Customer Question
Hi I have a glow...
Hi I have a glow worm 80ff which stopped working. The reset light came on but I couldn't reset it. I changed the pcb and this seemed to work for a while. It now comes on for about an hour then switches off showing the solid reset light. I turn the temp knob on the boiler down and back up again and it fires up. Any idea?

fan comes on after it's been reset. I've just changed the thermistor too. Still cuts out after about 45mins

With the red light?

It sounds like it is overheating - how hot Are the radiators to touch when it does this?

Hi Andrew. I wiggled the wires about on the plug end of the thermistor and it's now working fine. Just a bad connection I think. Thank you for your time
Plumber: Andrew Smith, Engineer replied 2 years ago

Ok, no problem - keep an eye on it and come back if it causes you any more problems
