'kung fu business'

I have an old Ideal Elan boiler (over 20 years old)
It just stopped working a few days ago. Out of fustration I hit it firmly and it started to work for 3-4 hours.

Since than it only starts with a firm hit (!) and every time it stops it does not reignite on its own.
But I am fed up with this kung fu business.

do you have any idea what could that be....pressure switch ajustment, airfun ?

Meantime I am also looking for a a replacement boiler whithout rushing things,

I am not familiar with that boiler, but I would say you have some burnt contacts that need cleaning or a control replacement.

What part exactly are you hitting to get this to run?

Hi Mark,

Just outside casing...(not a gentle but a firm bang)!

I was sort of thinking about airfun or pressure switch but I will have a look into contacts...

thanks for your reply.
