yes ignition electrodes need replacing every 2 years but to be honest id say that would be normal.
if that is your idea of quality then that explains the rest of the boiler build quality.
I think it will take a lifetime before i'll be installing anymore ideals.
Out of all the Icos/Isars/Evo's I have fitted, I have only had to replace ignition electrodes on one, my Isar has been in 8 years and Electrodes are fine, whether Ideal honour their warranties isn't relative to the boiler quality, my personal experience is they are not a bad boiler, I reckon because so many have been fitted by Warmfront and housing associations, therefore been chucked in badly, is more to do with the problem, I have seen quite a few Warmfront installations, all ****te, they totally lied about cleanser and inhibitor when questioned if it was put in on one job I attended.
