    "Obsolete" Glow Worm Hideway 50 Boiler

    "Obsolete" Glow Worm Hideway 50 Boiler 1st Dec 17 at 10:14 AM
    I am told by an Engineer that the gas valve to this boiler has failed. We have both tried to obtain a replacement without success, including the manufacturer who states that it is obsolete!

    To see me through the holidays until I look to purchase another boiler, is anybody aware whether it is possible to have the gas valve refurbished and if yes, who?

    Model of the boiler 41/313/15.
    Thanks for any assistance.

    I’ve never heard of it being done before, maybe worth asking the gas valve manufacturer but I would be amazed if it could be done.

    If I put 'Glow Worm Hideaway 50 gas valve' into Google, it brings up dozens of entries, mainly for around £100. The part number of the first one matches the 203329 quoted in the user manual.
