Customer:

Hi . it could be a couple of things

Customer:

Knowing the biasi though it sounds like the thermistors( temperature sensors ) have failed .probably the heating one .

Customer:

They are about 30 pounds each and can be tested with a multimeter on ohms

Customer:

Does the ignition fire up for a few seconds?

Customer:

Things to check . does the boiler fire? Are you getting any heat , feel the pipes at the boiler .can you hear sparking, ie trying to light ,should be able to hear this

JACUSTOMER-mfcr1whd- :

Yes ignition fires up for a few seconds

JACUSTOMER-mfcr1whd- :

the radiator pipes gey tepidly warm as its igniting then cuttin out and repeating this process

Customer:

Hi . pretty sure its going to be the thermistors . pretty easy to change once the waters isolated . shouldn't be an expensive job . you could do it yourself

JACUSTOMER-mfcr1whd- :

Customer:
