JACUSTOMER-id8hjlt0- :

but it was fireing up yesterday fine just no hot water hence new diaphram &micro switch`s

XXXXX XXXXX : When you run the hot tap, do you get a click and the boiler tried to fire?
Customer:

is there any thing i can do , or is it a expert i need ,

Customer:

no nothing , when i reset it takes a few second the the light comes on for flame failure

XXXXX XXXXX : It must know the tap is running or it would not attempt to start, and get flame failure
XXXXX XXXXX : i think you need someone to watch it while trying to fire and see how far it gets through the ignition sequence and take it from there
Customer:

have done that , power on light on all the time .. then after a few sconds the flame failure light comes on .. no clicking or noise at all

XXXXX XXXXX : No attempt to start, could be a faulty relay on the PCB as the boiler is actually trying to light otherwise you would not get the flame failure light.
XXXXX XXXXX : are you sure the fan is not running?
Customer:

yes therer is no sound of anything at all . how hard is it to fit a pcb board ,

Customer:

i have got a price of £112 for a new one is that good & should i get it

XXXXX XXXXX : Just unplug all the connectors and disconnect the power, quite simple with everything off
Customer:

ok going to order it , can i contact you if its not that , it may take a couple of days to get ,its bloody getting cold in the house now thanks for your help

XXXXX XXXXX : No problem just come back to me when it is done
Customer:

cheers

XXXXX XXXXX : Ok
Customer:
