    Help please, after trying to discourage my customer from moving this old boiler, I dutifully did and once she fired back up, the burner lit for about five seconds then out and the flame flashing indicator starts flashing... is this a problem with something I may have done or the pressure switch, gas valve... ???
    Cheers in advance

    Hi guys, yes I’m gas safe registered, I’ve read a number of your posts so know you’re both very knowledgeable.
    I checked the gas supply, that the fan works, the pump runs, the system pressure is 1.5 bar, the condensate trap and pipe isn’t blocked..
    what am I missing
    Cheers

    What comes after the fan in the ignition sequence

    The fan proves the differential switch and then ignition , I guess the boiler is staying in the low burner state and the gas valve is not opening fully... flame rectification??

    Did wonder if that might be it last night, maybe just a case of checking it’s not got dirty and needs a wipe...
