    Double check your central heating control.

    S30 means that no demand from external controls.

    What programmer is it?

    The 615 is a heat only boiler.

    These are ( normally ) installed with a programmer where you can set the times for heating and hot water.

    That may need the power disconnecting for a minute as they sometimes get upset when they suddenly lose power.

    I went to a boiler repair on monday and whenb I arrived there was a power cut but it came back on before I had finished.
