Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hi . what model is your valiant combined?
F28 is a failure to start after attempts at ignition. Change the spark probe and the flame rectification( detection ) probe. This may come as one unit or separates dependingvon your model . for f54 I will need the model for
Actually f54 is also an ignition , failure to start error code. . change the probes as stated earlier
How do I change the spark probe? Looks like I will need an gas registered engineer.
Looks like I should not really change the ignition probe myself. Can I ask my handyman to do it (british law)?
You are not touching the gas parts, so it can be argued that it can be changed by a competent person . a couple of years ago it was deemed that electricians could repair electrical faults on boilers. Its easy enough to change. A couple of screws that hold them in and wiring that does beck to the PCB and plugs in
So the electrician should be able to change it?
Yes ,if he feels confident to do it .
I should obviously pay you as i think your advise was spot on, but since i cannot fix it myself i think £10 is a more fair price.
You mean dollars as its paid in dollars. That's fine , thank you . all the best
