long story short, boiler stopped working. fault light indicated fan or blocked flue. further checks in manual said check for 230v at fan connections (easy, i'm a spark). no voltage suggested pcb fail. boiler man agreed, changed pcb, now boiler won't get hot enough ( only to 60) and when turning up rads there's no "rush" of water coming in. any suggestions.:confused:

Your old boiler needs a right good sorting.....

Do you like films about gladiators?

Zippy, all the rads are heating to the top, just not as hot as they could be. hot water is fine, heating control knob is maxed out

You might want to check that the thermostat is working properly and that there is no limescale build-up on the elements.

Good idea.

That usually calms him down.

It's a bit cold in here, maybe we should order in a curry?

DADDEO - call your boilerman back. And tell him to bring some beer.

With a nick like "Daddio" he's probably one of the lanistae (http://www.encyclo.co.uk/define/lanista) and can take his pick :laugh
