@jimmy... found the valve and it looks exactly like your pic in the other thread but mine wont lift up at all and i dont want to adjust it..i can still hear the fan running when power is on and i tried the other 2 reset buttons ie. the red one on the burner and the one at the thermostat which is in my hotpress.. maybe its time for a phonecall


Your Hi-Limit stat will not be located in your Hot Press this is more likely your cylinder stat.

The Hi-Limit stat is located on the boiler( as opposed to the Burner) itself, and is normally a Grey or Orange box with a dial and a small cover screw.

If you can locate it remove the small black cover and press the concealed button below.

If this doesn't work your best bet is make that call.....

Sorry but you are clearly lost with this problem and have no clue of even the simplest things on your system, i really would suggest you get your local oftec tech in to have a look rather than us start to explain how to open this and that and test for live cables, i really wouldnt like to see the priest have to call.

the black knob unscrews to reveal a button that needs to be pushed firmly in to reset
