Disconnect cable from live side of fused spur, hold cold water tap and apply tongue to red cable...just like testing a battery!....If it tingles then it's f%$£$ if you come round in hospital with no memory of doing this, the cable is fine.

Hope that helps (i also give tips on any gas appliances) all foc!!

Power at spur?
Power at appliance?
Some appliances don't like having their supply interrupted during use.
Can cause lockout requiring manual reset.
Make & model of the appliance please?

Hi,
Potterton Prima F 40.
The little reset button is under the dial I think, its loose, tried pressing but nothing.
Had a chap out who said power at spur going to programmer but not certain if onto the boiler. Suggested new programmer. Changed that, no change. Boiler does nothing, not a click or anything.
