“potterton gold 28 he combi”

Written on: 27/12/2011

This combi can be quite noisy when starting from cold you get some pump noise and gas burner noise, and then it settles down a bit when the rads are up to temp. Ours is in the old airing cupboard next to the bedrooms so it can be heard more easily, don't think you would hear it if it was down stairs in the kitchen etc It does provide an excellent shower which is only next door we have a aqualisa dual with a drencher head and it is very powerful and you get a constant hot flow which doesn't… Read Full Review

Have had this boiler (Potterton Gold HE 28)now for just over 4 years, have had constant problems with leaks and E119 messages (which are now getting worse now the warranty has expired. having them about 3 to 4 times a day)... when the plumber that installed it say's this is quite common in this boiler....but we only got them about once a month (if that) when in warranty....

E119 is low system pressure. absolutely nothing to do with the boiler. you have possibly been mis guided by your installer. Get a good reliable plumber!!!

Written on: 04/06/2010

Owned this boiler now for almost 4 years. I bought this boiler because it came with a three year warranty, had a good A rating and was a Which? magazine recommendation. It is slightly noisier than boilers at other houses which I have lived in. In the past 4 years it has had about 5 breakdowns. The last one being major in that the inlet valve mecanism for mains water burst (made of cast brass) and it was like niagra falls coming out of the boiler. Luckily my boiler is in the garage so not too… Read Full Review

“We have the Potterton Gold 33 HE which is just the...”

Written on: 07/04/2010

We have the Potterton Gold 33 HE which is just the higher output version, it gives a great HW flow so no complaints there. The controls on the front of the boiler are very easy to understand & use. It's not the most attractive boiler out there but most of them will more than likely be tucked away in a cupboard.

My only real criticism so far is that it's quite a noisy boiler compared to others I've heard. My friend has an Alpha boiler & you can hardly hear it when it's running so I would bear… Read Full Review

If he is a gas engineer he should not be tampering with Pcb repairs unless he has electronic qualification this will nulify housing insurance !

“Takes about 1-2 mins to produce hot water so when...”

Written on: 11/12/2009 by mannimanoj (3 reviews written)

Takes about 1-2 mins to produce hot water so when you're washing your hands half the time you turn off the tap before it even heats up.

PCB failed 6 months ago and cost £200 to replace just after the 3yr gaurantee.
Keeps producing an error code 133 (the manual says gas supply problem) but works ok when it is reset or switched off for a few minutes. This happens around 10-20 times per year so far. My inlaws have had a Valiant boiler for past 4 years with no probs at all and instant hot… Read Full Review
