Hi guys we need help...

When I turn on the hot water tap in the kitchen, shower or wash hand basin I can hear the pump running but no water is flowing .....?

I have tried sucking on the tap in case there is an air blockage but to no avail :angry:

All the cold water outlets run fine ......

HELP !!!

Have you checked that the dump valve is not open near the boiler, some have a button that trips (and dumps water) when either manually pushed, or when temperature drops to 4 or 5oC (doubt its temp related this time of the year) or if the leisure battery has been disconnected,
it needs constant 12V to stay closed,

Other than that you may have a bit of limescale in the boiler that has flaked off and blocked the outlet pipe,

you could turn on hot taps and have a look under the van to check if theres any water being dumped,

Hope the Hymer is looking after ye well other than the minor hot tap issue
