I've been to a danesmoor 15/19, the motor runs but I couldn't hear the fan, it then goes to lockout. I thought the fan was bolted to the end of the motor. Does replacing the fan sound like a good idea?

Also does anyone know where I can get spares from?

Thanks.

No doubt you wont like the answer but what the hell.

If you were qualified to work on gas or oil boilers you would know where to source your spares. :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

There's more than just a fan going to cause lockout.
Try an OFTEC registered engineer ;)

I am OFTEC registered. I'm obviously newly qualified as a technician....we all start somewhere.

Cheers for jumping on my back!

Hmmm.... so where do I source spares? I'm aware there's more to an ignition sequence than a fan. The solenoid is ok, photocell is ok too.

You may be Oftec registered, but as to the "Technician" bit I think that you taketh the P$$$.

Have you removed the motor to check that the impellor (fan) has not been stolen by Gremlins?

I've been to Mary Poppins and Next, but they just gave me a strange look :eek:

I've found some good mail order sites for spares, and of course my merchant.

I might just put a new burner on though ;) I'll make more money that way ;)

why not try reading the burner manual, understanding the principle of operation, and repair it like a grown up would. :LOL:

Thanks Stone, I was browsing the worcester site last night.

I'm going back to the job to take a more thorough look, and hopefully I can find the fault.

Cheers for the help.
