I hope you get fixed up soon Katie, it is not a time of the year to be without your heat.

well i think it's because of the weather it's not working.....it's a condenser boiler and apparently the condenser pipe can freeze up and it's really common.......I've tried pouring hot water over the pipe but it hasn't made a difference. Will just leave it till the engineer comes now.......

After you have it fixed try insulating the pipe to protect it from freezing? This usually works.

Think the replacement fan would cost a couple of hundred pounds hope he can recycle the one you have.........mine has been acting up lately as well think I will have to get the boiler replaced it's ancient ......or I'll have to buy an new duvet
