BM2K not refilling from F&E tank

Post  big iain on Sun Aug 21, 2011 12:41 pm

Hi,
We had a leak in our heating system and we drained the system to repair pipe. We turned the mains back on but the Boilermate 2000 would not refill from the F&E tank, we even thought putting mains up a radiator. Any ideas?

Ta in advance

Blocked cold feed into unit.
See the post;
BOILERMATE SEEMS TO STICK AND STORED WATER DOES NOT HEAT UP?

Seconded. Blocked cold fill pipe inside the Boilermate.

Fill it from the drain cock or through the open vent to get it going again in a hurry. As a permanent fix, fit a new, external cold fill pipe from the header tank to the drain cock tapping.

Cheers, Mike
