Boiler flames extinguish and reignite regularly

I have a 5 year old microgenus 27 Ariston water boiler. Recently the flames have been going on and off in both hot water and central heating modes whilst the fan has continued to run. So from the tap I get hot then cold then hot etc. With the heating on the radiators take ages to warm up because the flames are out more than they are on.
5 visits from Ariston nominated engineers have resulted in renewals of the thermistors, the electrical control panel, the air pressure switch, the main flow control valve and the cleaning out of the heat exchanger,with no success. In fact after the APS was changed the hot water was on for even less time than originally so it was worse still. The APS was part 571651 which the Ariston tech department tell me is the correct part,but I have my doubts.
I am now being quoted 2 grand for a new boiler.
Does anybody have any ideas?
Thank you.

    Hi mate, I have the same issue. I was also getting a flickering fume light and the boiler sometimes cutting out. The fault was a faulty APS. the Microswitch on the APS has a noisy contact. Swapping this out with a known good fixed the problem. In your case it might we worth checking the condition on the cable/connectors related to the APS. Hope this helps.

Many boilers seem to use a more or less common type of thermister although actual fixings vary. My experience of one of these from another brand of boiler was 670 ohms at 10 deg C and 10 -11 k ohms at 20 deg C

Ariston Microgenus 27 boiler - leaking motorised valve


The leak is coming from a seal around the pin that the motor acts upon, the seal does not come as a replaceable part on its own, so the whole flow group as it is called will need to be replaced, approximate price 170 to 200 pounds inc vat, makers part no 998613. plus 2 or 3 hours labour of a corgi registered engineer. If your boiler is more than 6 years old and you have not had to replace the fan or other parts yet, then think about getting a new high efficiency boiler, it could be a better long term solution.

Ariston Microgenus 27mffi combi boiler


im an engineer and recently had exactly the same thing with this ariston boiler, i found out it was the the 'air pressure switch', this is a switch which is part of the ignition, it works in conjuction with the fan. when the boiler fires up the air pressure switch makes, if its faulty it can break the circuit mid flow and cause the burner to shut down therefore giving intermittent hot water and heating, theres a possibility that the aps tubes may be damaged as well so ensure they'e condition is good. hope this helps you
