    Yes there will be one to fit is the short answer, BUT the Riello will cost more when you need to replace parts. Although I assume you have had problems with the Sterling, they are normally a very good burner and very reliable as well (Danfoss coil excluded). Is there any particular reason you want to change?

    Yes, it keeps locking out.
    I have had a long establishes heating co see to it & they replaced the control box & jet, they serviced it etc etc.
    It's always the same, it will work properly for a couple of months then lock out again. They always put it down to "the settings".
    When it locks out, which is only ever on 1st of day fire up, I can getting going by,
    press loch out trip button,
    as the motors run but before it's supposed to ignite, I have to turn the thermostat dial on the boiler from low to high repeatedly say 6 or so times, it will then ignite.

    Try a motor capacitor first, much cheaper than a new burner. A new burner will need to be commissioned by someone with the correct equipment, and I'm not sure whether a Riello blast tube will fit through the hole in the boiler body. Some worcester boilers will not accept the Riello flared blast tube.
