    Boiler Not Turning on/no power

    Boiler Not Turning on/no power 15th Sep 17 at 9:52 AM
    Hi,
    So had a leak in my bathroom last month and it leaked into the kitchen.

    Noticed my boiler hasn't been running recently. There are no lights on the unit or on the unit on the wall. The model is baxi solo 3 40 pf. i suspect the fuse needs replacing? Not really sure.

    Any idea what the cost of repairing this would be or if i could do it?

    Check the fuse board first - has a switch tripped? Is there one just for 'boiler/heating' ?
    IF all ok, find where the power to the boiler comes from - it could be a fused spur outlet (and you can change the fuse for the same rating) or it could be plugged in (again, change fuse)

    Investigate and report back

    HTH

    Try changing the fuse in the plug or more likely fuse spur, if the timer is in the kitchen it's probably a fuse spur next to it.

    I'd be inclined to check the consumer unit for a tripped circuit breaker first.
