    the pilot is lit; but the boiler won't fire and there is no hot water or central heating despite both thermostat being on max; the boiler switch is on the max...... the only thing i had done was to reduce the water temp thermostat on the hot water tank couple of days ago. any ideas ?
    thank you

    Make sure all 3 stats are as you said.......

    1) Boiler stat set to Max 2) Room-Stat up Hi ? 3) Cyl Stat above 60deg ?

    Could be a few things - Pump, Div Valve or Gas Valve

    Are pipes to CHB Hot or cold - or one hot one cold ?

    Good Luck

    You will need to get a RGI to have a look at your boiler

    if you have a multimeter and know how to use it, check that you have 240v at the L connection in boiler, if you have 240 then its a boiler problem, if not then its an external control fault.
