Hi , is the hot water working? If not can you check the pressure gauge reading on the gauge at the bottom right , is it in the green ?

Hi , can you top the water up slightly using the filling loop underneath . open the two black taps until you see the pressure go up slightly . don't go into the red . turn off the power for two mins then back on . also do you have anything on the boiler displaydisplay?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I tried what you said but it seems to have made things worse - I turned on the hot tap and the boiler looked as if it would explode! The red light is still on the powerbreaker.

Sadly you have not helped but thank you for your efforts. I will call a plumber to come as soon as possible.

I hope I will not be charged.
