Problem with ravenheat boiler



Im having a problem with my boiler (ravenheat little star), i have no experience with them so if you know whats up, please use simple terms :p

Basically the boiler seems to have a mind of its own as to when i get hot water or heating. I have both dials up to max, and its switched on.

Sometimes when i run the taps, its freezing cold, other times its hot for 10 secs or so, then cold, then hot etc.

The heating just comes on whenever it feels like it, i can have it turned on for hours, and have it start working all of a sudden.

I have it on winter setting, and when io turn taps on, it does make a noise, but sometimes it doesnt mean anything.

I know this is very vague, but does anyone have a clue what im doing wrong? (im pretty sure the boiler isnt broke, just im doing something wrong). Ive tried the manual but its no help at all.

any help would be appreciated, thanks.
