    As you look under the boiler you will see 2 black dials that link together, that is your filling loop all you need to do is turn them both and your boiler should fill up, once you reach 1 to 1.5 bar turn them off, but I would have you boiler checked by a registered engineer as it looks like you might have a leak as there is some corrosion under the boiler.

    Have had a look, and there is non that link together. That’s the confusing part. Any ideas please?

    Thank you mate, the one on the right is turned on already. When I trun the left nothing happens. Am hoping a turning the right knob. The two black ones.

    They turn opposite ways and they have to open quite far.

    do the knobs open fully then stop turning or do they carry on turning?
    the left should turn anti clockwise and the right clockwise

    Undo the screw which holds the handle on pull it off and use a small adjustable spanner to turn the filling loop valve on you should hear it filling
