    opening the combustion chamber is not something that a DIYer should be doing.

    It would have been more cost effective to have called an RGI to properly diagnose the actual fault!

    Gets expensive when you don't diagnose correctly and chuck parts at it in a vain hope of fixing it. :rolleyes:

    I've got one too ;)

    But for know settle with calling an RGI - you never know they might be able to fix the boiler for you with a single spare part.
