hi there all.
I could really do with some advice here as i am fed up of waking up freezing.
i've got a vaillant TURBOMax 824E, it's about 18 months old (but i've only lived here about 10 months). a couple of months after i moved in it started playing up. ever now and again it will stop working and show a F.62 fault. this is supposedly an irreversible electronic fault. would changing the pcb cure this. if not what else could it be. any one else had this prob.

cheers
p.s. it could happen 6-7 times a day, or go fine for upto 5 days.

ive got a turbomax 828e
and that had simmiler probs. the heating would come on when it felt like it show numerous fault codes.
got vaillant out as it was still under warrenty
first thing enginer done was ask if some one had been out from them all ready to change a part.
on saying no he imediatley went to his van and came back with a new part, i think it was valve that switches between heating and hot water, changed that no props since.
i feel the origal parts must have been faulty and the new part modified.
on talking to someone else about this i think vaillant would change part reguadless of warrenty,
but if you phone them they will not admit to there being a design/manufactering fault but will advise you to let them send you enginer who will change part.
this did happen about two years ago though, but needless to say there would be still be some of these boilers with fault still in mearchants.
and yours could be one of them.
sorry about spelling.

if your boiler is still under warranty, 2 years with vaillant,
then you can call an engineer out for no charge. If it isn't
under warranty I am sure vaillant will sting you BIG
amounts for doing this. I would gte some advice, either
from solicitor or CAB, on your rights. This is a fault in the
manufacture of the boiler. I reckon that means vaillant
SHOULD come out and fix it for free, even if it is out of
warranty period (assuming of course it is the same
fault). I remember something from studying small
amounts of law a while ago that a product has to match
the level of quality it is being sold for..... I will be happy
to be used a test case if you need to contact vaillant.
contact me on matt_taylor@mac.com
