Central Heating not getting hot

Postby mufasa » Sun May 30, 2010 9:57 pm

Could anybody assist me?

I have recently moved into a house that had no heating whatsoever.

I have managed to get the domestic hot water working by installing a new immersion heater but the central heating is not getting hot.

I have switched on the WILO pump and can hear it working but stil radiators are not getting hot.

Any help would be appreciated.

Does the boiler burner ignite ?

Is the pilot alight ?

is the boiler running at any point?
it could be that the pump has seized, it will still make a humming noise, but it will not circulate any water
