Just got back from holiday to find freezer defrosted and then following day boiler is dead as door knob.
Had it fitted 2 and half years ago under government scheme warm front, they micky mouse serviced it for two years then left us to it, it has been giving intermittent hot water for a few weeks and rads were on full time so turned them off from rad taps, Ran warm front and i have grant left to get repair done but i will have to wait 6 months before we get any service, this is not practical due to fact we dont have any hot water and in few months will need heating on again.
I found out it is the PCB board gone down and after reading some reviews find the ideal isar boiler range to be an absolute pile of junk and everyone says its not worth throwing money at it.
Since living in my home we have only had the last 2 yrs problem free out of 12 yrs residence and i dont believe im back here again.
Just need a good boiler with good warranty.
Now i can get a loan to have a new one fitted but im getting so many different views on replacement boiler that im a spin with the info.
Been told worcester bosch greenstar is good, then was told they have lots of problems and the parts are super expensive.
Was advised to get a potterton performa but cant find any reviews on it really and the last one before the current was a potterton and gave nowt but problems every year. so i am dubious, although looking at the potterton site the gold seris boiler looks good and is the only SEDBUK A rated one stocked by them.
Then some say Valliant but which one? they are all really expensive! are they any more reliable than worchester?
Can anyone also recommend a fitter who is reasonable in south east kent area, we all really want some hot water back.
thanks for any recommendations/advice/reviews.
