Have a Chaffotaux Maury Britany Combi SE boiler

Customer Question

Have a Chaffotaux Maury Britany Combi SE boiler in a Pemberton Static Caravan.8 years old. Problem is that when I turn on the hot water tap the boiler fires up but almost straightaway the water flow stops and the boiler cuts out.This is accompanied by a squeeling noise from the boiler. The end result is that I have no hot water in my caravan and so we cannot use the van. I am not a plumber or gas engineer. I am at my wits end and need urgent advice. Please help. If I have not described the problem well enough could you please give me a number I can ring. Regards, XXXXX XXXXX

Hi my name is XXXXX XXXXX we are not allowed to give out numbers on here. If the boiler is switched off do you then get a flow of water through the tap.

JACUSTOMER-dlpzjicj- :

I have a local heating engineer on the case and i assume that he has checked that.

JACUSTOMER-dlpzjicj- :

He says it could be a number of things and he has mentioned an actuator or internal spindle but he will not change because he is not certain it is the case.

JACUSTOMER-dlpzjicj- :

He says he needs a specialist in these typpe of boilers to diagnose and fix.

JACUSTOMER-dlpzjicj- :

Are you a specialist in these boilers.

JACUSTOMER-dlpzjicj- :

my independent trawling of the internet says these boliers can be a problem and they affer a range of solutions.

JACUSTOMER-dlpzjicj- :

this dooes not help me.

JACUSTOMER-dlpzjicj- :

I am going to ask my local heating engineer plumber to go direct to the manufacturer.

JACUSTOMER-dlpzjicj- :

Unless you can give me a specific answer......I have also been it could be a three way valve,a diverter ,diaphragm or micro switch......I will thank you for your time and sign off.

JACUSTOMER-dlpzjicj- :

Having no knowledge whatsoever makes it difficult for me to get into a dialogue with you and going through just answers by me was not the best way to find an answer
