A, If it is your boiler, check as best you can that there is nothing obstructing the flue on the exterior of the building,if it looks ok, call the gasboard, it's a free call, they can advise best, on next step.
B, If you rent, contact your landlord asap, and have them deal with it as a matter of importance, if they don't , call the gasboard.
If you are not a Corgi registered engineer, (and I presume you arn't as you are posting this), it's illegal to even remove the cover from a boiler, so there isn't much the average person can do.
Peace of mind cost very little, just a phone call.

It could be the heat exchanger overheating or a problem with the chimney. Both require that a qualified service tech evaluate the problem because both can cause carbon monoxide to be released into the living area. THIS NEEDS IMMEDIATE ATTENTION!!!!!!!!!!!!

Boiler won't fire even though the pilot is lit


Check if the ignition plug works. Upon putting your boiler on, a spark will normally trigger the
the firing. Then, check the ignition transformer if it works. Check the secondary voltage which is between 15000 to 20000 volts to trigger the ignition plug and the boiler to fire. If no spark,
have your ignition transformer replaced to make it work.

Vaillant combi boiler problem


when the tap is turned on and the water light on the boiler doesn't this means the diverter valve is not operating it could be down to low water pressure in the house this can be checked at the cold tap in the kitchen. if there is plenty of pressure then it could be the diagphram in the diverter valve is worn or split. the diagphram is only a few pounds but it depends on the engineer you get as to how much money he wants to fit it.
the egg timer symbol (or two pyramids together) is an ignition indicator turn off and on again to see if it will fire with the tap running. reset the boiler with the lower right hand control knob.
