Does it have a little red button on the right hand side of the gas valve? if so you must put the gas valve button in the pilot positon and push it down and hold it, then click the red button {push it down} it will click and look at it keep clicking while holding down the button on the gas valve eventually when the gas gets thru it will light could take several clicks of the ignitor

Sime boiler pilot light


Sounds like an old boiler. It is not on timer and has to be lit manually. Push in the gas button and hold and push the sprung ingnition button to greate spark. Continue to hold in gas button 1-2 mins and release. The pilot light should then stay on. The flame will have heated the sensor in the combustion chamber and the boiler thinks that there is a flame and will allow the main gas jets to light when demanded . If the flame does not stay on clean the sensor prongs with emery cloth but do wait until they are cooled. You have open up the combustion chamber for access
The 1-2 mins above varies

I can only get hot water when i turn the heating on! the boiler is a sime super 90 plus (so it says on the front). i have turned all the radiators in the house off, am i causing damage doing this?


It sounds like you have a bad aquastat, if you have steam heat, and you have closed off the radiators, it will not cause a problem, it will just shut off when you build a couple psi of pressure. I would not recommend the same on a hot water boiler, because it could cause problems if you start making steam. Hope this helps.

Pilot light on boiler


The plumbers repair should be guaranteed, give him a call back.
It sounds to me that the pilot flame needs to be adjusted or the thermocouple is not aligned properly or there is a draft that is blowing out the pilot.
Good luck...
