Hi All,

Just had the boiler serviced and the guy played around with the pressure as he needed to just the boiler down in order to service change a part not sure exactly why as the part was the "ignitor" which he said goes regularly on the WB 42Cdi Combi and mine was on borrowed time. Anyhow today I noticed a couple of drips appearing by sheer luck on ...

 Post subject: Intergas HRE 24 SB with NEST - OpenTherm failure
PostPosted: Mon Mar 18, 2019 9:19 pm 
We've had a NEST v3 thermostat working perfectly with our Intergas HRE 24 SB for well over 18 months, when the NEST started reporting error h73 - "Couldn't detect an OpenTherm connection". I switched the thermostat to On/Off mode and that seemed to get us going, but the boiler would then often not switch off and leave the heating going. Had a local (independent) engineer out today to have a look, and he thought he ...

 Post subject: Boiler not working, fan fault
PostPosted: Sat Mar 16, 2019 5:50 pm 
Hi all,

My boilers just stopped working, it is a MAIN System HE 18.

The fan error light is flashing and resetting the boiler doesn't work.

I can hear the boiler pump start, and then the fan starts then after a few seconds the warning light flashes.

It is blowing a gale outside and initially the boiler did start and the rads started getting warm then it stopped.

I can hear the wind blowing down ...

 Post subject: Valiant EcoMax pro fault F05
PostPosted: Thu Mar 14, 2019 6:46 pm 
We had an interruption to our cold water supply and power. Just for an hour or so, then next morning our central heating came on but no hot water it wouldn’t fire up. Couldn’t get a plumber for a week, so used the immersion for a week. Then one week later fault f05 showed and heating and water turned off. Plumber changed the valve which changes from hot water to heating. This didn’t work so ...

 Post subject: Danfoss RMT 230 replacement
PostPosted: Wed Mar 13, 2019 4:52 pm 
I currently have a RMT230 with wires connected to terminals 4 (black), 1(Brown) and 2(Blue)

Am I correct in saying, having bought the RET1000MS as reccomended by Danfoss that the wiring should be N (Black), L (Brown) and 2 (Blue).

I have tried asking Danfoss support but they don't respond to the e-mails.

Thanks if anyone can help.

 Post subject: intergas eco rf 24 versus intergas xtreme 24
PostPosted: Sat Mar 09, 2019 10:38 am 
hi there,

about to have a new boiler installed. Current one is about 25 years old and isn't condensing. I've already had a plumber around and we decided on the intergas eco rf 24 as being a good option.

However I've just learnt that there's a new Xtreme version out. Any idea which is better? Most concerning for me is noise levels as it's in a bedroom cupboard (modulation?). Also the warranties are important to ...

 Post subject: HIVE 2 - Remove old Thermostat
PostPosted: Fri Mar 08, 2019 8:48 am

I installed the hub, the dual receiver great fired up hot water working fine. Central heating hmmm ok.... :?

Next step thermostat...ok so I have a wired thermostat and need to make it redundant, but really stuck and wondering if anyone would be kind enough to guide ...

 Post subject: Add on fan assistance for radiators?
PostPosted: Thu Mar 07, 2019 4:33 pm 
I have found a number of makes and models of fans mounted both on top and underneath existing radiators, I have got a Myson fan assisted radiator and it works well, but unlike normal radiators there are no lock shield valves or TRV's the water has free passage and output is controlled by fan speed and switching fan off/on, it also will not activate fan until radiator is warm, main advantage it is very small ...
