Have just had the gas man around but an still without heating and hot water. He has checked the pump which is working fine.
The pilot light is on in the boiler. When I turn the hot water and central heating 'on' from the timer, it sounds as though the boiler is doing its' job. A few seconds after, there is this knocking / igniting sound and then the pilot light goes off.
I have had air locks in my water which has previoulsy affected my heating and hot water but I have cured the problem by running the taps through and bleeding the radiators.
I am replacing and reloacting my boiler (as my existing one is old) but not for another month (the gas man has advised that when I have this done the current problem should resolve).
- Will putting hand over tap and pushing cold water back resolve the current problem ?
- What boiler do you recommend I go for i.e. combi, non-combi, condensing ?
