Customer Question

hi, my gas boiler Britony combi se, has error codes 70 and 80 displaying.
And the no flame light is on, I clicked the reset switch a couple of times and it did work again for about an hour and switched off again displaying the same 70 and 80 flasing.
Any suggestions? I looked online and some recommend that the pcb is gone, but I think maybe the ignitor electrode is gone?
But if it is already running would it stop if the spark stopped working?

Hi I am sorry to hear that, I am Tech Michael
I will be helping you today.
Please be patient as these are technical issues and may take a bit of conversation to get the issue narrowed down and solved.
How long has it been since the unit has been serviced?
Thank you

Thanks John, this doesn't sound like the control board and that is a good thing as its expensive. I think all this unit needs is professional cleaning and possible replacement of the electrodes;-)
Not a very expensive service at all, just check the local heating service companies for the best price;-)
Please rate kindly before closing this page I will still be here for you and you can contact me anytime
simply by replying to this message at no additional cost;-)
Thank you John and have a great day!
