Vaillant combi boiler - HELP

A friend has a vaillant 837e combi boiler with low pressure. She cannot find any valve for the filling loop - I have looked every where on the internet but to no joy -
Thus it is now down to ribnet to prove that everything is covered here!! With the fees that plumbers charge there must be plumber with a rib (probably a scorpion!! )

Can you see the heating fill input, itís usually on the heating return with a non return-check valve? One solution would be to get the garden hose from an outside tap or kitchen sink etc and fill it from there.

hope this helps

Some answers off the net - they MAY help - it does have a built in loop!!!


my valliant fill valve is underneath the boiler to the right hand side at the front, there are 2 holes in a grill underneath and it is the second one in. There should be a small key that operates this, L shaped with valliant on it but the bit that slots in is the same as a smallish normal screwdriver so a screwdriver should turn it and let the water in to raise the pressure for you


by the boiler if you have a flexable hose type pipe it should have a screw (set in a horizontal position) turn this to vertical position using a screwdriver and you should hear the pipes filling. If you dont have this then your is the other type and you have to do it from underneath as mentioned above.

if codders needs any special tools for servicing old boilers he knocks em up in his extensive workshops, and he has a three phase supply for his toys which will bring the smile to the face of many a boiler. Not sure but maybe they call em sheep in wales.

Yes have a degree in Googling!!!!

The only boilers I have any experience of are nuclear ones - and that's just the theory side - they wouldn't let me loose on the real thing!!!

At home I have a wood burner - it's great and FREE to run!!! No worries for me when the gas goes up in price 3 times this winter - unless the electric runs out cos the idiots rely on it instead of nuke!!! Still I also have a nice big genny!!!
