    Alright basically I shut off and drained a radiator pipe so I could change a valve and after I put it back together I expected to be able to just bleed the system... however the whole hot water and heating system just stopped working, no pressure at all when I try bleed the radiators & boiler just goes red light when I try switch on... any help?

    No it’s not a combi boiler, i found out that the ball valve at top of house above water tank was stuck so I released it and all the radiators have pressure and bled fine... the boiler started to work... but again stopped straight away! The system seems fine but the boiler just doesn’t seem to be powering properly... it shows one green light but no ignition lights
