Discuss the boiler does not start in the Plumbing Forum | Plumbing Advice area at PlumbersForums.net
Hi, very accurate diagnosis. There was a plumber at my place and he found a blocked chimney. Thanks againI'm hearing solenoid energise and a brief second of ignition before flame fails. The only time you will experience smoke/gases coming back through air intake is if the pressure inside chamber and flue is greater than atmospheric.
Of course there could be more going on but I'm willing to bet the attending technician will find a blocked chamber or flue.
Please do not keep trying to ignite the boiler, find a decent engineer to thoroughly look over it.
From what I can see in the video the bearings will definitely need replacing soon, the oil flexi looks in a bad way and could perish at any time, plus anything else that I can't see in the video.
Put your immersion heater on for now so you at least have hot water.
