    If you have gas, ignition sparking but not lighting...most defiantly ..faulty gas valve or solenoid, try a meter on the gas valve if it reads 240 v its failed, There is a manual you can download as the boiler has leds that light up when there is a fault and depending which ones lit tells you the fault.
    Download it from http://manuals.aonly.co.uk/index.php...%252FGlow+Worm its the 3rd one down and fault finding starts on page 26.

    Hope it helps dude as I aint done boiler repairs for 4 years lol
    Deal with health and safety these days

    To be honest I'd get someone in...

    I did a bit of basic plumbing on systems with modern boilers recently, was amazed at the amount of electronics and sensors which are now involved. Much like a modern engine, except you can't borrow "op-com for boilers" from a forum member!

    Is it a Micron? My mums has fully electronic ignition no pilot - has munched it's way through 3 PCB's in its life (ECU to you lot) which renders it useless until replaced.

    Any flashy lights on it?
