    When I woke this morning my boiler was not working. The pilot light is out and the pressure is at 0. I have tried the reset button but still no joy. We havent been using the heating recently (no need) only the hot water.

    Any ideas? I would like to try and fix this myself if possible?

    It wont work without pressure, there are 2 valves under the boiler for filling the system.

    ps it doesnt have a pilot, its automatic ignition.

    Pressure up to just under 2 now but no automatic ignition when I turn on the water or heating. Any advice appreciated.
