Hi, I have just moved into a new flat and have been experiencing the problems with the boiler. The landlord has had an engineer out two weeks ago who said part of it was overheating and we needed a new part. The problem is this: we have intermittent spells of hot water, roughly one minute and inconsistent. We cannot run the bath and cannot get hot water every time we run the tap - the other day there was none at all all day. For the past few days there has been a strange smell coming from the boiler (which is in our bedroom). It is not a gas smell, but unpleasant nonetheless. We have a carbon monoxide detector next to the boiler but are extremely worried!
What could it be?
Hope you can put our minds at rest as the landlord is dragging his heels. Should I get an engineer out myself or wait for him to?
