If you can't afford 60p/min for tech support you cant afford for an engineer to come round and fix it then!! :rolleyes:

Between 1848hrs and 1902hrs you had an engineer in to diagnose the fault?

That seems difficult to believe particularly when you dont like spending 60p/min to call their technical advice.

All they can give is generalised advice on what the fault might be. The only way to positively identify the fault is in front of it and making tests.

So what did this engineer say was the problem and what did you pay him?

We charge £84 to diagnose faults! What do you think about that if 60p is a lot of money?

If he is engaged to diagnose the fault and cannot do that then he should not be paid ANYTHING!

These are perfectly respectable boilers and totally repairable.

The only thing that is crap is those installers who fit them without cleaning the system. We charge £840 to install but clean and fully guarantee our installation. Some of these crap installers fit them for £100 and then the owners wonder why they constantly need the plate heat exchangers cleaning or replacing.
