    Hi,

    I was unaware that my MH had tripped adn as such the heater in there went off and it got down to -3 last night:Sad:

    I have put the electric heater back on etc but I am concerned about the boiler adn we are due to be gong out in it today (the Mh onot the boiler:Rofl1:)

    I have looked at the instruction manual and it seems that there is an emergency valve that open when below 3c and I have ti close when aboe 7c i cannot though find the valve and worried I may damage something

    Any advice would be appreciated
    Thanks
    Gary

    Ours is a approx 3x3x3inch black lump with a red button on top. Pipes and wires go to it. It dumps your water to protect the boiler. Ours has a clothes peg on at the moment because it's too sensitive. Look close to the boiler.

    Pull the red knob up to close.

    The valve might not stay closed if the temperature is still low. Switch on the space heating to warm up the boiler. The Combi is designed to 'run dry' for space heating only.

    Thanks All,

    Found it right at the back of the boiler as it turns out it hadn't tripped out and it is all working

    again many thanks:thumb::thumb:
