A failing DHW sensor is the usual problem, but that low reading of 46 degrees is FAR too high. This suggests your heat exchanger is clogged up with water scale. I think a new one will fix it.

Hi Mike
Thanks for your advice, is it worth changing the sensor(cheapest option) or just change the heat exchanger,any idea what the temps are supposed to be at the sensors?

Thanks Dave
