gledhill 2000 pulse coil

Post  trudy ryan on Sun Jan 11, 2009 4:05 am

Hello, we have lived in out flat for 3 years, had engineers out 3 times, firstly the water was not hot enough, they said the bioler is set at 55c , they said they would report back to whoever fitted the boiler, but we heard nothing. We are now in a situation where the water is only tepid and we have to constantly turn the boost button on to get half an hour of water, this is costing us more money and a lot of cold showers. Do you have any suggestions what we can do please.

Hi Trudy,

This sounds to me as though the installers (or somebody who doesn't really understand these units) has changed the factory pre-settings on the immersion heater thermostats to the same setting that a normal hot water cylinder should have, i.e. 55 degrees C. The thermostats actually need to be set to MAX (or 73 degrees C) for the unit to work correctly and produce properly hot water from the taps.

As you say the tap water temperature is getting worse, it sounds to me as though the heat exchanger is gradually getting contaminated with water scale too, but that's a different problem.

To deal with the first issue, either you, or a comptenent technician, needs to remove the black plastic covers from the two immersion heaters and turn the two thermostats up to MAX. (Turn the power OFF first!) This will make the world of difference to the hot water performance.

If the second problem remains then it is probably either water scale in the heat exchanger or a failing heat sensor, and you'll need to get a Gledhill specialist in to fix it (unless you are handy with spanners yourself and are up for DIYing it!)

Hope that helps,


Cheers, Mike
