sorry to ask what seems to be a commonly asked question. I have an Alpha
240x combi-boiler. The other day, I noticed that I am no longer getting hot
tap water from the system. The central heating system works fine, however -
and if I turn the hot water tap on after the central heating has been on
for a while, for a few seconds I get some hot water, but then it turns cold
soon after. When I turn on the hot water tap, I no longer hear the boiler
firing up like it used to.
Can anyone help with with a basic prognosis, or give me a clue how to find
out more information on what is wrong with it, before I call a plumber and
get fleeced? From reading google groups, it appears that it may be the
diverter valve that has a problem.
If it's any use, the problem seemed to start the other day when my washing
machine was on a cycle, and I simultaneously had a hot water tap running in
the bathroom (sink... I was shaving...).
Hope someone can help.
