Customer Question

Good morning, i have an ideal ff240 classic boiler, it stopped working so called a plumber... they repaced fan assy yesterday (£250) went off saying was ok, but wheni came to start heating last night the boiler is struggling to stay alight and has to keep re ignighting constantly! Spoke to plumber. He said faulty fan has blown the control board and wants to charge me again!
Does this sound right or is it a possible scam? Please advise.

I have just been advised its the air pressure switch about another £100 to replace! I'm still suspicious.

Hi, unfortunately boiler repairs are something that takes years to get good at and there are just too few good boiler repair guys out there. Most likely it wasn't the fan but the air pressure switch all along. I'm only guessing as I wasn't there. I would let him replace it but if it doesn't work don't pay and ask him to put the old one back. Then get someone else, but get a recommendation
