Chaffoteaux Britony Combi boiler repair Plymouth PL7

P1020495P102049629 oct 2013. Had to change a leaky diverter valve on a Britony 80 combi boiler. The customer had ignored the slow leak for many months which had caused rusting of chassis as shown in pic. The brittle plastic body of the valve had minute hairline cracks visible under magnification. Boiler worked well after new part installation.

Not many of these left in service these days. They burn a bit more gas than modern boilers but you save a fortune in spare parts compared to modern boilers which have a lot of sensitive electronic and mechanical parts with a limited service life.. After nearly 30 years it was still in great shape and the customer was in no hurry to replace it.Those of you in the know may be allarmed at the yellow flame picture but its just dust inside the burner from all the disturbance and it soon settled back to a nice blue.All ready for the next 30 years.

I performed an electrical test with a multimeter and found NO FAULT AT ALL on the boiler.The fault was in the external wiring to the timeswitch.
