    G'evening all,

    I'm stuck without central heating/hot water :(

    I have a Baxi Solo 3 PFL 40, and currently when turning central heating/hot water on I get

    Overheat Light: Off
    Boiler Light: On
    Fan Light: On
    Pilot Light: Off
    Burner Light: Off

    I can hear the fan, it sounds slightly odd but I'm not sure if there's something wrong with it.

    Any ideas what the problem might be?

    Cheers

    It is likely that the fan has seized, you will need a GS reg person to repair it for you.

    Apols, didn't read OP properly.

    Ignore my advice re fan, you will still need GS bod though.

    Thanks, I've left a message with a local GS reg person, just waiting for them to get back to me.

    Sounds like your fans bearing is dry, might get away with lubing it if not probably new fan time

    For anyone curious it turned out there was a hole/gap in one of the tubes connecting to the fan so it wasn't providing enough pressure, so it was just a matter of fixing that tube back on properly.

    Didn't need to replace any parts. The engineer who came out to fix it was really nice.

    Probably a bit of a waste of money overall though if I'd had a bit more patience and tried to check it out myself I may have spotted it.
