    I am going to get it serviced but just want an opinion as to whether this is likely to be a major issue.

    Works OK of 12v and 240, but when on gas although its seems to work (ignites) the indicator never goes green and continues to Flash.

    Any thoughts on what could cause this?

    tis either a blocked jet or the thermocouple is shot, either way a fairly simple DIY job to sort out. clean it before spending out real dosh Paul, or get Violet to do it.

    It could be either the thermocouple about £26 I think or the interuptor on the changover switch cos it links to that when you change from 12 volt to leccy or gas they about £50:Rofl1:Ask me how I know:thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Sounds like a dirty burner and sooted flue to me. Get it serviced properly.

    Thanks all for the advice, had a quick look at it last night and its burning with an orange flame which I believe suggests burner and sooting.

    Will be looking to get it serviced asap.

    Cheers.

    Had its serviced and given the OK to use.

    Turns out the indicator not turning green requires a new PCB. :Sad:

    Never mind Paul, it's only money. Dress up like you did at Eden Camp and go down Sunderland docks and you'll be sorted in no time :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:
