Your Heating Control /temperature guage,( Usually fitted on a wall from 10 to 30 degrees) get the hoover out and do the top opening, sometimes it gets clogged with dust and sticks, Try it, it might just work. Sometimes its just the simplist of things that need looking at.

Number 8 has been and gone .

He def knows what is wrong with it it is overheating !!!!!!! He has ordered yet another part which will come tomorrow.

I can't turn it on at all now .At least the past few days it would go on even if it was only for 10 minutes at least it took the chill off for a while .

He slapped a safety notice on my boiler because my flue pipe needs a bracket on it .Funny the previous 7 men never mentioned that .

Ready to give up and emigrate

Seems like your Boiler is named "Enigma"and your Gas Company should employ a decent Engineer.When next they arrive to repair it Dress as" Miss Whiplash" with the emphasis on Whip, a B great big one. :-D :-D

Defiantly a letter to head office, request compensation, 7 men failed to notice my boiler was dangerous, you have serviced it for years etc etc.

Just emigrate to England cheeper than going abroad and we almost speak the same language! It's a bit fresh but sunny and no snow in Sussex at the moment!

Best of luck tomorrow,

Pile on more clothes Kathy and then put your dressinggown on over them all, as you have been doing (I spoke to Kathy yesterday) Then please send me a picture as I have never seen you fat lol

Bless you, such a shame no. 6 didn't offer to come back and keep you warm while you were having so many problems.

It's disgraceful that you have had such bad service, hope you get compensation. Nearly time to contact the newspapers I think, being a pensioner will get their interest, but no one should be left in the lurch like this. Wish I was nearer as I have several electric heaters that would help you stay warm, just rather a long way to send them.

Take care, and will talk to you again soon

love and warm hugs

Thank you all for making me laugh .

Number 8 today was from Sunderland he and others had been called up to scotland as they can't cope with breakdowns here with their own work force .

Did manage to get the heating going a few times today but took hundreds of attempts and only lasted 20 mins max .

Tomorrow I have to go out so son can freeze his what nots off waiting for the promised right part .( Sunderland man assured me he had got to the bottom of the problem ) Just hope he is right ??????

Good idea, Kathy, go out and stay somewhere warm lol I do hope No 8 gets things sorted for you but still think you need compensating, a case of wine would help eh?

Almost scared to write this but number 9 ( who was also no 8 ) came this afternoon and replaced a part and my heating has been on now for 5hrs without cutting off .

The only one unhappy is the cat since he no longer has the gas fire to curl up infront of .

So fingers crossed that this is the end of the saga .

Away to have a long hot soak .

Kathy :-)

Finger/eyes/every else than can be crossed is done.

Been there before too with our warm air central heating that kept cutting out. Got peed off with BG engineers calling and you could see by their facial expressions that they had no idea how the boiler worked let alone diagnose the fault.

so 5hrs and still working sounds a good un.

Still keeping my legs crossed for you !! :-D :-D :-D :-D

Oh Kathy, hope you are all warm and snug now and the boiler will stay on when it should. About time and I still think you should have a case of wine as compensation lol

I am laughing about Shirley's engineers, not surprising they didn't know how to fix the boiler if they came from BT lol

Take care, and will talk to you again soon



Bobtanian Report 21 Jan 2013 10:21

BT profess to be able to fix practically everything these days.............

is it still working?

Kathy near the Report 21 Jan 2013 13:18

Yes it is still working !!!!!! :-)

The heating has been on 24/7 as it is so cold here .and I have had so many hot baths that I will be turning into a prune .

Should have known not to buy a house at the top of a hill near the coast in N/E scotland where the north sea wind blows all year round !!!!!

Fingers crossed it stays on and you stay warm Kathy.
