I have an Ethos 54c combo boiler that has stopped working -

Customer Question

Hi I have an Ethos 54c combo boiler that has stopped working - it says F8 which seems to be the fan
Local Plummer reluctant to touch it as he's not familiar with this product and says I'm better off buying a new one which seems odd as boiler is 6 years old and worked fine upto now!
Any advice please as what's best
Cheers mike

When you run the boiler can you hear the fan running?

Do you get air movement if you put your hand over the flue when it starts up?

No fan running and British Gas engineer came out and said he couldn't even find spare fan part with his supplier - which he contacted in my presence over speaker phone - so as it's probably going to be a pain trying to repair we are just replacing boiler
Many thanks
