hi guys looking for advice on our boiler which has left us without hot water for 3 weeks now and the guy we have had out hasn't a clue what he is doing and i'm tired of waiting for him to figure out what the problem could be.

Three weeks ago our boiler (main combi he 24) flame failure light started flashing red every time we turned the hot tap on and has done it ever since although the heating has been working throughout.

anyone who is qualified to give us advice/help i would be very grateful .

If the guy you have working does not know then probably time to get somebody else in.

Long time ago, my heating stopped working, so I called out the expert. He quoted 250 to replace the extractor fan (Boiler wont work at all, if it cant extract gasses). I said I`ll think about it. I went out and bought a new fan for 150 from that place down Argyle Steet Industrial Estate. I fitted it easily and the heating then worked. I checked out the old fan, gave it a good clean and Wd40`d the workings and then oiled it and it worked like a dream... wasted 150. Ummmm.
Then it was my mission to never waste money again. Over time I have replaced the circuit board, the main valve, a red solonoid for the pilot light, a black solenoid for the main jet, the wire and ignition thingy for the spark. Learned to clean out the jet for the pilot light. Replaced the air pressure switch, which does something LOL . Replaced the plastic tubes which had cracked/perished to the pressure switch, I think that maybe it for now. Non of which cost me a fortune.
So, reading the manual could lead to fixing the boiler yourself if it does not entail gas connections.
Even so, you could look clever by telling the gas man what is wrong and not giving him the chance to over-charge maybe.
My boiler and I go together like cheese on toast :-)
