Plumber won’t come to fix tap - need to do it myself!

Plumber says the tap just needs tightened and it’s not worth his while to come out for it. Appreciate that but I think a part is missing that would be used to tighten the underside. https://ibb.co/0KSg0bM https://ibb.co/HT84PkR Any ideas? Is the part from underneath standard or don’t need to work ou...

Re: 0 Bar on Glow Worm boiler - yellow lever not working to top up?

Found a black little valve tucked under what I think is called the filling loop. Put the other valves back to the way they were. It worked to fill the boiler pressure I think as the front panel changed from pressure to temperature (annoyingly as I couldn't see what bar it was). It's now in some sort...

Re: 0 Bar on Glow Worm boiler - yellow lever not working to top up?

Oops, well since posting this I see it's nothing to do with the yellow valve!

There are three black valves under the boiler and this video looks similar to mine:

When I use the screwdriver to turn clockwise the two right hand side valves though nothing happens!

0 Bar on Glow Worm boiler - yellow lever not working to top up?

Old boiler broke earlier in the year and landlord had a new one installed.I can't really remember how I topped up before. Tried the yellow lever but nothing happens. Youtube videos on it say you need to release two levers first, but the model looks different to mine. m m m m Do you guys who if I'm s...

Not sure which nobs to turn to repressurise Vokera boiler

Every video and diagram looks a bit different, scared to do something wrong!

It's a Vokera boiler, but the manual for it is generic and not for this exact model. Anyone has any idea? Just moved into this new place for a bit. Pressure is nearly 0 on it.

I want to buy a new fan. One that just plugs into the existing connectors.

Pulled out Bathroom Extractor fan and it was Some Plug in Type Socket - Anyone Recognise it?

Electrician hasn't shown up twice to replace the fan so last night I pulled it out myself out of curiosity. Now I'm thinking this looks DIY'able! Google left me more confused though. The brand Silavent seems popular but I can't tell which one has the connector that matches it. If anyone has any idea...
