Plumbers_Mate : Do you have reset button to press and hold for over 3 seconds?
JACUSTOMER-vwtllsse- :

don't think so - all it's got, is a power on/off button that does not even switch it on.

Plumbers_Mate : Do you have any lights showing when turned on?
JACUSTOMER-vwtllsse- :

no lights showing - looks really dead - was just wondering, if it has any internal fuse - but think I'll have to call in maintenance

Plumbers_Mate : There will be 2 on the PCB, if the main one blows then the boiler will appear dead even when power is applied.
Plumbers_Mate : if this is the case then you will have to call an engineer to repair this.
