SOURCE: No heat!

I took your advice and got someone in this afternoon. He replaced the pump there and then and all is working well again. He charged £135 for the pump plus labour. It was the best price I could get after ringing around a few other companies. I wish I was a plumber and could charge prices like that!
Thanks a lot for your help.

SOURCE: when the gas boiler comes

This is caused by a weak flame sensing device. As main burner ignitin occurs this creates a roll out condition , when this condition occurs it derives oxygen from the pilot light thus reducing flame signal and causing the pilot to drop off momentarily.

SOURCE: Gas log will not stay lit for more than 5 minutes

after you relight have you tried to leave the gas valve on pilot for 10 to 15 minutes so the themolpile warms up enough to send mil-volt signal. you also have a thermocouple that senses flam so if the flame is not hitting that just wright it will shut off. Is this fire place ran off a thermostat or a on off switch. If you are running off a thermostat then i would try to find on/off switch and try that. You might have to change pilot assembly out.If you do this and don't have manual i would take a picture of the log set up so you put it back together. Make sure all connections are tight when you go back together

My boiler dosent come on i have no hot water but when i turn the heating on boiler works but still no hot water what should i do


Hot water is gravity fed through your pipes. When you turn the faucet on the water will flow through the pipes. If your hot water heater is natural gas driven relight the pilot. Same if oil fueled. If electrical, check fuse to see if it has blown or the circuit breaker has tripped. If either has tripped, replace it and if it blows again the heater has a serious failure, you might need to buy a new one. If pilot won't light on gas unit, try relighting after 5 minutes, could be a bad thermocouple.

I had the same problem. There's another clear rubber pipe underneath, that runs from the front right to a pump in the middle. I had to pull it off and dry it with a hairdryer before mine would light properly. Blast into the hole the pipe came off too to dry the sensor if there is one.

The by pass pipe may be limed up. This apparently causes a reduced flow which will stop the heating side of the thing working. Call out Worcester Bosch engineer. It costs £210 including VAT and most parts and they almost guarantee to get it working.

When the gas boiler comes on the pilot light goes out after about 60 seconds then reignites itself a few minutes later.


This is caused by a weak flame sensing device. As main burner ignitin occurs this creates a roll out condition , when this condition occurs it derives oxygen from the pilot light thus reducing flame signal and causing the pilot to drop off momentarily.

No heat!


Ger, do you get your hot water off the same boiler and it that working alright? How many zones and are they controled by zone valves (little boxes mounted on the pipes) or circulators (small pumps)?

Boiling water sounds can indicate hard water deposits in the boiler or that your aquastat is set too high allowing the water to heat up higher than it should. Check your boiler guage and let me know what temperature you are recording. Get back to me with the answers to my questions, we'll figure it out.
