towel rails

Post  a saleh on Fri Jan 20, 2017 5:02 am

Hi Mike,

I have a 10yr old Boilermate OV A Class. The heating and hot water work fine, but the towel rails (3 of them), do not seem to work - ie whenever the rest of the heating is on, they are not, and other random times, they don't seem to work. This is both in summer and winter.

I'm not sure if they ever worked. i recall my neighbour noticed many years ago, but I guess I've not really done anything about it

What should I be looking for to help diagnose this problem.

many thanks

a saleh

Make sure your boiler is on MAX

When the unit is hot test the heating.
If working ok.
Then go round the house turning off the rads which are working.

Check the towel rails for air?
If TRV's fitted make sure pins are not stuck.
And or make sure the valves are open.
If all the rads are off.
Chances are the 3 towel rails will work.
