The faithful old girl (21 years) has finally been replaced with a new baxi duo-tec 24, through no fault of her own. :(

I discovered a leak in the automatic air vent and fixed it myself, I then stupidly tried to nip up a weeping joint on the heat exchanger, big mistake, and twisted the soft braised pipe at the at the junction of the HE, folding it flat :rolleyes:


Anyway, apart from the heat exchanger being now useless, would it be worth while putting up the other bits on E-bay.

I still look after a few of these.

But generally they are beyond their normal life expectancy.

Its the first Lynx that I by far prefer. But they mostly die when their air flow sensor fails.

That sensor is no longer available and the odd used one that appears sells for a premium price!

I cannot think of anything worth much on the new Lynx apart from perhaps the water flow switch and oddly the reset switch which fails when water drips on to it.

Thanks Tony.
It's frightening the cost of parts in relation to the cost of a new boiler, but I guess the same applies to everything, cars, white goods, etc.

It's just that the gas valve, three circuit boards, diverter valve, fan etc are all ok
