You've done far more to your boiler than you're legally allowed to do, and you may be putting yourself and your family at considerable risk of death. You need to call a boiler engineer to sort your problem, which could be any of a number of things

Corgi reg engineers? Corgi disappeared nearly four years ago, it's Gas Safe now...

He can do whatever he likes in his own house legally.As long as he feels he is competent to do so.
Lay off the 'fear factor' Muggy.

Too many of you plumbers' like to get your easy work off fear factor .
If plumbers were reasonable people- many more customers would come their way .

PP you truly are an idiot.

It has nothing to do with him FEELING competent. He HAS to be competent. The only way to prove that is to hold a valid ACS certification.

We had that problem on our Ideal logic boiler & replacing the secondary heat exchanger cured the problem. (By a gas safe eng. by the way).

No, not as long as he feels he is competent to do so, the correct phrase is simply 'as long as he is competent to do so', whether he thinks he is or not is irrelevant. As he clearly doesn't know what he is doing, he is not competent, and therefore can't even do anything in his own home

I wasn't referring to the temperature of the water, more the risk of the products of combustion (flue gases) being released into the room. Also, please learn to use some punctuation, your post is really rather difficult to read.
