We have a Drayton LP111 boiler/heating thermostat control unit

Customer Question

We have a Drayton LP111 boiler/heating thermostat control unit which has just gone dead today... No lights or writing and the boiler (Worcester 28CDI) has switched itself off and the pilot light is off. Any suggestions as to whether it's an electrical issue we can fix ourselves?

Are you able to check the fuse in the fused spur that supplies the timer?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Thanks for your reply. We've managed to open both the thermostat and the control panel but not sure what this fuse is meant to look like. Can you describe it?

IS there a fuse in the fused spur where the boiler gets its power from?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

We're unable to find the power source...thinking it might be under the floorboards. Are there any other options to try before we call the electrician ?! Thank you :)

This is not right, you need to be able to turn things off if there is a fire etc.
Is there a fused spur in the old airing cupboard controlling the boiler?
