    Hi, its been a while since I had a truma, but isn't there a vent cover you are supposed to remove on the outside before lighting?

    Truma boiler

    Hi Bagylip

    We had this problem on a C6002 boiler some time ago, and found the reset button cured all.

    You don't say which model boiler you have, but if it has a reset button, usually found under a slider, about the size of a matchbox, and located at about 2.00pm as you look down on the boiler, about 150mm (6") from the top. Slide the cover up, press the reset button once, (its red!) and try again. I think i'm right in saying the manual says to let the boiler water go cold before resetting.

    Hope this helps.

    Good luck.:thumb:

    Hi this may sound silly but try warming the circuit board with a hair dryer :thumb: then try your boiler. If this works it may need
    1 sealing with circuit board sealer (spray on varnish type )
    2 new board or repair - get this from Trauma about 40 quids - you can also get them to trouble shoot at there factory for around the same price per hour :thumb: ( notts - derby area )
