Customer Question

Hi - my Potterton Kingfisher shorts the electric as soon as the system fires up - only serviced 2 days ago and the engineer thinks it might be the gas valve causing it to short?

Have you tried removing the electrical plug from the top of the gas valve and seeing if it still blows.

This would only be the case if the boiler had been trying for 3 or 4 seconds.

If it blows immediately then it could be the fan.
