Brittony se80 boiler and system has been power flushed hot

Resolved Question:

hi Brittony se80 boiler and system has been power flushed hot water is fine !
Heating is slow to circulate ! leaves boiler ok but gets to temperature quickly
and cuts off ie cycles ! Is there a drain on boiler so as can check if there is a filter
on return that could be blocked ! ? How can I check wether diverter valve is not operating
and not open fully hence slow to allow return back from heating cheers

Hi , it could be that the diverter valve is not coming over fully for heating. If it has a removable motorhead , remove it and check inside for movement. You may be able to manually move the valve to check for movement and that its not stuck

Its not removeable ! appears it will need draining down ! you can see spindle moving up & down when hot water operated ! ?

Hi, there is a central heating filter on the boiler. As it was powerflushed there is a high possibility that this is blocked. Its on the return ( far right pupe) as it comes in . Drain and remove the return isolating valve. The installation manual showing this can be found by googling brittony se80 installation manual and downloading.
