    My Worcester Greenstar 29 CDI boiler made a loud bang earlier today, and has now stopped working.

    It is flashing the 'EA' error code, which according to the manual, means no flame is being detected.

    I tried resetting the boiler a couple of times but upon doing so, it just makes an extremely loud vibrating/humming noise intermittently, and then turns off and flashes the EA error code again.

    Could anyone advise what the issue is? Boiler is only 3 years old. According to the manual, the EA code means either no gas in the house, frozen condensate pipe or blocked flue outlet.

    Wondering if this is something I could fix myself or if I need a gas safe engineer to come and have a look

    Gas safe engineer. Surely still under warranty.

    Warranty only valid provided has been serviced every year though I imagine, though don't have the Worcester t&c's to hand.

    You can fix yourself if it’s a lack of gas, by which I mean if you have a top up meter and have ran out, or Network has been turned off.
    Anything else gas engineer/Worcester warranty required.

    Edit: Check your emergency control valve - been to 2 recently where they had been accidentally knocked off.

    As above. Sounds like it needs a good service.
