    Hi i need help i have a vokera maxin 24e boiler that keeps going to lockout on both heating and hot water
    I have had it serviced and an engineer look 5 times unable to find the fault

    It gets to temp then shits off as it should but the when it tries to light again it locks out so far we have had the following changed to no effect

    Pressure tubes
    Main heat exchanger
    Flame sensing electrode
    Spark electrode
    Pump
    Domestic micro switch
    Temperature sensor
    Flow switch
    Gas valve & ignition control pcb
    Gas valve
    Fan overrun thermostat
    Safety thermostat
    Fan

    So if none of them work what can it be

    This is quite an old boiler and your just wasting money are you doing this work your self ? Have you checked to see if any restrictions in the flue ?

    As above really, the money you spent on the parts and labour would have covered a new boiler and I believe a boiler which is a better than the one you currently have. I would not think of a mission but for a reasonable solution for long term.

    Good question of @jtsplumbing@jtsplumbing do you do the works yourself or do you hire always a fully gas safe eng8neer ?

    1st No it will never be as good as a new boiler it uses more gas for a start, need to change the wording a little It works BUT not as good, you have wasted money on this unit, it seems that neither of you has a clue what is going on with this boiler and your just replacing parts without knowing why ! your getting poor advise from your gas guy, you could have replaced this boiler with a Vokera easi-heat for around £500 with a 5 year warranty, you haven't found the fault with your boiler yet after replacing almost every part and over spending on it, what are you going to do if you replace the few remaining parts & it still doesn't work ?

    Is the gas safe engineer next to you Wiley fitting and working on a gas boiler? Again, as @jtsplumbing@jtsplumbing has mentioned above, neither you nor your gas safe engineer knows really what’s going on. I am quite surprised that you as a customer are so relaxed with the engineer. Usually the customers I know would have told me off already and would have hired a new one. Perhaps you could have safed a lot of money with a different engineer or as above said replaced with a vokera or Intergas boiler. Have you ever thought about getting someone from the manufacturer out to inspect if it’s the boiler at all
