I have a problem with my Alpha SY9 - 24 boiler. For some time now, intermittently, the orange light has flashed rapidly and the boiler won't light. Sometimes if I switch it off and on at the socket or try Reset it will burst into life, but these days that does not seem to work. It will just come on in it's own good time.

The user guide says that it is a Temperature Sensor Fault - contact service engineer. That will be my next step, but I wonder if any one knows if this sounds expensive?

Another rather strange thing is that my timer clock on the central heating/hot water control has suddenly lost about 5 hours (no powercut) twice in recent weeks.

I would like to have some idea of what is going on before I call the engineer out.
