Hi , does the fan run ? Can you hear the fan start? The boiler won't fire until the fan runs, as this then operates the air pressure switch which then tells the boiler to figure.
If the fan is running then most likely the air pressure switch is faulty and needs replacing .
If you can't hear the fan run then it is most likely dead and will need replacing
