Sorry to hear your having issues with your boiler, I have attached the fault finding diagram for the hot water system which you may find useful in future.

Can you confirm on the boiler which of the LEDs are shown when you run the hot water tap, and if any are flashing.

Regards

James

Only the green light saying the electric power is on. Nothing else. is lighting up.

i have just turned the heating on and I am getting hot water. Although the symbol for domestic hot water circuit is not showing green. With the heating on Burner indicator and central heating systems light are on.

It sounds like a hardware failure to me, to confirm you do not have an immersion tank, and 'normally' when you turn on the tap the boiler fires up and you get hot water within a few seconds of the tap running?

Actually now I have just turned heating off and hot water coming through. Still no green light though to say domestic hot water on. Maybe it just jerked something . I have turned the temperature of the hot water up as well. I will have to wait a while to see if it is still working.
yes that is right. Actually it seems to be working now strangely enough. I have left a message with my usual plumber who is coming tround when he gets back from holiday next week so maybe he can find a problem as you say with hardware.

Please do not sign me up for anything else as I have my plumber and a handyman who deals with all my repairs here in the village. This was just an emergency which seems to have sorted itself out. Thankyou thought for your help.
