    Hi I have an Alpha cd28c combi boiler,it stopped running hot water,heating was ok.New diverter valve and motor fitted.Boiler now continually losing pressure overnight.New Pressure Relief Valve fitted still loses pressure,new Auto Air Vent fitted and now pipe feeding condensate trap dripping water.Most noticeable when room stat is manually increased.Any ideas as engineer seems stumped.

    Failing finding another engineer, ask your engineer to contact Alpha technical helpline.

    Perhaps not, but if his engineer is stumped, I was merely offering a solution other than to get another engineer.

    so why not just give him your possible answer instead of him racking up bills on another clueless engineer, I would be thinking heat exchanger

    Because me actual other recommendation would be to take it out and put a Vaillant in its place.

    Alpha fixed price repair might be a good option

    Ok sorry op I’ve not seen or diagnosed your boiler I’ve took a guess at a possible answer, advised what your engineer could check and if correct your probably cheaper with new boiler but doesn’t need to be Vaillant as advised
