Wondered if any kind sould at there can help. I went on holiday last week and came back to find no hot water or heating. After a little faultfinding the pilot light refuses to light. I have followed the instructions on relighting it but it sounds like no gas is coming out near the pilot. Is there anything simple I can try? Maybe there's a blockage in the nozzle or something? It seems to be sparking fine but won't light up at all!
When I went away I turned the heating down to 15 degrees to come on once a day for an hour, so it wasn't turned off completely and I have not had a problem with it for as long as I have been living there (nearly a year).
