hi, the 'ISAR he24' boiler is on the blink!! It is 3 yrs old and getting a corgi registered engineer has been a nightmare today. The boiler appears to have power to it but the control panel thingy is not lighting up. From googleing I believe this may be the PCB unit although I am not a boiler engineer!! I cant find anywhere that will give me a possible price for this to be bought/fitted and cannot get to speak to an engineer to give me a price. The only place is British Gas who charge by the amount of time the engineer is there!

Can anyone give me an approximate price for this so I know when im being ripped off or not.(If this does turn out to be the problem)

thankyou.

If I was you I would post your problem on the diynot forum for plumbing and central heating. You will get much more specialised answers there and they really know what they are doing.

I'm gas safe registered, but too far away I am afraid.

The problem with the pcb board is the prices are so different from boiler to boiler. Fitting one normally is a quick job though.

Well that does help Pinkle, thankyou, because british Gas have three tariffs for one off repairs, varying from £69 up to over £300 depending on how long it takes.

Thankyou RichP...ill take a look
