Cane some one help me please its my comb boiler its a alpha 23/27 i have no hot water or heating i have done all the fault finding still not working i had a gas fitter in and he can not fix it .What is happing is when i reset it ,it goes though the start up pump starts then fan starts then it starts to click but it will not light so the gas fitter put a new gas valve in in but it still will not light he done all the tests but no joy why will it not light (please please help me ):confused:


  • Hi

    If it were me I would check to see if the click results in a spark at the electrode. If not, then where does the spark go? Short circuit ? None at all ?Broken ignition lead or PCB problem I would say.

    It doesn't sound as though the gas fitter is very methodical.Find someone else.

    There are two scenarios here . From the sound of your posts you have got someone from a phone book who is stringing you along to milk your wallet OR you have done it yourself.
    Either way you should get someone competent to fix it.
