No hot water in the morning

Post  Toby B on Sun Sep 01, 2013 5:14 am

Hello,

This problem started recently and seems to be happening more and more often where I go to have a shower in the morning and there's no hot water.

The tank is at the right level, and the green light is on. When this happens I tend to switch the pump switch on and off, and switch the peak button back on and then the hot water will return within 15 - 30 mins. Today took 90 minutes, but I don't know whether that's just from having the Peak on. The Off peak should have heated it overnight.

I really don't want to have to pay someone to come have a look at it if there is something really straightforward I'm missing or should be looking at, but this is beginning to become frustrating so any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

Toby B

First to say, this could be coursed by 3 things, one: Immersion faulty, two, thermostat faulty, three: sensor / pcb problem. First get a clamp meter and test the Immersion and thermostat. If both work, test the sensor.
I hope this helps

Thanks Mario.

Not knowing anything about boilers or how to check them, is it easy to get hold of a clamp meter?

And how exactly would I check the immersion and thermostat?

Thanks again, really appreciated

I guess, this was a foe times explain in the forum, You can get a clamp meter from any DIY shop or screw fix.
Test the resistant on the Immersion and the current electric flow, if live with the thermostat linked in. Check if the pipes internal at your Pulsacoil are hot in the morning.
hope this helps

Toby, I understand you are trying to save money but I would strongly recommend you get an expert out to do these checks. Some parts maybe live and could lead to injury. Just be careful if you decide to go ahead with it yourself.

Goodluck
