Only one switch to switch-on pulsa coil

Post  Sarfraz on Thu May 30, 2013 4:44 pm

Hi,

We have just moved into a new apartment and I am trying to understand how pulsacoil a class works.

In most of the forums I have read that there will be 2 switches connected to the heater! One for day time heating and the other for off peak night time heating. However in my flat I see that the heater is connected to only one switch!! What does this mean? Does this mean that my heater works only with daytime power supply? We have economy 7 meter and I don't see any timers near the heater.

Also, would be able to give an indication of how much power is consumed by this heater per hour?

Thanks,
Sarfraz

Hi Sunny,

I hope you don't mind if if I ask you a question about my A class....
Do you know where the open vent to drain the cylinder is at all?

Thanks for your help.

Drain off valve, not open vent

Hi Rob,

I am guessing here you mean drain off valve? This is used to empty the cylinder. This is located just below the bottom element.

Hi Sunny,

Thanks for your help.
yep, I've found the valve but I can't drain anything - I presume it's because I need to open a vent at the top of the cylinder? The other option I suppose would be to put a tube into the vent (inside a hose) to allow some air to drain out. I'm also a bit concerned about how I will fill the tank back up if I can empty it as there will probably be an air lock in there?

Cheers

Rob

Sorry Rob, this only means, your drain cock is blocked from settlement in the cylinder. This is happen quite often. The only way then is to disconnect your F&E tank, push your house in the 22mm air vent pipe and try to drain out as match as you can to take the top immersion heater out. If you have the top immersion out, take the house in there and drain the rest of the cylinder water out from there.
Filling ,( after fitting new immersion and re connect the F&E tank of course) use the house now and push in to the 15mm filling pipe, connect to a tap and force the water in until water comes out of the 22mm air vent pipe. If water comes out there, the cylinder is full and the air is out. Disconnect the PHE return sensor connector , to run the pump for about 1 minute and re connect, to also vent the PHE out and switch your Pulsacoil back on. Job done.

I would try a cloth hanger first

The drain off may just be blocked a little, get on of those old metal cloth hangers and use it to clean out the drain off valve is in the open position. If this doesn't work than I would go for Mario's approach.
