    These are very tricky boilers to establis the pilot. You need the extra long matches (at least 3 inches) to get near the thrermo couple. You will find the lighting aperture at the bottom right hand side towards the rear. The match needs to be inserted the full length at 45 degrees to the left...

    Is there any way to make a Drayton wireless Digistat RF1 go down to 5c ?
