    Installed same yesterday ran A OK.

    Was cycling fine. Failed some point over night.

    No ignition spark (cant hear) goes to err after approx 1min.

    Reset no effect. Gas pressure fine

    Flow chart shows check replace Spark electrode, suspect this is not the case, wondering if its something to do with condensate sensor?

    Has anyone got more detailed information / sugestions.

    With thanks
  2. Are you CORGI registered?

    Have you checked that the condensate trap is emptying?

    Have you tried disconnecting the condensate trap full sensor lead?

    Are you CORGI registered?

    He doen't have to be if he is doing for himself. The laws says "competent". You know this.

    water systems - I'm afraid to say you are incorrect.

    "Competent" by CORGI regs actually refers to someone currently registered. Not just someone who knows what they are doing.

    I don't believe it. :(:(

    Sorry again boskoman I have to agree with the salesman on this.

    Competent is defined by the HSE, and any competent diyer is perfectly legal to do gas work in their own home.

    Corgy are a registration body they do not write the regulations or police them.

    CORGI only proves "competence" by a person holding a relevant ACS or similar.

    feel free to change the hose on your cooker.

    Excepted boskoman, but the law does not require you to be Corgy registered unless you do gas work for gain.

    As I already said, Corgy are a registration body, the HSE make the rules and police them sometimes.

    wrong. ANY work carried out with gas must be by a competent person. regarless. I'll find the regs in the next day or two.

    I have the regs thank you.

    A DIyer must be Competent not Corgy Registered.

    feel free you're find it in the safety in the installation of gas etc.

    regulation 2 22

    for the purpose of these regulation, work includes do-it-yourself activities, work undertaken as a favour for friends and relatives, and work for which there is no expectation of reward or gain, eg voluntary activity for charities. This means that anyone carrying out such word must have the neccessary competence as required by regulations 3(1). However, membership of an HSE approved class of persons ( under regulation 3(3)) is required only by businesses carrying out gas fitting work (see paragraph 43-45
