    We have this boiler installed and it's started to give issues. The service was done and passed ok. But only as there was no noise for the guy to hear. Radiators are fine.

    Potterton 28 odd behaviour?

    Hi All. As this is quite an old boiler ‐ I'm hoping there are many people familiar with this issue. The boiler works normally for hours (hot water and/or radiators). Then, it appears to be resetting itself every few seconds. This may only be a problem for radiators? Hot Water and radiator...

    Fully pumped CH systems? Potterton Profile 80e conventional boiler.

    AFAIK the boiler is set to fully pumped. (The switch inside is on fully pumped), however the pump is only running while the boiler burner is actually lit. My understanding is that a fully pumped system should have the pump running for a while after the burner goes off to circulate the heated...
