    "URGENT" Combo Boiler HELP.....

    Urgent
    I have a Alpha CB28, 5yrs old, not working since new year’s eve...
    No HW and CH is not working, A & B Neon light Flashing at same time...
    Plumper came around the other day and identified the fault due to the fan was not working, as no power is received from the PCB, using a tester screwdriver no power picked up from the fan slot in the PCB.
    Plumper told me PCB needs to be replaced, went out and got the price for us = 210 ex vat + £60 labour....Told him we will get back to him...

    Using the spec I found out it requires a 1.025576 PCB, (http://www. boilersparesdirect.co.uk/par…asp?id=73560), after digging deeper found this deal £150 cheaper. (http://eBay. co.uk/ALP…440?pt=UK_Home_Garden_Hearing_Cooling_Air&hash=item43a446e910#shId).

    I really need your help, after opening up the boiler to compare the two I found out it’s a bit different, i.e the black rectangle bar kinda thing on the PCB next to the red square thing on the eBay picture it say V1.00 and on the PCB in the boiler it says V2.01.

    Please can you tell if this one is suitable for my boiler….

    I would join homeserve gb or british gas wait a few day and say o no my boiler is not working.
    even cheaper than repair cost over a years cover.
    i have same boiler 10 old and only micro switch went wrong but homeserve sent an alpha boiler man
    who found prob and fixed in less than 5 mins.took him longer to fill out paper work.

    i would imagine you need to replace like for like, keep looking i'd say

    You sure your boiler hasn't shut off because of a blocked, previously frozen condensate pipe?

    we got a vokera boiler - the same happened to us 2 years ago, broke just befor xmas, we phone vokera direct and they said they would send somone out and they would fix it for a 1 off fee of £289 which included 1 years insurance , so we did this and they came out and replaced loads of parts and serviced it - its like a new boiler now, and then when the insurance came up for renewal we kept it going and pay £11 a month now
