Customer Question

Have a Worcester Greenstar HeatSlave 25/32 oil combi boiler. No problems with water or heating until this morning. With heat turned on, boiler is firing for about 2 seconds and then stopping; starts again 10 seconds later for 2 seconds, etc. Lock Out is not turned on; pressure seems to be adequate.

Is the boiler working for hot water?

Does the circulation pump seem to be working

Ok if hot water is fine there is nothing wrong with burner.

The most common culprit will be the three port valve.. It could be a normal looking motorised head on it or a clip on one. Lift the head off the valve and check it's moving ok
