    Heya guys, im hoping this is the right place, and am praying you can help me!

    The other day a plumber came round to change some connections on the radiators, bled them and ever since we have had no heating. Last time the boiler went down it took our landlords 2 months to fix it, and with it now being winter i decided to see if we can simply sort this ourselves!

    Thanks so much in advance for any help provided!

    Is it the boiler not firing up?
    As changing connections on heating system it likely the plumber may have drained the heating system, on filling and venting rads it does not mean all air has been removed from pipework. The plumber may need to return and sort the problem. Some system are a nightmare to remove of air.

    Would it involve just bleeding the radiators again effectively? I think that's something I would be comfortable with if so, just don't know which tool I need to unlock them haha

    ok ...so if not even attempting to fire up you have an electrical fault - if motor turns but does not fire it's a fault with oil supply or summat similar
