Hi this is a new post for me, but we are in need of some advise!!!
We first realised there was a problem with our boiler when the rads were not getting hot and the house appeared very cold.
On closer inspection we noticed that the boiler kept on cutting out.
When the boiler is first turned on it fires up correctly and there does not appear to be any problems. However after 15 - 20 mins max the boiler will cut out. All the lights remain on apart from the 'pilot light.' On the inside the boiler is still sparking over and over as if is is trying to light but this does not work.
After 10 - 15 mins or so the boiler will then spring into action again and work completley normal.
This then continues over and over!!!
British gas have tested all the appliances and said that it could be the PC Board , which we have replaced. This makes no difference what so ever!!!
This is quite urgent as we go away next week and have a friend staying at our house currently with no heating!!!
I AM ASSUMING THAT THIS IS THE SOLO RANGE WHICH HAS THERMISTERS , BUT THERE ARE SEVERAL DIFFERENT PROBLEMS WHICH CAN CAUSE THIS TO HAPPEN... FAN NOT RUNNING AT FULL SPEED,, AIR PRESSURE SWITCH FALLING OFF, ETC. yOUR CORGI ENGINEER SHOULD BE ABLE TO DIAGNIOSE THE PROBLEM. Could even be down to a simple blocked jet, or faulty flame sensor.Thats the joy of fault finding... so many choices... :lol:
