    Possable that you have a sticky gas valve, can you here it click when calling for heat ? Also try turning off pilot let it reset then relight and try again not a lot to go wrong with these boilers.

    You will need a gas safe engineer for this fault

    It's basic fault finding on the gas valve, thermostat and controls. You can't get a lot more basic. You'll have covered fault finding on the gas valve when you did your CCN1.
