    Hi guys, my boiler was doing it since I bought the house a year ago but now it is doing it more often and all night. Before it kicks in it is making a scratching noise, hard to describe. I tried to show to my gas engineer but of course it was fine when he was at my house. Maybe it is normal for ****ty Ideal Isar boilers. I managed to record it

    Any ideas?

    That certainly needs attention get a GSI to diagnose and repair the fault . Kop

    Engineer turned up, investigated and the verdict was - actuator valve head. Advised me not to spend 250 quid on repair, save money and wait until the boiler brakes, then get a new Vaillant with 10 years warranty parts and labour. Didn't charge me a penny as well

    I wouldn’t repair but would fit a new Vaillant now. These boilers are aweful. But that is just my opinion.

    Yeah Ideal is not ideal for sure :) a few engineers refused to touch this boiler saying not worth it

    You could get a one off fixed price repair from Ideal if your finances are stretched ? the reason being if additional parts are needed then this will be covered in the cost you pay, If not I would advise you get it changed . Kop
