I put the hot tap on and it tries to fire up 3 times and doesn't do anything at all. Just doesn't fire up and then shuts itself off

Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset I am just one of the techs on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can and I just picked up your question now.

What does it do when it tries to light exactly?

Ask Your Own HVAC Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
It doesn't eveneed try to light at the moment. It only tries to light if I run the hot water. It tries to light 3 times then doesn't do anything
HVAC Technician: HVAC Guru, HVAC TECH replied 2 years ago

OK does it spark when trying to light?

Ask Your Own HVAC Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I can't see a spark but then I don't know where to look. It definitely sounds like it's trying to fire up
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I just have got the hot water going. The boiler is lit but it has not sorted the heating. The heating just isn't responding and the radiators don't warm up or anything even though I have the knob turned to full heat
HVAC Technician: HVAC Guru, HVAC TECH replied 2 years ago

Has it been running for a little bit?

Ask Your Own HVAC Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Yeah but as soon as I turn the water off on the tap the boiler turns itself off
HVAC Technician: HVAC Guru, HVAC TECH replied 2 years ago

Is the thermostat working for the boiler?

Ask Your Own HVAC Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No, not that I can see. It's just not responding at all. Usually I will turn it on and the turn the temperature knob to where I want it and it fires up. It's not firing up at all or responding to the knows being changed. The power light is on. It seems to respond to the hot water being turned on but that is a maximum of about 2 minutes then the flame goes out and the red light comes on
HVAC Technician: HVAC Guru, HVAC TECH replied 2 years ago

Can you get to the thermostat connection on the board in the unit.
