Customer Question

Hiya............I'm dealing with a Tempra 24 which fires for 5 seconds then shuts down completely and requires manually resetting and the problem resumes............no shut down warning light illuminates. Possibly a thermostat defect ? Obviously I'm reluctant to go to the expensive PCB replacement unless no option. Your help would be appreciated.

Hello My name is Ian ~ I am not on the site constantly so please be patient whilst waiting for responses to you queries ~ after start up does the fan come on?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Hi Ian..........I presumed I was involved with a Ferroli Tempra 24 gas boiler Gas Safe registered engineer familiar with boiler troubleshooting....as a home appliance engineer I'm not sure you're the right person ???

Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 2 years ago.

That is fine, I will happily opt out if you wish to speak to someone else ~ kindly note that I am also a HVAC engineer but not specific to Ferroli. Have a great day and good luck with your question.

Hi again Ian.......I really need to connect to a Ferrolli gas boiler engineer who has much experience with the Tempra 24 troubleshooting/diagnostic fault finding where I as an installer have limitations in this area. I am obviously reluctant to part with £27 unless I liase with the right man.

Thanks

Norman

Norman ~ no problems I'm sure we will have one on here who works directly for Ferrolli but you may have to wait whilst they log on.

Hi. If the boiler has fired this proves the fan , air pressure switch . it will most likely be the flow thermostat or the flame recognition probe , but as you are not getting a fault code it will most likely be the flow thermostat .if its a thermistor this can be tested on ohms with a multimeter, it will be within a certain range at a certain temp . but you should get a change with temp change. I have worked for British gas as a boiler breakdown engineer , plus others
