combi boiler

make sure your system just dont need repressurizing if its a combi boiler.mine packed up a while ago and the plumber just come around and pressured up the boiler and it started straight back up.a lesson learned!

Got the Ravenheat 85 from B&Q to replace my dead myson cheap and good, had to fart around with the plumbing to make it fit tho as the outlets/inlets are in diff places.

Yer maw!!!
What mak/model of boiler you got mate?
I wouldnt buy one form B&Q. Whereabouts you live?

And I wouldn't recommend fititng yourself, gas is dodgy - u need to be corgi registered and have completed CH courses to even take one off a wall. It can be done, but theres soundness tests etc. which can prove life-saving!!!

Not far from you
if its the thermo coupling m8 its pretty easy to fix no gas work is involved all the thermo does is the flame wams it up the pilot light i mean and it then senses the temp and keeps the pilot light alight you should be able to get one for under 20 quid they do do a universal one from any good plumbing centre m8
