Sounds like a low water cutoff switch is stoping burner from lighting.

Check that you have at least 15psi of water pressure on the boiler guage.

Try to reset the cutoff switches.

Makes a clicking noise and humming when starts up

If your unit is fixed with a high speed compressor and in case you are not using a votage stablizer when ever there is a fluctuation in voltage there could be a click noise from the compressor. Do not frequently open your fridge and slowly the noise will vanish. It tells you that the unit is functioning just like our heart making thud thum thud noise when it functions and nothing to be worried about. It is normal.

I have a Certikin Genie swimming pool boiler that is showing the word GAS and i can smell it. What should i do?

You could try resetting this as it could be caused by several factors (blown heat exchanger being one as Karl mentioned).
Hve you tried resetting from in Service Mode ?

To get to Servce mode you need to go ino User Setup Mode first (turn off the boiler via the panel switch - then hold the Lock/Reset button whilst turning back on). Once in User Setup Mode if you rotate the thermostats all the way clockwise (it should display the software version) Then press and hold the Lock/Reset button for 3 seconds.
This should put you into service mode and it is now possible to change/reset some of the control parameters.
If you try resetting the error.

This issue may be caused if the Flue or water stat is tripped (in which case reset the stat). If th Fan resistor remains open in the circuit then you will need tsomeone out to investigate as that may cause the GAS error too.

COuldalso be the Valve coils are faulty in wich case they need replacing (agians I would get an engineer outto confirm and do that).

I'm suyou probably tried all this but just in case...

If the roblem is solved can you advise what fixed it ?
