Customer:

Hi , does the display light up at all ?

JACUSTOMER-q36k7pgd- :

No, It stopped Yesterday

JACUSTOMER-q36k7pgd- :

Please read my question

Customer:

Well , you said " the LCD display didn't show the pressure reading" that doesn't say that it doesn't show anything else.

JACUSTOMER-q36k7pgd- :

The display is blank

Customer:

Ok , either the PCB fuse has blown or the PCB is blown . by what you were describing the boiler was locking out and by turning off you were resetting, the component that was faulty has probably totally gone and short circuited , blowing the fuse or maybe the PCB . this will most likely be the pump or the fan . but first you will need to check the PCB fuse

JACUSTOMER-q36k7pgd- :

All circuit breaker fuses are undisturbed / ON.

Customer:

Its the fuse within the boiler itself that will need checking .

JACUSTOMER-q36k7pgd- :

I don't know how to do that.

Customer:

You would need a multimeter electrical tester.

JACUSTOMER-q36k7pgd- :

Ok let me do that,

I am waiting for the engineer who serviced my boiler in October.


Customer:

Ok ,so do you mean you are going to get someone to look at it?

JACUSTOMER-q36k7pgd- :

My husband is not home now, I have not done anything like this

Customer:

Iits not easy doing something technical that you haven't done before , but is there anything else, or will you get someone out to repair it?

JACUSTOMER-q36k7pgd- :

left messages for local engineer, no one has responded yet.

Customer:

the only thing I can advise right now, if we can't run through testing is to get a recommended boiler engineer . to be honest I think British gases 200 pound boiler repair , including all parts and labour and a guaranteed fix is quite good as if its not fixed properly they have to come back until it is . I hear so many people telling of bad engineers.

Customer:

I know its not cheap but some companies will charge more than that , especially as a fan can cost 140 pounds

JACUSTOMER-q36k7pgd- :

Thanks for your advice.

Customer:

Your welcome
