Hi we have a vaillant ecotec boiler every month or so we have a f22 code which we sort out,however this time bar code when heating and water off is within range 1.5 we have no fault codes however only water is on no sign of Central heating just wondered if there is something we can do ourselves or whether engineer call out is only option thanks nick

Customer: A controller in hallway of bungalow believe it is wireless ?
Customer: Do you need more info ?
***** ***** : When you turn the heating on, does the pump start?
***** ***** : Can you take the the transmitter off the walll and sit it under the boiler and see if the boiler fires again for heating?
