Question about Heating & Cooling
Which turbomax, as there a two different models. The more modern one, with the brass CPL diverter valve, located at the front left of the boiler, was very prone sticking & jamming, this would restrict flow through the hot water circuit in the boiler, and cause cycling. Vaillant actually modified the diverter. You can identify, if it is the old type, as there is a very small hole in the middle of the diverter on the old ones, probable no more than 1mm-2mm wide. The modfied one, is much bigger approx 5mm wide. If old type, replace as this usally sorts the problem

I had this. Open up the main case, take the second inner case front off to expose the boiler.
Clean the thermocouple which detects the flame being lit with some steel wool held with needle nose pliers. It will be all sooty and will turn off the gas as a safety precaution if it does not detect heat fast enough.
Don't listen to the gas man who will say "needs a new circuit board mate" as this is usually a stock response.
