Today I noticed a lot of noise coming from the system and on investigation
decided it was an air lock in the pump.
At the to p of the boiler there is a Flow pipe with a drain valve and then
the flow pipe continues to the supply tank with a branch as overflow / vent.
The other pipe is the return and this has what look's like a bleed valve but
I am not sure.
In an attempt to loose the air in the system I tried to open the bleed valve
but was unsure so opened the drain valve in the flow pipe.
Nothing came out at all !
I ended up by bleeding a radiator. This solved the problem of the noise in
Unfortunately now the boiler does not work.
It fires for 30 seconds and then shuts down.
I think this must be due to there not being enough water in the heat
So how do I prime the boiler ?
In theory the water should just run in from the storage tank
Any ideas please.
