i have just had a new bolier fitted a combi. The hot water is fine but there is no heat out of any of the radiators. The heated towl-rail which is above the bolier is boiling. The pipes leading into my daughters room under the floor boards are hot and a few feet away the radiator is stone cold. I have bleed them flushed out all the water from the house and even taken the radiators of the walls and flushed water through them.
I have also put a sludge remover in 6 weeks ago and nothing?
I have no idea what to do. I lifted the floorboards outside the toilet and the pipes are freezing. Even downstairs pipes are freezing.
Need make/model of boiler etc.
Does it fire in CH only mode ?
More info please[/quote]

Boiler pilot light is going on and off every copule of minutes. This is probabaly becuase the only thing heating up is the Towel Rail. Then it goes off and that is it?
When we put on the hot water for a bath is fires up until the bath is full.
You don't need any help from here - you need the installer back and soon!
I sent this before your above post was approved. I still stand by it but I see now you say he's disappeared.
If you don't have his CORGI reg or any paperwork theres trouble brewing. Do you even have a name? If so go to Trading Standards without delay. They have to find where this guy stables his horse. He is a danger to the public IMHO.
"I have had British Gas in yesterday. They have told me i have a blockage and that it would cost for a power flush from them £700.00."
Ha Ha. Standard BG solution to every problem - sell a power flush! What evidence do they have that it's a blockage? Get a proper local, recommended heating engineer in to have a look and advise you.
hi there,in the past ive come across new installs that have become reverse installs.if u say there was no boiler there for 4 years do u know the previous set up. the new flow may be the previous return! are the trvs bi flow,if not the rads will not work or there may be a check valve under the floor or on the pipework,this may be the blockage bg are talking about in which case no powerflush will clear it and the power of the flush may damage the pipework if the flow is impeded. hope this helps
