I looked up this unit for you and found out it is a hot water system. She needs to get to the main gas valve to light the pilot. This unit has what is called a thermocouple on it that keeps the pilot on, even when the boiler shuts down. Its just a matter of lighting the pilot light. There should be a metal plate with the directions on it at the gas valve to lite it. You will have a knob, more then likely red or black in color on top of the valve. It will say on, off, and pilot. It should be in the on position now. Turn it to pilot. Have some matches with you and a flashlight if you can. You will need to look back into the burner area to where your pilot light will be. The thermocouple is a copper colored tubing that runs right back to the pilot, as it has to get hot from the pilot flame to work. To start, depending on how far back you have to reach with the match, you may need to use a piece of solid cardboard rolled up, a small piece to light it and reach in. Turn the knob to pilot. Now, push down on the knob and hold it down. This lets gas get back to the pilot, so you must keep it down and light it at the same time. Once it is lite, you have to hold it down for at least a minute. Slowly release it, very slow. The flame should then stay on. Once it is on, turn the gas knob to on. With the thermostat set to come on, it will fire up and heat the water. If the pilot will not stay lite after you hold it down for 1 minute, and keeps going out, the thermocouple will need to be replaced. It is the copper line that screws into the gas valve and goes back to the pilot. You can get them at any hardware store for around $6.00. Maybe you can help her install it. It is very simple to do. I believe the pilot just blew out and she will need to light it. Just follow what I have told you, and she will get it lite. Good Luck to you.

Hi I have a 24i worcester boiler I have drained the heating to do some work but I need the hot water to still work.I spoke to Bosch and they said I need to put a loop in.I am not a plumber but can get


Hi Steve, I am not a plumber but have done a lot of DIY on my own heating system with Worcester Bosch combi boiler! I believe that you can have the hot water on without the heating system filled, just turn all the settings as for summer use and the thermostat right down so the heating is forced to stay off!

How do i refill ny worcester junior 24i combi boiler? as i cannot get the pilot light to light


Two types dependent on age
Early - in the mains water inlet pipe there should be a service valve/tap which when turned on will refill [it is close to or part of the fill loop - a metal braided flexible pipe
Later - underneath there is a hole for a plastic tap [supplied with boiler] to be inserted [usually just right of center] Insert and turn 90 degrees then close to it another small knob or 2nd tap which when turned [same action as a basin tap] will refill. If the first tap is not inserted properly water will drip out past its seals
For both Refill to about 1.5 - 2 bar and turn off
For the later as above but also remove the 1st tap

Flashing red light on Worcester 24i junior combi boiler


Pressure is ok? at 1 bar or above
I think on this one there should be a reset button [red] on the left hand top of the casing - or lower the control panel [ phillips screw on each side] and the button is on the left of the base plate. Press this and try the heating.or hot tap
P.S. if you're on a prepayment meter check you have gas.

Worcester 24i combi when in shower hot water flicks on and off can hear gas igniting and extinguishing


This is lack of water flow through the diverter valve.

First have you got a good flow from any cold tap? If yes then see below

If I remember there is a pipe carrying cold mains crossing the lower front of the boiler with an in line filter usually clogged. Remove clean & replace
check also any filter in rising mains to boiler

another cause is the diverter valve itself - diaphram inside may be punctured/split
