GLEDHILL ELECTRAMATE  REPAIRS; INCLUDING 2000 AND A-CLASS

THE ELECTRAMATE 2000 HAS BEEN DESIGNED TO USE THE LATEST ADVANCES IN THERMAL STORAGE TO PROVIDE HOT WATER AT MAINS PRESSURE AND TRADITIONAL WET HEATING SYSTEM [RADIATORS] UTILLISING OFF PEAK OR ECONOMY ELECTRIC.

THIS IS A SEALED PRESSURISED SYSTEM WITH NO FEED AND EXPANSION TANK.

THE BOILER WORKS ON 1 BAR WATER PRESSURE FED INTO THE SYSTEM VIA A CA TYPE BACKFLOW PREVENTION VALVE WHICH WILL AUTOMATICALLY RE PRESSUIZE THE STORE SHOULD IT BE DEPLETED EITHER THROUGH LEAKS OR THROUGH EXPANSION AND CONTRACTION OF THE THERMAL STORE BACK TO 1 BAR AND THEN SHUT OFF.

COMMON PROBLEMS I HAVE SEEN AND REPAIRED  ON THE GLEDHILLELECTRAMATE 2000  ARE [ AND THEY ARE NOT EXHAUSTIVE]

1. CA / BACKFLOW PREVENTION VALVE , JAMMED OR SEIZED WITH LIMESCALE.THIS WILL USUALLY CAUSE A NOISEY SYSTEM  AS THE SYSTEM NEEDS 1 BAR PRESSURE TO OPERATE CORRECTLY.

2. PRV. PRESSURE RELIFE VALVE DRIPPING.

3. BOILER IN OVERHEAT DUE TO LOW THERMAL STORE PRESSURE WHEN CA VALVE IS SEIZED AND NOT INTRODUCING" MAKE UP WATER".

4. AUTOMATIC AIR VENT AND OR VACUM VALVE LEAKING.

5.DHW/ PHE / PHE RETURN /STORE TEMP SENSOR FAILURES.

6. JAMMED OR SEIZED PUMPS.

7. SYSTEM EXPANSION VESSEL DEPLETED.

8. 9KW FLOW BOILER FAILURE [ USUALLY 1 OF THE 2 HEATER ELEMENTS WILL HAVE FAILED, RENDERING THE UNIT NO GOOD.

9. PLATE HEAT EXCHANGER [PHE] SCALED UP DUE TO HARD WATER AREAS, AND WILL CAUSE UNSATISFACTORY HOT WATER SUPPLY.

10. BOILER OVERHEAT THERMOSTAT WILL TRIP IF

A. BOILER PUMP IS FAULTY/ SIEZED/ JAMMED.

B. CONTROL THERMOSTAT IS FAULTY ON RCB.

C. THE SYSTEM IS AIR LOCKED DUE TO LOW STORE PRESSURE AND POOR CIRCULATION THROUGH THE ELECTRIC BOILER CIRCUIT.

11. STORE OVERHEAT THERMOSTAT WILL TRIP IF

A. PUMP AND STORE TEMP SENSOR FAILURE / NB BOILER O/ HEAT STAT MUST BE REPLACED.

CA TYPE BACKFLOW PREVENTION VALVE,USED ON THE GLEDHILL ELECTRAMATE / GULFSTREAM,MOST COMMON PROBLEM IS THAT THEY LEAK AND A BUILD UP OF LIMESCALE WILL SEIZE THEM UP, RENDERING THEM UNOPERABLE, CAUSING LOW PRESSURE IN SYSTEM.

repair gledhill electramate 2000,heater bottle failure, had popped 25 amp fuse, tripped economy 7 breaker, replaced heater bottle and fuse, reset and tested. left in working order.

gledhill electramate 2000 repairs;this unit was leaking from 3 pumps valves, so continually losing pressure. the ca backflow prevention valve was seized and so not letting water into store to keep it around 1 bar pressure. replaced pump valves and backflow valve.left in working order.

gledhill electramate 2000 repairs; to the front is the anti vacum valve which is leaking, to the rear is the automatic air vent again leaking, these 2 items had been leaking for a while looking at the limescale build up. replaced and tested, left working.

electramate 2000 repairs ; replacement 9kw heater bottle supplied and fitted, tested heating and hot water.

 gledhill electramate 2000 power spikes during off peak power  tariff caused these relays to stick on sending 240 v continually to the relays which in turn melts associated wiring and relay back boards, this in turn will trip out off peak breaker and may damage the heater bottle.  if you look behind the relays , you can see where the unit is black and burnt .ely cambridgeshire.

 This is the casing of the above boiler, thank god for RCD BREAKERS !!!!!!

Back to the good old off peak power spikes again, this time in chatham, kent.
