My hot water was constantly hot, so I contracted an electrician to change the thermostat on the hot water cylinder, but my water is still boiling hot and even when the HW is turned off at the time clock the HW valve keeps opening and closing and the only way to stop it is to turn the boiler off at the mains, does this mean that I need a new motorised valve?
Also the pump is hot, is this because the water is only feeding through it
each time the valve opens?
Just to let people know, the electrician came back and it had been wired in the wrong way round, so problem now solved :-)
