SOURCE: boiler cuts off after abt 20 secs of igniting,hot

Yes usually it is indeed the thermostat, or Thermistor, all part of the control circuit. You did not indicate what type of setup you have. I suggest you Google for a thing called a service manual. This will aid in diagnosis, and repair of your system.

Hi i have a potterton netaheat profile 50 pilot is lite but main burner will not can u help please ?

There is a black reset button underneath the boiler, a safety over heat button, try resetting it if the pump has no flow restrictions, then most likely the over heat stat is failing.

Hi. We have a potterton netaheat profile boiler and the pressure has dropped so low nothing will work. I know it needs to be recharged but don't know how to do it. The only visible pipes are on the top...

The cold water feed to the boiler is where you will find the refill point which should be at the base of the boiler where all the pipes come in

Ihave an old potterton netaheat 6/10 the pilot will light but main valve won,t open it was working fine until we had several power cuts any ideas thanks

Sounds like your gas solenoid has failed, you need to contact a gas safe engineer to fit you a complete gas valve and carry out the safety checks required.

My potterton boiler ignites itself after turning it on then goes out

Assuming this is a combi boiler and you mean that the main gas burner comes on then off:-
How long after - 5-20 secs check overheat thermostat Check the wires to it are firmly in place i.e. making a connection. If Ok? then you can short this out by joining the wires together - do with boiler OFF at mains electricity
Longer - say 1-2 mins check secondary heat exchanger for blockage - usually furred up inside & only solution is replacement

Potterton Profile 60e doesn't start first time

could be fan speed or air pressure switch-is case seal sealing properly also check grommets under boiler for blowing.

Water heater pilot light

it also sounds as though the pilot injector could be blocked so when the boiler comes on it extinguishes the pilot & then when the burner goes off boiler shuts down, or also the pilot rate maynot be set right, so when the main burner kicks in it robs the pilot of the gas it requires.
It could be that, or there is lack of ventilation for the boiler, so you get flame lift off when the boiler fires?
