      hi there 'diamondgas' thanks for replying to my querie about the cooker installation. sorry if it seems a stupid question to have asked but i do not fit many cookers/hobs and im struggling to be honest. the exisiting installation was fitted via a cooker hose and bayonet at such a low level i could hardly get to the cooker bayonet when i pulled it forward! what would you suggest i do in this situation like i said its almost impossible to get to the sides of the cooker unit as the cooker unit has been fitted within the kitchen like half of a 50p so not only have you got to cut the sides of two cupboards there a void inbetween. for this reason i asked the inital question?

      Hi diamond gas, thanks again for your help so far, but I would really like some more, I have read your "About Me" and I may be out of order doing this, but I thought why wait for the monkeys to reply when you can speak to the organ grinder. As mentioned I replaced the PCB last May, on examining the old board I found two dry joints, I re soldered the joints and kept the board as a "Just in case" I put this board in the boiler today and lo and behold the fault is just the same, intermittent hot water. Though it does look as if I have fixed the original board. As far as I'm aware I have proved everything that has the ability to turn of the gas, what am I missing.

    Lots of years experience in most area's of gas linstallation, repair and maintenace. I started in 1978 with the then Northern Gas and spend 25 years there, leaving B-Gas for pastures new! I concentrated on installation design for quite some time but for sometime have honed my expertise in repairs, branching out into commerical heating. I am self employed and enjoying the freedom it brings.
