    Could be a couple of things mate.

    1 - check pump, if the pumps packed in the water in the boiler will heat up rapidly and tell the boiler it is up to temperature and shut down.

    2. Boiler thermostat faulty

    3. Heat exchanger sludged up. Not familier with this particular boiler but if the heating system is fairly old and not regulary maintained it might be the heat exchanger is full of sludge, slowing up water flow and again causing rapid heating rate shuting the boiler down.

    Thanks for the reply mate, It fires up and heats all rads in the house then locks out so the pump and stuff must be fine? or could they still be a factor, When I hit the reset It tries to fire but cant, It sounds like it really struggles to fire then just cuts out. If I let it cool down it fires again. Could it be the control box?

    From what your saying mate it seems like the boiler is overheating so i would change any overheat stats first as these usually tend to be pretty cheap.

    Also check the fan is working and the condition of the rubber tubes going to it for any holes or damage.
