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 ?

Thanks

Sounds like you have 2 seperate problems here. The fault code GAS means that the boiler has failed to ignite. There could be various reasons for this so you really need to have it tested. Sometimes a leaking heat exchanger will cause this fault code to come up as well. A quick test to see if the heat exchanger is leaking internally is to remove the condense pipe under the heat exchanger when the pool pump is running but the boiler off. If there is water running out of it, then it is probably leaking.

The fault code gas does not have anything to do with a gas leak or a smell of gas. If there is a smell of gas, then do not use the heater untill it is checked by a Corgi registered engineer. If your boiler has a serial number which starts with 06 or 07 then you should contact Certikin as there is a recall on the gas isolation **** which could be the reason for the smell of gas. Alternatively you can contact ourselves at Kaltech as we are carrying out the recall.

We have just bought a brand new 480cd gas rayburn boiler/cooker and it is making a very loud constant whistling noise. When the cooker part only is on there is no noise but just when boiler is going


This can be caused by several things. Incorrect Gas to Air mixture in the burner air intake valve. . Debris in the gas line to the boiler. To high a gas pressure. Depending on whether you installed this unit or not, will determine if you should try to repair or troubleshoot these issues. If it was professionally installed call the company that installed it. The only one you can't troubleshoot is the gas pressure. That needs to be done by a certified gas technician.

Hope this helps steer you in the right direction to solving the problem.

Showing F1 on display boiler makes a thudding noise then goes to F1 mode. Smell of gas.


Hello
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.

What do i need to do for a convair classic portable cooler, to care for/service it? (as it is smelling at the moment!) Convair Classic M800CAUS; Product no. 007410


we always used 1 baby bottle steralising tablet to sterlise them , best to do this outside to avoid the chlorine /swimming pool smell in the house
then flush all the solution away and replace with fresh water ( the solution is quite corrosive and cause rust ) , also check your pads for dust/limescale , you may well need to replace these
