For a while our boiler has been going out at fairly infrequent intervals,
but enough to call the gas engieer out under our service plan on the bolier.
The first time he came, he said he thought it was a high stat (well I think
thats what he said)
This was ordered, and fitted on Tuesday as well as servicing the boiler.
Within an hour of him leaving the boiler went out again, and I conatcted him
and he said another part has been aordered.
Now there is no loss to water presure and I can light the boiler after a
few minutes after it goes out.
However tonight I relit it and with a few mins it went out again, This
carried on for 5 times so I guess I am stuck with the boiler not working for
However when I lit the boiler, you can see the flame though a class panel
I press the gas knpb down for maybe 30 seconds and the release it and full
presssure gas comes though
However I have noticed that when holding the gas knob down at the beginning
I get a clear blue flame that does not flicker.
Once its released and full gas comes though, it goes to a yellow flame and
looking at it the gas pressure seems to drop every few seconds and the flame
flikers about and then returns to a strong flame,. this happens for a few
minutes and then it simply shuts off.
I know this is a long shot for maybe a poorly worded problem, but any ideas
what it may be ?
