I am looking for someone who is familiar with Vailants and can diagnose the fault first time rather than guess as what part is faulty only to find it is something else.

I am in this Thursday if anyone can come on than day.
Looking at age of boiler, i think Vaillant made quite a few "pro" system boilers before replacing them all with the "plus" models. The "pro" models are the achilles heal for Vaillant and pump problems are common on these models. They use a cheaper pump with cheaper pump seals which degrade and bang go the pump bearings.

Bet u need a new pump.

Yes I think it is a pro model. The noise sounds like a noisy aquarium pump I had but a lot worse!

Lets hope Mr Bradley can sort it.

We would have to come and give you a free quote, you may need to take into account extra work such as gas run (pipe size), position of new boiler and flue options, wiring, central heating filters, plus things like thermostats on the radiators/wall and are your current radiators in good condition.
You really need the old system flushing before the new installation is carried out and if your wanting a boiler recommendation the only one i give now is the Ideal logic + with a 5 year warranty really great boiler especially the larger kw models.

Check out our fixed prices at www.oneheating.co.uk.

We have recently rebranded and have a showroom in Doncaster centre on the high street.

We can now offer Vaillant boilers with 5 years warranty as standard for less than the equivalent ideal logic.

Happy to quote.

Regards Steven Peacock.

Ps we appeared in the business section of the Sheffield star tonight. An article about our new showroom.

From what i have heard combis are more trouble than the savings using them.I have an old ,at least 35 years old gas back boiler,apart from servicing it has cost nothing in repairs.Last year i fitted a woodburner into the system and saved over 600 pounds on the gas bill.

Hi,
Looking for some advice, my boiler has stopped heating (water and CH). The flame is still lit and it sounds as though it is starting up when I turn on the hot tap. Just no hot water. A friend said it might be something to do with the fan?
Any ideas?

wouldnt like to say for definite without looking at it but when you run the hot tap for a little while does the flow pipe on the heating start to get hot?
what make and model boiler do you have?
cheers Jon

If it is not firing up on CH or hot water then it may well be the fan, as you suspect, would need to do a few checks to confirm the exact problem. Currently booked up next few days but could visit next week if you are not sorted before then, cheers, Steve

Go in false roof and see if there is plenty water in the central heating header tank small one some times valve sticks and tank runs dry. Common fault

I do not agree. A combi will prove reliable if it is installed correctly, system flushed adequately and a quality appliance fitted. If a cheap combi is fitted poorly and the system not flushed adequately then you may well have problems. Converting from a back-boiler to a combi will give at least 30% saving on your gas bill, cheers, Steve
