    We have a Corvec Brittony II multipoint that will only ignite the main burners if the temperature control knob on the front of the multipoint is turned up to its maximum heat setting - making the water too hot to use. Do you know what the problem could be?

    It probably needs a service, they require an intermittent service and safety check on a yearly basis and a proper full service every 3 years. When was its last full service? not just an annual safety check or intermittent service.

    Ok 2 yr ago so it is not due a full service for another year then, Did you have the basic service done last year? I would still have a full service carried out by your local GSR as it sounds like it needs one & they could also see if anything else is wrong while they are there. I do suspect what is wrong with it but am not willing to share this due to people trying to have a go themselves at mending their own gas appliances by reading these threads. Not saying you would be that daft though. Hence the advice to have a full service done as what I think it is will be changed on a full service.

    Thanks Darren, hopefully it is not a major component/problem then. Are you in the Kent area and if so what would be your charge for a full service.

    Sorry mate I'm in God's own county grand old Yorkshire. But up ere you would expect to be paying around £50-£60 ish for a basic service and £85-£95 ish for a full service. Best of luck mate & I hope it is just in need of a full service.

    Good advice from the guys above ^^^ , be aware some parts are getting hard to get hold of for these mulipoints , don’t throw a lot of money at it , it maybe time to change it depending on its age .
