GLEDHILL BOILERMATE 2000 REPAIRS, NO MAINS SUPPLY TO PCB, CUSTOMER HAD BEEN RUNNING ON "SWITCH" FACILLITY FOR 2 WEEKS. I FOUND THAT THE FUSE CARRIERS THAT CARRY THE FUSES FOR THE SWITCH HEATER BOTTLE WERE BURNT OUT AND 1 FUSE HAD POPPED, THIS TELLS ME THAT ONE OF THE 4.5KW HEATER COILS HAS FAILED, ALSO THE GLOWORM BOILER TO HEAT THE STORE WAS NOT FIRING UP. CUSTOMER TOLD ME THAT THEY HAD HAD 2 ENGINEERS TO LOOK AT THE BOILER AND HAD NOT BEEN ABLE TO RECTIFY THE FAULT, ONE OF THEM BEING FROM GLOWORM ! I FOUND THAT THE PCB CONTROL BOARD HAD BEEN REPLACED AND THE CONNECTION FOR THE AIR PRESSURE SWITCH WAS NOT MAKING A GOOD CONTACT, IT WAS ARCING AND CAUSING THE FAST BLOW FUSE ON THE BOILERMATE PCB TO POP.REMADE CONNECTION,REPLACED FUSE CARRIERS,AND GT153 SENSOR AS THIS WAS SHOWING ERROR CODE, LEFT IN WORKING ORDER, TO RETURN WITH SWITCH BOTTLE HEATER.
