    Hello-I have a 1990 Hymer B534 with a Truma B0 water heater. Sadly I have so far failed to get any hot water.
    I have filled the system so I get cold water from the hot taps.
    I switch it on- The green light comes on and stays on. i set the temperature to 60. There is gas supply to the unit. I don't hear anything like an ignition sound. I have checked the vent and this seems clear.
    Can anyone help?

    Take the vent cover off and see if you have any excess 'sooting' If so, then it my be a problem with the burner.

    If the ignitor isn't working, then the boiler would shut itself off. As it says it is running, it probably is, but not efficiently. As I said this is usually down to a burner fault/burner management fault.

    hi had a problem similar to this a few years ago as said very likely to be igniter if not could be more serious as ours was anyhow in the end we bought a new boiler easier said than done because they have changed over the years it took us quite a while to get the right one at a decent price most places wanted 500 plus but we did get one at a show for 180 pound new .
    unfortunately we are off in a few days to france but we did keep the old boiler so if u need any parts and we can help give us a shout and u would be welcome to them but not for a couple of weeks .pm me if u need anything but wont be able to help till we get back .:thumb:
