I had a new combi boiler fitted in Nov 2010 and now my kitchen hot tap has started to slow to a trickle and then stop altogether. Why? I have checked pressure on boiler and it is set to 1 bar. Both bath and basin hot taps are working fine. This started a couple of days ago. The water doesn't lose any heat

Its in the wrong place that is why, request it be moved to misc using the report button.
#8
Because this should be in misc as it is not a deal, ask a mod to move it
#9
should you not be covered for any problems as it was only installed in nov 2010
#10
Any mods out there who could move this post please. Dont want to upset any more people with my mistake.

But thanks to those who have answered by PM

Pay a man to come in and fix it whilst you sit on the couch watching telly whilst swigging fine continental lager.

Extremely satisfying.

Other than that, sorry - I have no idea how to solve your problem. But I will vote HOT for the sheer noveltly value.

Good luck.

Moved to misc

Hi fern, what type of kitchen tap do you have i.e quarter turn, mixer or standard spindle taps
#14
it could be something simple as the tap washer. Cant see it being an airlock and if all the other taps are working then you know its the tap.
