    Gas boiler repair help 3rd Dec 17 at 5:10 PM
    I need help and fast.
    My gas boiler Glow Worm Spacesaver mk2 won't relight pilot light.
    Turned off and on several times but still won't light.
    My problem other than no heating or hot water is that I am on universal credit and have very limited money for repair.
    Looking at call out is approx £70 to £120 which I just do not have if I need to get repaired.
    Any help or advice other than ask universal credit for help as that is a no chance.

    About 4 years ago we used BG for a flat fee for one repair of £99 BUT we had to take out cover with them for what was then £20 a month.
