    Managed to run out of oil and since then the boiler locks out. I assume this is because there is an airlock now in the system which needs to be bled but I just cant work out where the bleedscrew is. Can anyone help please

    Bleed the oil through or you'll be needing a new fuel pump. The bleed screw is on the front of the pump it's got a screw with a 4 mm Allen hole for a 4 mm alley key loosen it till it's 1/2 way out get a soak cloth and start the boiler when the air bubbles stop it's done mop up tighten screw and you're done.Bob
