There are a couple of things this may be, so will need checking to rule them out as the cause.

There is a "hot wire" sensor in the pilot flame that allows the main gas valve to come on when it gets hot.

You will need to check the output from this when cold, and when hot. It's a safety feature to prevent gas escaping when not lit.

When cold, check there is continuity in the gas valve coils. A faulty gas valve will not open. This should only be replaced by registered trades people if it is faulty.

Check the blower motor coils in the same way for continuity. If they are defective, they will not allow power to the gas valve either - or it will cause overheating.

If everything checks out ok on the boiler side, try jumping the thermostat contacts, and see if it fires up. If it does - replace the thermostat.

Thanks for using Fixya!

If this an older style boiler remove thermostatwires
at boiler terminal board and put jumper between R and W, if boiler starts you have bad thermostat.

If it does not come on then it appers that you have
a problem with the spark ignition or glow coil is
bad

Gas boiler doesnt ignite


Clean the pilot assembly and replace the thermocouple. I suspect that the thermocouple that is installed now is getting tired and is failing. While you do that, clean any debris off the burner(s) and look for any sensors that may need a cleaning as well. You could have a bad connection on the gas valve so check all wire connections for corrosion and clean. Yes the gas valve could be bad not allowing the main burner to ignite but check everything else first.

How flem sensor works in furness


After you hearthe click from the ignitor your piolet will light. the flame sensor (mounted next to the piolet (tip in the flame) ) will sence the heat from the piolet sending a milivolt siginal back to the ignation board. once the board knows there is a piolet and the system is safe the main valve will open igniting the burner trays.
