    Hi,
    I have the Ariston Microgenus 23 boiler which is used for central heating and the hot water. The problem is the pilot light keeps going out resulting in no hot water. It seems to be happening more lately and none of the three engineers that have been out to look at it have any idea why it is happening and are unable to replicate the error. The first call to the manufacturer suggested it was the circuit board, the second call suggested it might be the water pressure. I have had the following replaced without any success.
    Heat Exchanger
    Limescale Inhibitor
    Corrosion Inhibitor

    Belwo are the time recently when the boiler needs resetting -
    26.03.12 6.30am twice/ 11am once
    27.03.12 6.30am once/ 9pm twice
    28.03.12 6.30am twice
    29.03.12 6.45am once/ 9pm once
    30.03.12 6.40am twice/ 11am once
    31.03.12 7.00pm once
    01.04.12 3 times


    If anyone has any ideas then this would be helpful.


    Thanks

    first thing to check is system pressure, should be 1 to 1ยท5 when cold.
