I have a Baxi Bermuda Inset 3 boiler 50/5,fitted about 12-14

Customer Question

I have a Baxi Bermuda Inset 3 boiler 50/5,fitted about 12-14 years ago at the moment it goes straight to red with 2 amber flashes a few seconds apart.
JA: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?
Customer: It has had 4 PCB boards fitted over the years a few weeks ago it was struggling to fire up but did eventually but then just gave up but did work again for two days.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: I have replaced 1 board myself but was thinking of getting a plumber in this time
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: if it was the temp sensor or the gas valve I think it would be best to get a plumber in but a bit of knowledge about possible faults would help.
