    Hi, i have Worcester greenstar heatslave 18 oil boiler, the last few nights the main rcb had tripped i reset and all fine but went off again overnight, could this be related to my burner randomly not firing? I'm gas safe so tested all components in the boiler ok only thing really is the burner, i cleaned photocell but cant check capacitor as its right inside the boiler. It does fire up mostly though, any thoughts?

    Your gassafe! But can’t check capacitor. Not difficult. Remove red burner cover capacitor is attached motor. Very easy to check.what else have you tested?

    I didn't want to go poking round insife the burner as its hard to access, I've traced it back to faulty 2 port, noise was pipes vibrating due to bypass

    So you've sorted the banging out. This will have no bearing on the burner lockout. A good service is required.
