Hi All,

I have an Alpha CD32C. Was trying to top up the pressure via the twisty plastic valve on the filling loop yesterday but the plastic started to come away from the valve. Consequently the valve won't turn and so I can't top up the pressure. I'll try to attach a photo which might make things clearer.

I'm useless at these things but can someone kindly advise. Should I try to pull the rest of the plastic off and if so, how can I add more pressure - is it just a matter of turning the screw in the photo or is there a lever of some sort behind the plastic? Or is it easy to source and fit a new plastic bit of the valve? I should add that the boiler is built into a corner unit and is awkward to get at.

Thanks in advance, any help appreciated.

I would wait for one of our pro gas guys to direct you. It is usually a case of undoing the Phillips screw and removing the broken tap. There will in all probability be a square drive or a spline and you can get some grips or a spanner on it to operate the valve. Make sure you can turn it on and off easily with a good fit spanner or grips as it will not need much water for the top up, just an quick on/off.
