Potterton boiler problem

Postby siinsussex » Mon Apr 29, 2013 6:31 am

I have a potterton performa combination boiler and recently when you try to run hot water or turn the room stat up for heating it will fire up but only stays lit for about 10 seconds then the flame goes out again, you can hear the fan going still and after about 30 seconds it will flame up, goes for a few seconds and then goes out again, and suggestions please?

Sorry to see no-one came back to you on this problem. Have you checked your boiler pressure is correct?

If it is a pressure issue then Potterton have a good instructional video of how to repressure your boiler on their site http://www.heateam.co.uk/how-to-guides-boilers/

You can get help from a qualified and insured local tradesman on our main website http://www.diydoctor.org.uk/find-tradesmen/
