We have moved into a new property that has a hot water tank style boiler, we are used to combi.

We were getting some hot water when we left it on "cont" (continuous).

However, now we are struggling to get any hot water, even if we leave it on for 6 hours, not a drop.

I have attached a photo of the set up, showing which pipes coming from the tank feel hot/cold.

Any ideas? (should we just have to leave it on 24/7)?

Thanks

First I'd turn it all off and slowly open the airbleed which is at the top of the single pipe just above your red writing and see if there's any air in it.

:withstupid:

The lowest pipe out of the cylinder will always be cold as that is the cold fill to the cylinder

It was randomly working but yesterday went cold again, so we followed your advice. It's now gone hot again, hurray. Thank you, hopefully this has done the trick.
