    The boiler fires up for 30 seconds then shuts down, slight heat coming along primary flow.

    Power at wiring centre good, when calling for heat/HW.
    Pump impellor spinning nicely.

    I flushed out the system, no obvious blockages.

    Hydro engineer coming back again, otherwise BG will be called.

    I reckon its something in the boiler, but as I said the boiler is covered with insurance.

    I'll post back with outcome, once solved.

    PLACE YOUR BETS BOYS.
