I have a ten year old Ideal C24/28 combi boiler, which was serviced three months ago. It has become a hit and miss affair in the last few days in that, it fires up on time in the morning, but shuts down after half an hour or so, then comes back to life again, times varying from one to four hours. Can you give me some guidance. I can't afford a new boiler, 'pension won't allow it'. Please give me some hope. Yours sincerely ***** ***** McKean.
When the boiler is working, it as normal then shuts off for various times, no heat and sometimes no hot water.
I presume so, via the digital timer. There is no seperate thermostat other than the boiler, the hall radiator cannot be shut off.
There is NO room thermostst anywhere in the house, the only thermoststs are in the boiler or on all but one radiarors.
When I switch onthe circulating pump starts, I think the gas valve opens, but there is no spark to ignite the gas. the domestic hot water is intermittent, even when the heating is off.
I have just tried the manual start, this time the boiler has fired and everythin

I have just tried the manual start up, the boiler has fired and the heating is on, but for how long I don't know, this is the problem.
I called my heating engineer last Friday afternoon and left a message on the answer phone, have not heard from him yet, after reading your last post, I am wondering if perhaps there is a dry joint, which is making a connection when said joint is cold, and then breaks the connection when hot. Does this seem a possible answer to the problem?
Okay, perhaps the engineer will return my call in the morning, thanks for your advise, we will have to rely on fan heater to suffice until then.
