I need help. I'm in the stickiest situation since Sticky the stick insect got stuck on a sticky bun. A long shot if anyone has any ideas.......
My central heating has packed up, or at least I think it has. Me and the good lady spent last night on the sofa with jumpers on, sitting under a duvet trying to keep warm because the heating wouldn't come on. The water is still hot and both of managed to get a shower this morning with no problems.
I've reset the timers and clocks and everything that I need to according to the booklets and tried every combination of buttons I can think of but I'm running out of patience. Last night the burner light wouldn't come on and the instructions said that the boiler would keep trying until the lock out light would come on and I'd have to retry. Only the lock out light wouldn't even come on.
This morning I tried again and the burner light came on after about 2 minutes of my girlfriend having a shower but the heating wouldn't come on. The burner light turned off again until I got a shower but again no heat through the radiators. Then I eventually managed to get the burner light on by clicking the button on and off a few times before it went dead again a few minutes later, with no heat having come out.
I suppose I'm resigned to having to call someone out to take a look at it but sometimes it can be the most stupid thing that's wrong and I don't particularly need being charged a hefty whack just a few days before Christmas.
If anybody has any suggestions they're greatly appreciated. By the way the boiler is a Powermax. Or No-Powermax at the minute!
