Default Boiler help please ( "ignition lock out" ideal boiler)

Hi all,

Any help much appreciated with a LED illuminating showing "ignition lock
out" warning
when i try to run the hot water or turn on the heating. The water warms
briefly
then turns cold after an audible click is heard. The fan, pump and
everything else seems
to continue to run,

any advice much appreciated ,

nige

Stand by for lots of 'more details, please' replies! At the very least
I would think that knowing the manufacturer and model of your boiler
will be required.

Dare I guess at Potterton Suprima?

If the ignition lockout light is to be believed and there is heat albeit
briefly then it more or less tracks it down to the flame sensing system.

So (FS Electrode, FS wiring, PCB).

Ideal do a wide range of boilers, my advice would be to be a bit more
specific ... what boiler is it ?

You could but my guess is that you'd be wrong ... the subject gives it
away

If bitter suprima owners got together and formed a political party,
they'd be a force to be reckoned with
