Ideal C28, Wont Fire Up, Wont Do Anything.

Postby jamed2017 » Tue Feb 19, 2008 12:33 am


This last few weaks i've had problems with my boiler. I figured it was the gas valve (thingy m'bob) as it would try to fire but wouldnt, if i tapped it with a screw driver enuogh it would work for a few days (Lazy mans fix). Anywho it wasnt going to go away so i had the plummer around this morning and he confirmed my thoughts but we both agreed for the price of the part, if you could get it working and werent fussed about the slight inconvience then make do.

This evening however, Nothing. I hit the CH switch, nothing come's on. It doesent even try; same when i run the HW. :evil:

Any ideas?

Simply Build It

Simple things first is the water pressure high enough? From instruction manual.
"Check pressure gauge on boiler shows a minimum of 1 bar
If not re-pressurise via the filling loop to 1 bar (if unsure contact your
installer), turn off the tap on the filling loop and press the reset button (D) to
reset the boiler. If unable to do so or if the pressure continues to drop after
filling then contact your installer"
I entered Ideal 28 in google and plumbnation offer full manuals on their web site.
