No Hot Water

Postby rbcm » Fri Aug 15, 2008 3:43 pm

I have just moved into a new flat and am unfamiliar with the hot water systems in the UK.

I have a thermostat, a boiler in the kitchen (pilot light is lit) and I believe a immersion heater. It has a control panel that controls the heater and hot water. I have tried setting the hot water to ON constantly and also ALL DAY which is meant to come on at 6:00 am till 10:30pm.

My problem is even though I hear it start up and the control panel light is on, I have no hot water and the shower has no pressure.

Can anyone tell me how to fix this problem?
