Baxi Boiler not firing, pilot light ok

Please help me, as BG can't.
Basically when we came back from holiday we noticed that two of our radiators had leaked. Subsequently the heating slowly deteriorated, we bled all the rads, but no heating down stairs. Turn off all the rads upstairs and we were getting heat down. Then that slowly got worse.

Called BG homecare and they said they thought it was a cold feed blockage, try draining a downstairs rad, if header tank doesn't drain viola there is your problem.

Tried this, all working fine, so I have rebled all the rads downstairs, then up, no air coming out, just water. Turn the thermostat up, flick the switch to hot water and heating, and make sure that the time dial is set to come on... nothing, you can hear the boiler click, but it doesn;t fire up. the pump is new and is working.

I'm getting really frustrated now, any help would be gratefully received!!

The boiler is an old baxi (the house is 20 years old, so prolly not changed from new), I cannot find a serial / model number anywhere on it. but if it helps the removalable panal is held in by two clips and magnets, when you take this off there is a ignition button and next to it a green switch that you click to the left which has a flame embossed onto it.

    Hi, I CAN HELP YOU!!! :) I hope you had a nice holiday? Your boiler is a baxi WM boiler,granted it is old but so what! It's easily fixed! :) Let me ask you some questions... Is the pilot light on? I'm suspecting that you have a faulty gas valve, but please answer my questions first Thanks Steve

First check the pilot is alight, it sounds like it is cause you can hear the boiler click. that click is the gas vale solenoid trying to open, if there is 240-230volts at gas valve when you here the click and pilot is alight the gas valve is broken. if you test for voltage look on the gas valve and see if its 240 or 24v obviously if it 24 v check for 24 volts, let me know

SOURCE: water gets hot then turns cold and runs cold then hot again

Secondary heat exchanger is blocked on sealed system side.
Remove and de-scale heat exchanger or fit new one.

Hiya. I have an old baxi boiler wm 38/RS . The pilot light is on but the boiler will not fire up . Can u help me


Rubbish!
Cleaning the jet is a job ONLY for a gas fitter as it involves disturbing both the case seals and the gas pipework. DON'T RISK YOUR SAFETY, besides which if the pilot wasn't powerful enough it would continually go out.
Check (if you're competant to do so) that there's 240vac across the gas valve solenoid connections. If so then the gas valve will need replacing by a GAS SAFE REGISTERED fitter.

Got a baxi bermuda 552, back boiler not working


Hi clean pilot light and change the thermocouple , you will have to remove the gasfire to get to the boiler if unsure best get a gas fitter to do this as this is not easy to explaine , simple job but you have to know what you are doing , it might be you need a service on the bbu and the gasfire then the thermocouple could be done at this time.
