I have a Potterton Flamingo II boiler, which i realise is getting on a
bit now, but it has developed a slight problem.
The thermostat dial ranges from 1 to 4. If i keep the setting between 1
and 2 everything is ok but anywhere beyond this and the pilot light
keeps going out. It'll fire up just once then seems to blow out. Is
this a problem with thermostat itself. If so where can I get parts.

This is a low tech boiler with an over heat cut out on the pilot.
If the "1" or "2" setting is adequate then leave it on low and organise
the replacment of the main thermostat. The t/stat has become increasingly
insensitive of the years.
If "1" or "2" is not warm enough then the over heat stat has become too
sensitive and should be replaced.
You get the parts either online or at a boiler spares shop. Shoudl not be
more than £20 in either case.
