  1. i  have had my candy aquamatic 3/5kg class aa for 6 years .all good till this morning put a wash in and awful smell and  smoke bellowing from the back  turned it of and unplugged it ..like every thing else its had its day as i dont think its safe to get it repaired. maybe good for spares for some one who as the same model ..the thing is as i am not doing much cruising this year so i am thinking of just going to get some thing from  currys comet argos  . could any one recommend a decent machine  size 27,inch high 20 wide 17 deep ...or even as any one got one for sale, must be  new or newish  thanks  

  2. well if i could get unlimited broadband i could get netflix even some thing called a dodgy box, then i could watch all the new films all sports  .but i think thats breaking the law ,,and we dont want to be doing that now do we ..what with all the other things going on in the world ,,electronic communications really worth it ...

  3. thanks every one ..i am not wanting a landline .at the moment i have 50 gig of  EE dongle for ..for  my laptop .then i went and got a smart tv. with netfix and all the other things that come with such tvs , ,so for me to use the tv and all it offers it would tak all my monthly data in a couple of days .so unlimited data is what i would need .the reason i mentioned the bt connection  box in the shed was becuse maybe that could be a way of getting unlimited broad band ..it was just some thing i was thinking abt really regards

  4. hi every one could any one help me with this one please ,i am looking into  unlimited broadband . is this doable and if so ..any of you guys have it ,when i took over my reso 5 years ago ..the former resident ,told me he had is landline phone in is boat ,at the time i thought ok i will go along with this ,but having cleared some rubbish out of a shed on the moorings .low and behold there was a bt connection mounted in the corner of the shed ..so maybe after all he did have a land line phone on is narrowboat ...i am prepared and waiting for all the jokes on this one ...lol but from it i may glean some info on this , kind regards

  6. hi cuthound thanks for getting back to me .if i could explain ..i put the meths in light fire then after a couple of mins it kicks in and runs great for abt 10 mins .then goes out ..it was running fine before i decided to give a good clean , i have not messed with the two little brass screws as i was told never to mess with those by the guy i got out to set the fire up and too which he had set them .when i cleaned the fire i took the float out and the other bits to give them a good glean maybe i have not put them back right ,but to be honest i dont see how i could have got that wrong as it went back the same way it came out .any ideas thanks again 

  7. its the thingy that controls the imput of the oil that feeds the fire .no need to pray tho lol theres more worthwhile thinks to pray for ,,,,i,e the bush fires in oz ,world wars .the use of plastic too name just a few ,thanks tho for your thought s

  8. hi all .i took my relfek fire apart today and gave it a good cleaning and overhall..put it back together and there seemed to be now problem i thought , but when i light it, it goes well for 5/10 mins then goes out .it seems not enough oil is getting into the toby dvr any advice with this please thanks in advance

  9. and i have just been informed ,,abt the blowing out of this make of fire ..there is some kind of nipple or could that be a thermo thing ,,any way i was told if that is not hot and goes cold it cuts of the diesel supply ...? or maybe i got that one wrong 

  10. i do use red diesel ,,and like i said this post was not abt how much it costs too run .it was more abt how much derv .sorry red diesel i use ..and as for blowing out this as never happened yet .maybe just been lucky that its not ..or maybe you lot have some other reason why it as not ...

  11. my enthusiasm dont need tempering ex.and i dont care in any way what the rest think ..i dont want that to sound nasty in any way ..its not ment too.but i can only say it how it is really .i just thought id put it out there .it as nothing to do with cost at all. was just amazed how much derv i am using .as for years i was told by boaters ..boaters who have been doing boating far longer then myself  ,telling me you dont want a derv fire ..if i knew what i know now i would have done this from day one ..each to there own ..so i will leave this now ..and wish you all merry xmas.just to say if any one is coming  up the wyley and essinton in the next few weeks theres  afair amount of  logs here pm if interested regards

  12. hi luggsy your fire looks loverly a lot like mine but with out the rads ..and like you i love mine too ..but i am at odds with this tho  there is now way i am using 10 gallons a week ,,i will gauge again over the next couple of weeks ...certainly a jerry can hold nearly 5 gallon ,,and when i need to fill them i never fill them up maybe just put in just over 4 gallon .and that last s a week ..or it could be i got my maths wrong ,,not one of my strong subjects ,,nor is spelling. or   english but hey im warm lol

  13. hi well my fire as been on for abt 6 weeks 24/7 why would i say that if it where not so ,its only my assumption that i am using abt 3 gallon it could be more it could be less .,i have not gone into as much details as your self im to busy watching paint dry ..but i take on board what you say ...as i would i do live on a boat ...i am just amazed how much it as used i am well chuffed i thought it would have been a lot more then that ..going by all the stories you here abt such sytems thanks 

  14. hi every one merry xmas to u all, well having sorted my relfek fire  pot and regulator  out, thanks to the guy from lockgate ..i have had it running non stop now for  abt 6 weeks 24/7 only turning off once a week for a couple of  hours  to clean it ,and i have to say  i have  not a problem with it ,up too yet touch wood ...and as i have tried to gauge how much derv its using ..i would guess it abt 3 gallon a week ,which in my mind is nothing saying its being used 24/7 compared to the logs and coal i use to use. the great  thing  abt it. now dust now mess and all the other things that come with coal burner .the only down side to it is i do miss the look of my old coal fire ,,having said that thumbs up for the reflek
