Hi everyone,
This is my first post on here, and, I`m sorry to say, I could do with some help. icon_cry.gif

I have a Worcester Bosch Greenstar 35 CDi boiler, which is just over 2 years old, so it`s just out of warranty. icon_evil.gif

Yesterday, the fault code C6 appeared on the display and the boiler failed to light.
The manual gives "Fan speed too low" as the cause of the fault.
As my job is in electrical fault finding, I`ve checked the fan and found that it`s not running at all, so ( I think) either the fan or the control board has packed up.
I`ve priced both componenets at around 200 (ouch).

Has anyone any experience with this problem? Is it a common fault on this type of boiler?
Are ther any other possible causes of this fault?
Do Worcester Bosch have a fixed cost repair service?
Will Worcester Bosch listen to any complaints as the boiler is only just out of warranty?

Sorry for all the questions but I hope someone can help.

Thanks for your help Gremlin, it`s very much appreciated! icon_biggrin.gif

185 is also the cost of a new fan, which I was going to fit myself.
The problem with that is that the gas pipe needs to be removed to take the old fan out and install a new one, so it looks like WB will be getting the job.
