Why is my heating or hot water not working?

Examples of common heating breakdowns include.

  1. No pressure or low pressure, Many boilers need a pressure of at least 0.6 bar to operate, the low pressure sensor will shut the boiler down if the pressure drops below this. Often a simple re pressurise via the filling loop and then a check for leaks will reveal the problem, which would likely be a prv (pressure relief valve) letting by and dripping outside, or a leak on the heating system or boiler. Often a prv would blow when the system is hot as a result of the expansion vessel having a low air pressure and the expansion from the water has nowhere to go so the system pressure rises beyond the setting of the prv causing it to release water to outside as it is designed to do. never cap off a prv! prv’s often do not re seal once opened as a result of dirty system water.
  2. Motorised zone valve or mid position valve, usually its the synchron motor that fails, it can also be the microswitch, gearing, spindle or the valve body itself.
  3. Boiler breakdowns, The causes of which are many including fan motors, printed circuit boards, gas valves, Scaled up plate heat exchangers, sensors, flow switches and multiple burner components.
  4. Circulators / pumps, the electric motors burn out get seized or the capacitors can blow, they can also be blocked by the debris which is present in some systems,
  5. Programmers / timers, whether Satchwell, Potterton, Drayton, Honeywell or Siemens none of them last forever, its usually small electrical contacts that fail within the pcb (printed circuit board).

Frequently Asked Questions

There is usually a flexible filling loop near the pressure gauge or beneath the boiler, open the valves on either end of the loop until the pressure reaches 1-1.5 bar, then shut the valves. You can now reset your system, If you cannot see the filling loop you may have a filling link, please see our how to videos for a clear demonstration .
This could be down to sludge in the system or a defective pump
This is usually an issue with a stuck motorised zone valve
You either have a leak on your heating system or you have an issue with a prv (pressure relief valve) or expansion vessel.
This is usually due to a stuck or incorrectly set radiator valve, air or sludge in the system
Simply loosen the bleed screw at the top of the radiator with a radiator key until water comes out then re tighten the bleed screw. For a clear demonstration on how to bleed various types of radiator please see our how to video on how to bleed a radiator.
