    I should add that before buying my first property, I was a tenant of a one bed flat for two years in Worcester and then for two years in a bedsitter in Holland Park. As well as several temporary rooms and "digs" as well.

    Of course things have changed, but I remember seeing a "room to rent" sign at Crystal Palace and knocking on a green door to be told "this is a black house" !

    Ok. I am a heating engineer and I agree it's not the tenants job to be responsible for organising a service? Plus I believe servicing is more for efficiency than safety. Gas boilers are so full of safety devices it's going to be bizarre that not servicing your boiler is going to make it unsafe! Fan breaks APS will not open gas valve, no flame will be picked up by flame rec, overheating taken up by temp sensor. So I think it is a bit patronising when someone just wants to put there boiler on. Plus I've seen many social housing fuks just stick there analyser on, lid still on, and if the CO is OK empty the condence trap and go......

    It amazes me how stupid people can be. The point is the reminder is there for the benefit of the tenant.

    The safety check is there for the benefit of the tenant.

    The landlord is responsible for the maintenance, but the tenant has to let the poor engineer in.

    Beats working for a living. :p



    Actually, that's a lie. I saw ten minutes or so of that once when in a doctor's waiting room. Depressing isn't the word.

    Who says we're talking about you?

    I was thinking more the ranting idiot on the last page that didn't know that the service reminder on his timer meant it was time to get the system eerrrrrrmmm..... Serviced.

    As a heating engineer of education and good standing you will of course have experienced tenants too stupid to let you know for their annual check despite letters and phone calls.

    Well said Ackster. Dan Robinson, who on earth do you think you are belittling people the way you have? The comments on this thread are an utter disgrace, all the poor woman wanted was some advice. What has anyone's level of education got to do with commenting on a DIY forum? I didn't see a drop down box for that when I signed up. You ignorant, educated people have basically assumed that anyone who has this message on their boiler, obviously lives in affordable rented housing association properties, has no job and sits about doing nothing but watch Jeremy Kyle all day. 'They' will disappear? 'The lesser breeds' You' people are a disgrace to the human race. I'm in university doing a PhD, living in rented accommodation and this message has appeared on my boiler giving me 28 days. The only reason I actually saw it tonight was because I was cleaning, as the control box is tucked away in a cupboard out of view, with it being summer I don't look at it often. I do however check the display on the actual boiler, every week to check for faults as it is this display that you are advised to check in the manual, not the control panel for your heating/water timer that the message appears on. Your belittling and discriminatory points are therefore redundant. I thought you highly educated people would have been well aware of this small fact.

    When people start lobbying 'look how clever I am, I have a degree, no, 10 degrees, I speak better English and write better too, then it is time to walk away:eek:

    To paraphrase quote from a well known TV programme 'how big is your Danda ?'

    A can of worms has been opened. I am retiring to my bomb shelter:ROFLMAO:

    It is a TIMER timing the interval between service calls. It cannot detect a fault that makes the equipment dangerous. Other safety devices do that and they will, if necessary, shut the boiler down irrespective of how much time is left on the service interval timer.

    Shutting a boiler down simply because a serviced call is overdue could leave the house freezing cold and thus put the occupiers at risk.

    A warning and anoying bleeper would be a better option.

    Obviously but as said disabling the heating could reduce the tenant's safety and health.

    So the landlord notifies the tenant that a service is due and between them they agree the way the service technician will have access.

    Like wise when people start saying "I am qualified, I have the certificates from the training school to prove it" instead of actually thinking about what is being discussed.

    End of the day fixing a fault is the black magic that consists of thinking outside the box, using available tools and use of devious methods to then perhaps be successful. I have come across people with degrees and solid work experiences that have forgotten more than I will ever learn in a lifetime. Have also encountered the opposite where people could not put a nut in monkeys mouth:sneaky:

    Boiler or timer? Make up your mind. Who gives a monkey's if you're doing a PhD and renting? Now if you were doing a PhD and owned your house I might be more impressed.

    As it stands, though.... I probably wouldn't. :p

    People should know when safety checks are due. It is in their own interests. If they ignore reminders of any ilk then tough.
