This is dangerous condition. Call service technician immediately, and they might put the unit out of commission until repairs are made.

Locate manufacturer's website, and call manufacturer to get name of local technician qualified to work on unit, and this will get the unit back into working service quicker.

Soot means burner is not burning all the fuel, and venting is slowed.
Possibility unburned gas is entering flueway, and could cause explosion.
Clean burner parts, check vent draft, check gas pressure.
Catch unit up on required yearly maintenance.

    Yeah, it really sounds like you need boiler repair. In Syracuse UT, keeping our boilers in working condition is incredibly important come winter. You wouldn't believe how cold it gets here sometimes.

After moving my gas meter from inside the home to outside and having a semi concealed meter connected we cant get the combi boiler to work properly we can get hot water and have the gas fire on but


your boiler needs a minimum gas pressure of 16 mb to light successfully. if your gas pipe has been extended it has to be able to flow enough gas. it may need upgrading to 28mm for even as little as a metre from the gas meter. if your central heating works ok when the fire is off then this is your problem

Boiler Venting.


There cannot be controlled venting of the flue , the products of combustion must have free flow to escape , The heat exchanger is above the burner which heats the water if you thinks this is high then maybe you a pressure problem . Or contact the makes tech line and ask them what they think the consumption might be for you heater .You may find this on google

The hot water and central heating wont work together


what size of gas line is going into boiler and water heater? is it black iron ? natural gas or propane? have you checked gas pressure at water heater and furnace ? if they work fine individually then you have a problem with incoming gas pressure. Call gas company and ask them if they would come out and check gas pressure.
