Housewarmer epic 2 back boiler with fire. i'm having difficlties with the pilot light keep going out when the boiler is not on. i also have to manually start the boiler everytime, any suggestions?
The pilot light stays on if heating or hot water is required, the problem arises when the bolier goes off with the timer etc. The pilot light is also becoming more and more difficult to light as time progresses...many thanks
Update-thank you for your responce, I did indeed have the Thermocouple replaced...thanks
