This was a boiler I looked at this week for a good little customer who lives in Herringthorpe, Rotherham, S65. He called me to say his Vaillant ecotec plus 418 heat-only boiler was leaking and appeared to still be leaking even after the boiler had been turned off.
This was a call I got to have a look at a Vaillant ecotec plus 630 system boiler in Wickersley, Rotherham, S66. The customer said the hot water was still working fine but the central heating would only work intermittently and that they often struggled to get it to come back on once it went off.
This was a repair on a Vaillant ecotec Plus 831 in Sheffield, S11. The pump was still working but was failing and was making a rumbling noise at certain speeds.
On these models the pump can vary its speed depending on the load on the system. As such I have found that often they may run quietly until they run at a certain speed at which point they can be quite loud.
This was a repair I did on a Vaillant ecotec pro which had stopped working altogether. The display was showing the dreaded, yet extremely common F.75 fault code. The early versions of the ecotec boilers were fitted with problematic pumps and early versions of the pressure sensors also suffered from issues.
This was the 2nd of my 6 jobs that I did on this Friday for a customer who lives in Barnsley, S72. This repair wasn’t anything major, actually quite a trivial problem.
These type of filters have an O ring seal at the top which can leak. On the lid it does stipulate that the lid should only be hand tightened, but often they get over tightened. There is a tool to remove the lid sometimes it is used to tighten the lid as well.
This was the first of 6 jobs I did on Friday the 2nd of November for a good customer of mine who lives in Barnsley, S70. These 6 jobs included 4 repairs and 2 services. I only got in at 20:00 that evening but I was able to complete all 6 jobs!
