Overheating!!

Post  Po on Wed Aug 19, 2009 10:10 am

Hi,

I noticed the top tank needed filling so I topped it up, then for some reason over the weekend the boiler blew a fuse. Now although there is enough water in it, the overheat light won't light up and I can't press the reset button as it won't press in. The boiler itself feels warm, we've got no hot water but I can't help but suspect the warmth has more to do with the temperature in the flat?? Is that silly and how can I get it going again??

Many thanks,

Po

Ho Po,

Did you get this fixed? It sounds like failure of the overheat protection thermostat to me, along with possibly a heater element failure too.

Cheers, Mike

Checked water level?

Have you checked the water level? If the water level is fine but the overheat stat won't reset and the unit is cold, that would most likely indicate the overheat that is faulty. If a fuse blew, do you know which 1? there could be up to 3 fuses
