Ideal Mexico Boiler problem

Postby JasonandJulie » Sun Feb 06, 2011 10:08 am

I have one of these units (which will be replaced soon). Today it stopped working.

The pilot light works fine, and will stay on. Then when I switch on the electricity it works and the pilot light stays on. But when I adjust the dial on the boiler to 6 (as per the instructions), the gas ignites for a second then goes straight out, taking the pilot light with it.

If I do it the other way around, the dial goes to six and is fine (but does not ignite) but as soon as I switch on the electricty the pilot light goes straight out.

Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks for any help.
