    Why in God's name would you get an electrician to look at a gas boiler?

    Get an RGI to look at it.

    your boiler is worth repairing they are very reliable old boilers, you need an RGI though and its unlikely to be the relay, they all show signs of scorching they arc as they operate

    As long as they keep making fans for these they're going to be around for a very long time!

    could be a long list of faults from

    Gas valve
    Fan
    Hoses
    APS
    PCB
    Stats
    Case seal
    Wire Harness

    best bet is to get a RGI to have a look

    I didn't criticise I asked a question. You didn't mention any body else being involved.

    So get off your high bloody horse; and learn to punctuate.

    Electrical parts such as the PCB and sensors within a boiler are still classed as gas work - an electrician will NOT be able to do anything.
    You need to get an RGI who can actually identify the fault and repair it - not someone who just swaps parts at random in the hope it will work.

    You won't get any advice on here about gas work either, since it is against the rules.

    More than likely the pump. The boiler is shutting off on reaching temp as there is no circulation.
    A decent RGI would be able to tell you this.
