Baxi Bermuda 552 - pilot light keeps going out

  1. Hi All,

    Quick query, have a baxi bermuda 552 boiler with a gas fire front, and the pilot light won't stay alight.

    I thought that it might be the thermo couple, but if the gas fire is on then it all works fine.

    Any help greatly appreciated,

    dangerous things back boilers if you don't know.

    could be pilot needs adjusting, too much gas will cause lift and the pilot to go out.

    with the fire on less gas for the pilot.

    but then i might be wrong.

    I had a similar problem with my baxi Bermuda btb1
    When I had it looked at they just turned the gas to the pilot light off.
    I had only become aware of the problem because the gas from the pilot light was going up the wall and into the airing cupboard in one of the kids bedrooms.
    Apparently spare coils for the pilot lights arent stocked.
    I had a similar problem with a gas cooker years ago.
    British Gas came out and just turned all the pilot lights off.
