    I have just fitted a new fan to my Baxi Solo 3 70PF. That now works OK, but the burner (and indicator light) switch on and off at about 3 second intervals. Could this be a faulty pressure switch? I have fitted a new pair of sensor tubes which don't have any kinks in them.

    Any other suggestions gratefully received.

    I have just removed the combustion box door to test the pressure switch and found that the burner no longer switches on and off at 3 second intervals until I put the door back on??

    I do love the comments..."Problem solved / fixed" with no explanation how.

    The "door".... a well known RGI term. He he!

    It seems Legionalla has been sprayed with water (like the gremlin did) and now has hundreds of mini 'legions' posting rubbish.
