    plz help
    my Worcester Greenstar 12i Condensing System Boiler stopped working last nite, i've had a plumber out today. whom couldn't repair the boiler, he is getting in contact with worcester for some advise.
    the plumber said there is water in the trap but he cant find out what with it because the boiler keeps locking and going off.
    he can speak to anyone until monday so im without heating and my house is freezing.
    any advice with be appreciated

    Check where the condense pipe comes out of the house and pour boiling water over it, it may well have froze!

    Yes because the boiler cant operate if the condense backs up!

    He may well have been looking to deep into the problem but remember we are not sure if it has froze or not!
    Ijust dont understand how all the callouts today have been worcesters it beggers belief :eek:
    Just let us know what the problem was if it is something else ;)

    Hi, my Greenstar 12i has stopped working. No fault lights at all? I turned off the cental heating during the day because it was getting to hot, turned it back on and nothing. I have re-set boiler and turned off then on and still nothing, the house is freezing. Would it be the out side pipe? I would be very grateful of any help.
