Ideal c24 when switching on the boiler it ignites for 8 to 10 seconds, then it cuts off and the lock out lamp comes on. pressing the reset button or turning on the hot water tap has the same effect. Any ideas? The pilot does not light when turning on hot water. we leave the hot water on the go unplug and replug the electrical cord and it will work just long enough to get wet and soaped up then no hot water again. any suggestions. would like to fix it myself if possible. please advice Rheem Pronto RTG-74PVN-1

My worcester bosch 28 si 11 series is fireing up on heating and systematicaly every couple of seconds turning the flame down to half flame then turning back up to full flame and the spark electrodes are...


This could well be a fan relay fault on the pcb, as in if the fan is cutting in and out it's triggering the pressure switch which in turn is sending confusing signals to the ignition and gas valve. Have you removed the controls connector cover and observed the righthand of the two little white boxes in the middle of the control board (pcb) with the boiler switched on? (be careful because it's live i.e DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING) Is it sparking?

I HAVE A HALSTEAD ACER HIGH BOILER AND IT IT IS SAYING LOCK OUT ON THE BOILER WHAT CAN I DO TO FIX IT


The overload button is on the left underside of the unit. There is a finger sized hol and the button is in there. Once you have reseet the button you will also have to reset the boiler by using the switch on the control panel (furhtest left switch).

My dad has a valliant boiler VP4 ZE15 IT IS AROUND 3 YEARS OLD IT ISNOT IGNITING I HAVE TURNED PRESSURE UP AND HELD THE BUTTON IN FOR A MINUTE. i CANNOT FIND WHWERE THE RESET BUTTON IS TO TRY THIS PLEASE...


Turn the power off at the wall , wait 60 seconds and the boiler will automatically reset.

Modern boilers are complex re safety and the boiler will only start if the exhaust fan is running and is up to speed .

The vacuum caused by the fan trips a switch and allows ignition to continue

If the pilot light does not come on it does not warm up the thermocouple which turns on the main gas valve.

If you go to the Valliant website they will supply you with a user guide

Hi Jurgie,
I'm Harvey, the Master Plumber,
Happy to render my assistance.

This is your problem!
When you are switching on the boiler it ignites for 8 to 10 seconds, then it cuts off and the lock out lamp comes on. Pressing the reset button or turning on the hot water tap has the same effect.

I need to get the make and model of your specific boiler to give you an accurate answer!
Waiting for your response.
Harvey, your Master Plumber.
