Scatmanjohn you are the man! After experiencing the F5 fault I had a good look on the net and you were the only one with an answer, if I'd of taken earlier advise I'd just of got ripped off by a plumber, thanks for solving a headache and warming up me house again.

two questions from a newbie:

1. anyone know what the error code F4 indicates on the (Scottish Gas) Glowworm 330 boiler?

2. any pointers to an online manual for this boiler.

we have just noticed that the CH did not come on this evening and hence the interest in the F4.

thanks
