Main Combi 24 HE - Intermittent hot water. Faulty diaphragm 5111137

Main Combi 24HE boiler is constantly leaking from the bottom

  • Hot water does't always come on. It seems like the boiler is temperamental and decides by himself whether to heat the water or not. 
  • The leak doesn't affect the system pressure
  • Check the nut and the diaphragm inside the flow-switch valve. If the diaphragm has holes in it then replace the diaphragm
  • The part number is 5111137
  • To replace isolate the water supply to the boiler.
  • No need to drain the central heating


Underfloor Heating

PolyPlumb Leaking thermostatic vavle

Underfloor heating doesn't work.
Every time it switches on the fuse inside the wiring centre blows
Disconnect a wire from the pump and try again.
If the fuse doesn't blow then replace the pump
The pump damage might have been caused by a leak. 
In my case the manifold thermostat located right above the pump was leaking on it.
Replace the thermostatic vavle
The part number is Polyplumb Thermostatic Mixing Valve PB970029
