Hi Roy,

All modern boilers have an over heat cut out to prevent damage to their heat exchangers. As you probely know long gone are the old cast irons jobs to be replaced with low water content tin jobs.

If you do not have correct circulation the boiler will quickly go to over heat and cut out so this could well be the problem.

As to a service, cast iron boilers should always be serviced every year as *Naughty Word* can drop onto the burner and 'chill' the flame this will produce CO.

Boilers such as your own do need less servicing despite what the manufacturer may tell you. I use a flue gas analyzer to test the products of combustion and have found that modern boilers can certainly go for two years sometimes three before they need a good clean.

One thing to beware off with a new boiler is the guarantee. Buried in your installation instructions is log to be signed by the service engineer. If you apply for a repair under the manufacturers warranty and the service log is not filled in they can walk away.

Just as well I took out the extended warranty on the ruddy Zanussi. E20 errors popping up and the heater's packed up. Oh well, let's call out Service Farce and let them tell me it 'needs parts'. I have a sense of deja-vu......  <:(

Should always buy a Meile Washing machine yes they are expensive (800 ish) but had mine 24 years and still going and they still make the same machine today! ok2

The problem with most things now is you buy a Samsung LCD and it's the same as LG, buy AEG dishwashers there the same as Hoover and Servis, buy a Vauxhal Vivaro Van there also Nissan and Renault even boilers are the same Valiant are glow worm.

I once worked for Ford at Dagenham we built the Ford Fiesta we also re badged it for Mazda 121 both identical cars but Ford offered 2 years warranty and Mazda offered 5 years warranty  {-)
