Discuss Can anyone identify this Redring boiler? in the Central Heating Forum area at

    Hi all,
    I’m a homeowner with an old (>15 years) Redring central heating boiler. I’m trying to identify it so I can find out more info and determine what servicing it requires, if any. The boiler has a galvanised steel casing and is built into the fireplace. There is a separate pump to circulate water around the radiators. I also have a separate immersion so assume this isn’t a combi. I’d be grateful for any leads because Redring can’t help!

    And it's not Gas.

    I would say the elements are behind the plates where the flexible black conduit goes into the boiler.
    After confirming safe isolation the connections to the elements would need checking for tightness.
    As would connections in the control box.

    And using a clamp ammeter confirm the current for each element.

    Very little servicing required to electrical boilers.

    Thanks all. I’m trying to find out what the model might be. I’m selling the house and want to be able to convince potential purchasers that it’s a good system. It’s worked fine for the 13 years I’ve owned the house but it doesn’t seem to be enough.
