Ariston Microgenus 27mffi combi boiler

My boiler has an intermittent fault. The hot water and heating just stops working for no apparent reason then after either a few hours or days it starts again. I've contacted an engineer but by the time they can come to look for the fault, the boiler is working again and they said if it's working they wouldn't be able to find the fault! I've contacted Ariston but they told me to call out an engineer. I'm getting very frustrated with this. There are no warning lights when the fault happens and I've looked through the manual to try and get some idea. Do you think it could be the pump getting stuck or do you have any other ideas? Thank you for your help.

    I have an Ariston Microgenus 27 mffi combi boiler with the intermittent problem mentioned by others.
    16 months ago I had a new pcb, 2 new thermistors and a new air pressure switch fitted ( in fact 3 pcbs as 2 failed immediately ! ).
    Fine until a month ago when the intermittent working/not working started again, sometimes heating, sometimes water, sometimes neither and sometimes both.
    I asked a different Corgi plumber to check. He contacted Ariston's tech depatment who told him to replace the pcb, thermistors and air pressure switch.
    Surely new replacement parts should last longer than 16 months ! However, Ariston churned out the mantra that their product has a 2 year guarantee. I argued that all the replaced parts were their products.
    Isn't thei a legal answer to this clearly flawed product ?
    Clearly their is

Im an engineer and recently had exactly the same thing with this ariston boiler, i found out it was the the 'air pressure switch', this is a switch which is part of the ignition, it works in conjuction with the fan. when the boiler fires up the air pressure switch makes, if its faulty it can break the circuit mid flow and cause the burner to shut down therefore giving intermittent hot water and heating, theres a possibility that the aps tubes may be damaged as well so ensure they'e condition is good. hope this helps you

Are there different types of toddler beds or a standard type in different styles?

There are quite a few varying types of toddler beds in the market. The first kind I will mention is a convertible crib. The great thing about a convertible crib is that it will last much longer. Some parents also find that a convertible crib eases the transition phase. Next there is the "captain bed" also known as a storage bed. This bed has built-in compartments everywhere - under the bed frame, in the footboards, even in the headboards. There are other types of toddler beds such as loft toddler beds, futon toddler beds, and platform toddler beds; however I think they are less popular and ultimately less safe for your toddler.

What do you mean by "you haven't got it". When is your period due?

I'm afraid you can't really go by "signs", as every woman is different. Some have typical symptoms and others have none. The best way to find out if you may be pregnant is to obviously take a pregnancy test. You can take an early detection pregnancy test such as First Response.
