We have a very old looking boiler. It is a Glow-worm hideaway 40 (I think). It seems to be very old and antiquated. However it normally works but today the pilot light keeps blowing out. I've relit it about 5 times but it still goes out.
Does anyone know if it's a common problem or indeed dangerous? Does the gas only come through when it's on?
Also I guess the boiler would be very inefficient but is it worth keeping?
