Boiler help


Recommended Posts

Hello, My boiler (around five years old, Vaillant) has nothing on the LCD screen and won't work. It was ok this morning before I switched it off when it got too warm. I went to switch it on (it is never on a timer) and nada.

Any tips? Also, any reliable fixers-of-boilers who are, well, cheap and good?!

Thanks much

A couple of times when my boiler has gone dead it was because I had accidentally switched off the switch on the wall which is for the ignition (I think. Something electrical to do with the boiler, anyway).

I moved my bread bin and hadn't noticed it had knocked off the switch.

May be worth checking?

Likely it's the fuse. It may well be under warranty . Ours was ..but we forgot to register it at the beginning . Luckily managed to persuade them to come. Be aware though they will ask if it's been serviced regularly .. ours wasn't serviced annually. The plumber turned up and said they would normally need to see the service history in the log book but did us a favour and said if we couldn't 'find' the logbook he would do it anyway

    • Another recommendation for Sebastian at Bastek. He completely redid our family bathroom and transformed it into such a beautiful space. He is methodical in his work, really pays attention to detail and gives clear, considered advice.  As well as fitting the new bathroom suite so carefully, he did a fabulous job with the tiling, painting and finishes. An added bonus was the great communication and tidiness! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him and hope to involve him in future projects. He's on 07947 751333 and is really responsive on WhatsApp. 
    • thanks! i was thinking how to create the spiked things myself as have seen some online but expensive once you calculate how much you need!
    • Suggest you get come Correx eg from an old estate agents sign and cut it into 50mm wide strips. Then get some carpet tacks (15mm long)  Push the carpet tacks into and through the Correx at 25mm intervals so that the sharp ends stick upwards. Then attach the strip to the top of your fence where it is lowest. It  doesnt injure them. It just makes it uncomfortable for them and they soon learn.
    • At sue , do you think the people of southwark or even the UK on their own can solve all of the environmental problems in the world on our own ? And putting garden waste into a brown bin is going to solve the environmental  problems of the world ? I do my bit for the environment by doing my recycling and driving a electric van , southwark council are causing more pollution by having LTNs and causing the traffic jams and vehicles to idle, believe me iam all for the environment but I'm afraid what happens to the earth in 200 , 500 or one thousand years from now is not my concern , I need to makesure that I can keep myself and my family alive now the same as many other people who are finding it difficult to pay for food and pay their Bills,  so I'm afraid I will be putting my garden waste into MY green bin which I pay for via my council tax and save my £80 which would help pay for my electric of gas or food ..  Also heard that council may only be collecting green and blue bins once a month,  not confirmed but just hear say at the moment ...
