    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.

    Not to sure how we stand legally giveing advise on site, if person asking desides to do repair themselfs and somthing happens can we be held libel ?? Plumb center ect told not to give advise to people !!

    no we cant be held liable(unless someone dies) but we need to think before we reply

    So if some-one desides to repair a gas appliance after asking for advise , blows up is house or dies of CO then we can be held libel ?? Wonder how meny have done own repairs and how safe is it now ?? Starts to get a bit scary !!
