If it is the pipe leading in or out, you can repair it yourself with a torch and solder, after draining the pipes and turning off the gas.
If it is the tank itself, you will need to replace it. The tanks cannot be reasonably repaired, so replacement is your only option. Legally, you must call a certified gas fitter (or plumber with a gas ticket) to handle the removal and replacement.
I suggest shopping around yourself for a heater as prices vary widely, and plumbers generally charge more than a home improvement store like Lowe's or Home Depot. Have the heater on hand when the plumber arrives and it will be a very quick job.

I HAVE WORCESTER 24SI BOILER , THE HEATING IS WORKING BUT NO HOT WATER THANKS.


Hi Mustafa, you are going to need a Gas Engineer to fix this one. It could either be the Hot water sensor or the flow switch that activates the water to come on. Good Luck.

My bolier gas supply is going on and off while the water is on


if the flame keeps shutting on and off while running hot water. it is more likely to be a failing thermal coupler, here is what a coupler does- it is always in the pilot light flame which acts like a thermometer. it goes from flame to the gas control, if it is failing or has failed, it will shut the gas off. as a safety precaution.

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.
