I have 133 error on my Potterton 24 HE boiler, I have gas, I have tried the sparked and probe, I suspect now it is maybe the solenoid on the gas valve, how can I test this ??

Are you able to strip the outer cover and take the spark electrode out and see if it is actually sparking?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes I can try that tomorrow

The sparkler is working fine with good spark, I have a spare electrode and already swapped this but both have good spark, Can I force the solenoid on the gas valve to try and open ??

Will it light with a lighter when trying to start?
