MY IDEAL LOGIC 30 HAS FAULT CODE L2 ALMOST EVERY DAY SINCE INSTALATION DEC 2010


is boiler still under warranty?
normal warranty lasts at least 2 years
if so get ideal to send one of their engineers out
L2 relates to flame failure
either boiler has failed to ignite
or
boiler has not detected flame once lit

several causes

failure to ignite
ignition electrode/spark generator

failure to detect lit flame
detection electrode/detection lead

blocked condensate pipe
or defective condensate syphonic trap

you really need an engineer to check these components

We have just bought a brand new 480cd gas rayburn boiler/cooker and it is making a very loud constant whistling noise. When the cooker part only is on there is no noise but just when boiler is going


This can be caused by several things. Incorrect Gas to Air mixture in the burner air intake valve. . Debris in the gas line to the boiler. To high a gas pressure. Depending on whether you installed this unit or not, will determine if you should try to repair or troubleshoot these issues. If it was professionally installed call the company that installed it. The only one you can't troubleshoot is the gas pressure. That needs to be done by a certified gas technician.

Hope this helps steer you in the right direction to solving the problem.

Britony 80 combi boiler G31 propane, gas flow rate =0.124877 cubic meters per hour, inlet pressure 37mbar, room sealed flu Manufactures recommended Co2 & NFGT unknown, cold water from hot tap when...


You gave a good description of the boiler--
now we need to hear the clues you have observed, as it fires (or fails to fire-- or what?)

Or as the water flow-- or doesn't flow?
As the cold water enters-- what does the flame do?
And does the flow rate reduce as the flow gets to the divert er valve?

How old is the boiler?-- and have we been using HARD water?
(Any water softener in the circuit to remove calcium and magnesium, etc.?)
Do you suspect a scaling problem in the interior parts?
If so-- can you circuit an acid thru the innards, to clean up the scale?

Please comment on what happens when water and gas flow-- so we can help you get to the next step.

Heating boiler ideal elan 2 starts and runs for a time then stops and has to be reset using under side button,its been suggested that the boiler themostate may need replacement help anyone please


Suggestion is correct, more than likely the heat thermostat.
Advice:just call in a local heating engineer, its not a job for you and it will be cheaper in the long run. A botch job could cost you more than just money !

I would like to convert my water heater and boiler system to natural gas


If you are using LP, you will have to change the orfices and spring in the gas valve. The problem is, if the boiler is over 5yrs. old you will have a real hard time finding these parts. You could
probably change the gas valve, but probably no luck on the
burner orfices.

With the Water heater, it is probably cheaper to replace the water heater.

Vaillant boiler (VCW GB 221) not heating up water or heating although the pilot is lit. Pump is heard working okay but there is small drips of water underneath boiler. Any idea's?


The movement of the diverter valve is critical on this appliance, and is located on rear right of the boiler, when hot water is turned on, theres are two microswitches, which must break (they both close in Central heating mode), if pump is running, it is recognising the hot water demand, check microswitches are breaking, if not, it tends to be a defective servo valve (located above the water valve), or a blocked/ restricted control line (small copper tubes which connect into the servo valve)

you could have a problem with a temperature sensor.
it would not be the flame sensor since it could not wait 6 mins to sense that there is flame in the unit.
could be a temperature sensor problem where it is sensing a temperature which could be correct but it is sending a wrong signal to the controller to turn off the flame and start another cycle.

Old ideal tybe b boiler piolet light working but burner not working


There are a couple of things this may be, so will need checking to rule them out as the cause.

There is a "hot wire" sensor in the pilot flame that allows the main gas valve to come on when it gets hot.

You will need to check the output from this when cold, and when hot. It's a safety feature to prevent gas escaping when not lit.

When cold, check there is continuity in the gas valve coils. A faulty gas valve will not open. This should only be replaced by registered trades people if it is faulty.

Check the blower motor coils in the same way for continuity. If they are defective, they will not allow power to the gas valve either - or it will cause overheating.

If everything checks out ok on the boiler side, try jumping the thermostat contacts, and see if it fires up. If it does - replace the thermostat.

Thanks for using Fixya!
