Default ci Carioca 5 FIAT - Truma Boiler

I'm having real problems with the 10litre truma boiler - its not working.
the vent is open, the gas is open and the pilot light is alight - what to
do?

Join the club matey. In other words, the lights are on but no-one's at home?
What model is it? There are many questions I could ask you but need to know
what boiler you have. Mine (C3400) has been out of action since Easter. Does
it have electronic control? If so the most likely culprit is the control
board which costs over 200 (outrageous - I can get a Pentium 4 motherboard
with RAM and processor for that - no I can actually get 2). 5 mins to fit
but weeks or months to get Truma to supply one. The problem is that they
delight in constantly changing designs so you have to know not just the
model but the serial number. Then they will most likely send you (a) the
wrong one, or (b) the right one but faulty. I speak from experience. And
they will refuse to supply directly to you, but only via your local dealer
if you have one. Advice - if it has a control board look at the fuses. Try
the obvious and simple things first. I did - but I was wrong (you might be
right). If you do find a parts dealer they will probably be Truma trained so
ask their advice. Good luck!
