no working fine

Thanks Paul, this could be one of two things.
It could be a bad zone valve which is what I suspect as you do have water coming from the hot spigot but it remains cold.
But it could also be the main control board at the boiler that is causing this problem as well because if that has a bad circuit on it the system may not be telling the hot water valve to open.
If you have tools and a meter for testing we can go further.But if not, it would need to be looked at by an engineer(heating technician) local to you.
I will stick with you until this is fixed so Please don’t forget to rate my service before closing this page,
then you can always contact me the very same way at no additional cost if you have further questions about this;-)
Thank you Paul and have a wonderful day!
