If you wiggle the magnetic stopper does it start and stop or there is no reaction at all? No humming?

What's the magnetic stopper

Sorry I typed the right inquiry into the wrong box. That was meant for another question. Sorry for the confusion. What kind of noise is made when turning on the water? Does the water pressure from the hot taps seem to be lower than the cold? Is the water hot then cold or just cold?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I believe the pilot light is not on. The boiler sounds as if it's on when you turn the water on, but nothing happens
Expert:  canuck the pro replied 2 years ago.
What model boiler is it? Are you sure it has a standing pilot or does it have electronic ignition?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I've had it fixed. No help required
