Whats wrong with my boiler?
Posted 12 August 2006 - 06:13 PM
My boiler a ideal response 120 combination boiler fitted with a digital timer.
Unlike many of the older boilers i have used this one doesnt have a visible pilot light and it auto ignites which im new to. If i get no hot water from the older boilers i used ill check the pilot light and 99% of the times its off so i re ignite it.
The new boiler instead has a light that lights up on boiler activity.
About a week ago i stopped getting hot water, this is not a problem yet but winter is comming. I dont know what caused it, it has been left alone so i havent been tampering with it. The water pressure in the boiler is nominal (1.5 mbr?). I cannot hear the thing hum when hot water is being used and the boiler light no longer lights. My gas applicances work perfectly. There is power to the thing because the power light is lit.
My simple understanding of this thing, somthings wrong.

So, determine how your boiler works and see what is not happening. I find that the most common problem is a dirty flame sensor in models so equipped. They can be easily cleaned with clean emery cloth intended for use on metal, don't use sandpaper meant for wood.

mentions that Ideal had put out some kind of modification for the thermostat on that boiler). You might want to contact the manufacturer and see if you have a known issue that there is a recall for.
