    Hi, run out of gas so red light comes on and heating stops. Next day fill back up with gas. Cooker is working, fridge is working gas at heater but red light will not go out so will not run. I have disconnected power reconnnected, fan will run and it will work on mains but not gas.
    Any ideas please.

    Red light means a fault, not only lack of gas.

    Yes but untill i ran out of gas there was no fault. In the past when i run out the light comes on, when i refill turn the heater off for a few mins. then back on as per the book it resets and all is ok but this time it wont reset why?????

    Just had exactly the same! It was the regulator! Changed that all now ok! Regulator was not supplying enough gas for heating boiler. It would fire up then trip the Truma regulator

    I am thinking along the same lines myself, not enough pressure to open the solinoid valve but ok for the cooker and fridge as they are free flow. Its the origininal one anyway so ten years old. i will replace asap. If anyother ideas please keep them coming.

    hi,
    the reset button is for the 230v side, if it over heats it will trip. My problem is with the gas side as the unit is only a year old i am hoping that there are no internal problems! untill the gas supply is checked i could be jumping to all sort on conclusions. So tomorrow i will fit a new regulator, i carry one just in case! but as it is 'still working' ie some gas is coming out but maybe not enough. I will change it to eliminate the posssible vault then see if it the heater will play if not back to the drawing board.

    Ok. but it seems a bit of a coincidence if the regulator failed at that point.

    If you look at the front of the boiler there is a large rectangular cover over the pcb.. Disconnect the power wires from the left of it and remove it. There are two slow burn fuses there.. Glass ones that need to be checked. The reset switch for the boiler is at 2 o clock roughly from that pcb.. Round the other side of the boiler. You slide the small cover off the button and press it.

    We had a similar problem here in Spain with our Gaslow system, as it was so cold here there was not enough Propane in the GPL locally and although gas hobs/oven working fine the heating wouldn’t work. As soon as I coupled up a Propane bottle to the Galsow filler connection, all was fine.

    I have taken the unit out and asked the service guys at the workshop to have a look at it but was alarmed to see the mark it has made on the floor! looks like it has got a bit hot.
