My maxol he 28 gas boiler goes then shuts off,

This answer was rated:

My maxol he 28 gas boiler goes for 15minutes then shuts off, then after pressing the reset button it will go again after half an hour.
***** ***** : Is there anything different on the boiler display or lights?

Yes number 4 but mostly number 5 comes up. A plumber has cleaned electrodes and adjusted the pressure. The hot water is the same.Cant help feeling the plumber has given up on it. He came back did a few things still not going properly.

***** ***** : It is failing at ignition stage
***** ***** : You should clean and/or replace the electrodes but ensure you change the ignition lead

The electrodes have been replaced but not the ignition lead. Would that make the difference


if the lead was replaced

***** ***** : If it is breaking down then you will not get all the power and a bright white hot spark when the unit is igniting.
