    Do you have a stand alone thermostat? Its maybe turned down to below the room temp. If thats ok maybe just needs a new thermocouple.

    Well, just as I wrote the thread I turned off the electric switch... waited and turned it one again (like a reboot)

    it started working..

    On full gas flame (through the viewing window) and all the radiators started to heat up..

    Then it stopped again.. and now is clicking..

    The thermostat is on maximum...

    No idea what the pressure is, how would I check that?

    Any ideas?

    There should be a water pressure gauge on the boiler to tell you what pressure is in the system. Have a look in the manual.

    on mine there is a boost gauge type thing. Its a new style combi. the preasure can drop and need topped up. That the only problem i have had with mine.

    If yours is an older style, it might have a thermocouple which sometimes need replacing

    If its a combi and the themocouple has gone then there wouldn't be any hot water either.

    No water pressure gauges
    No Boost gauges

    Its 13 years old... just a simple cheap thing probably..

    It came on again full flame for 3-4 minutes and gone back off again?

    ??

    I've bled all the radiators as well... so no air in the system as far as aware
