Default How to get the key out of a Worcester Bosch Combi?

I have a pretty new Worcester Bosch Combi 27Cdi, and the plastic key
used to lock and unlock the link cannot be removed from the unlock
position. As it is plastic, and the fitting is plastic, I am reluctant
to apply to much force!! At the moment it is left in, just turned to
the unlocked position, and I don't suppose it will do any harm that
way, but how can it be removed please?

Donno. Maybe it's designed that way? Will it come out in the lock position?

If it's like my 24i junior, it need a good shove to get it in, and a
good tug to get it out. IIRC there's a black seal about halfway that's a
very tight fit

Yes, it did need a good shove to get in, and i did note the two 'O'
rings - maybe I just need to work at it....

They need quite good pull, to get them out. Pull down hard, whilst
turning it and you should feel it drop into the exit slot. Then it just
needs a good pull.

If it is in the unlocked position just pull it out. There is an O ring
seal that will resist but then it should pop out.

Mine (a WB Greenstar Junior 28) does allow the plastic key to be pulled
out. It has two O-rings on the shaft which make it difficult to pull
out. (does yours go in the bottom of the boiler, pointing down?)

You could do worse than check with WB technical. They have been
friendly and helpful on the two occasions that I've called with a query.

Thanks, mine is the same - I managed to remove it now with tenacity,
determination and patience.

As we are onto angle grinder I expect others saw and and lots know but
there was a program on TV where they used angle grinders to cut the toe
nails of llamas. How versatile the angle grinder is!

Seems to bit a sharp rise in people who speak "grunt".

Wonder if there's a(nother) new web gateway to uk.d-i-y?

On mine it enables the filling loop to top up the sealed bit from the cold
mains.

They seem to have given up on keys in recent models, no doubt the
hassle annoyed customers. It was 'unlocking' the fill-up loop.

I see. Mine doesn't have a filling loop internally at all, according to
the plumber who put it in. And arranged an external filling loop beside
it. With the keyed ones, were you supposed to detach the actual loop
(as in the old rules) or did the key obviate this step?

Are you talking about your dildo?

This might assist you with posting to a newsgroup, albeit through a website:

summarize the original at the top of the message, or include just
enough text of the original to give a context.

My Worcester green Star 37 CDI has just done the same grab with its key.
It happened 4 years ago when the boiler needed to be topped up, but it

This time ,the boiler is very greedy and won't release the key.
I phoned Worcester Bosch technical support and they suggested that I pay
£310.00 for an engineer to "look at it"
I suggested that the key has a design fault and should not behave like this.
I have turned the key to the closed position and it will stay like this .
The wife was getting worried about the system overpressurising as she read the
instructions. I can't see this happening if the stop valve is closed and the
key closed. No weeping from the mains should occur.
It looks like a nice way Bosch have invented to get a nice overpriced annual
service from panicking Joe bloggs.
Leave the key in and forgot about the stress .

People believe certain stories because everyone important tells them,

Indeed, when a conventional wisdom is at its fullest strength, ones
agreement with that conventional wisdom becomes almost a litmus test of

I was told by the installers to leave it in, as it is totally
unnecessary and only there for regulatory reasons
