Alpha Combi Boiler no pilot light

Hello All,

Someone please help me on an issue, which my one-year-old Alpha combi boiler is facing from last five days. The boiler has no pilot light. Sometimes, it merely works for a minute. Has someone faced this issue earlier if yes, then please share the possible way outs.

Anxiously waiting to hear from you


Hi Jess,

I guess there is an issue of the flame detection. There are numerous reasons behind it but, at times, clogged pilot jet is a culprit. Well, it is difficult for you to identify the actual reason on your own. Therefore, you have to seek help and advice from a professional boiler engineer because the entire procedure consists of boiler’s dissembling which is a technical thing.

I hope that this information will help you in fixing the boiler.
