Very unusual problem with my boiler


Hi people,

I have a Worcester Bosch 24 CDi boiler. I have had this since 2004. It has been working brilliantly since then.

However, in the last few days we haven't been getting any hot water. In fact the only time we get hot water is when we switch on the heater button on the boiler (you know with the thermostat). Other then that, no hot water. Even with the heater switch on, sometimes hot water comes and sometimes hot water doesn't. We don't what's going on. Also we don't get any water coming through our toilet either. Both of these happened at the same time.

Anyone knows what's going on?

The middle red light on the boiler (which has the tap sign on it) doesn't come on either.

If it helps, this happened at a time when our main water pipe was leaking and was in the process of being repaired and the workers did switch the main water pipe off several times whilst our boiler was on and heating was on.

When you say "we don't get any hot water" do you mean that water comes out, but it's cold, or that you turn on the hot tap, and nothing comes out?

I was going with no water as I don't think the toilet would have been piped to hot water.

Water does come but cold water only. No hot water. Only time hot water comes is when we put on the heater.

any ideas what it could be? Would you say it sounds like a diverter value gone?

If you have water flow from the hot taps, I can't imagine this problem is related to the toilet not getting any water.

By diverter valve, do you mean a tub/shower diverter valve? How do you think that might be related?

I did a google search for "no hot water for Worcester Bosch", several people mentioned something about diverter value or diaphragm getting stuck

Take a look at their site and go in the installer area. There are many manuals that can be downloaded.
