    hi guys, went to see a intergas combi. Zero pressure so I tryed to fill it up but digital guage didn't go up. Then the prv on the boiler started making a loud noise like a rattling.so I stopped trying to fill up.

    Any ideas?

    the pressure sensor is blocked rattling noise is the prv opening when you have filled past 3 bar

    Sounds like the digi sender eg the part that senses the pressure in the boiler either blocked or fecked

    Does the boiler still work if so fit an external gauge

    You can still get hot water from the tap. What would you do?

    Would a inline filling loop with guage be suitable? I need to replace the filling loop any way. Would this cure the problem ?

    Will only be blocked where the pressure gauge connects in

    Won't cure the gauge not working but will at least tell you the pressure in the system

    Not a hard repair bud it's only a slight blockage but it won't harm to add a gauge . Kop

    Is there any way of cleaning the existing pressure sensor?

    Disconnect it and clean it out where it joins the block

    Normally giving a tap on a flat surface and a good wash out sorts it but not guaranteed

    Cheers I'll try that. I've ordered a inline pressure guage and I'll clean it. I'll also remove the pressure sensor and clean that out too.. fingers crossed.
    Thank you a lot guys your my bread and water !

    it is a semiconductor component i.e. electronic a good clean may sort it but probably not
