Little stuck, my towel radiator plastic chrome brackets were damaged, so I
drained the CH system and removed the rad.
I drained the CH system from the drain in the garden. When i disconnected the
silver flexi filling loop on the boiler, there was a lot of gurgling from the
Potterton Performa 24 it self - like it was filling up with air or something!!
Then the hot water stopped working -which I wasnt expecting.
Now I have replaced the towel rad, refilled the CH system and bleed the rad. The
pressure gauge on boiler is showing 1.4
However I am still not able to get DHW or CH! The burner is not lighting either,
even if I request CH system to start or open hot water taps, any ideas on whats
I am suspecting that there is some sort of air lock in the boiler it self, not
sure how to release.
I was trying and ended up turning the PRV on the boiler, now the pressure gague
has dropped to zero and the garden is soaked from the overflow pipe!!
I have tried to refill the system but water just drops out from the overflow
value, I think I have caused another problem and might need to replace the PRV
Any suggestions on how to get the burner/DHW/CH working again.....
