Question Glow-worm 40 B SUPER: Suddenly not igniting/heating

Hi,

My place currently has a Glow-worm 40 B SUPER, it looks pretty old too me but it's been working OK for about 6 months. We don't use timed heating but just switch the heating to ON (at the wall) whenever we need it.

As of this morning though, switching the heating to ON at the wall as usual, there's a kinda mechanical click from the Glow-worm but then nothing else. No water-flow, no pilot/gas ignition, etc. It just sits there and doesn't do anything. Have tried switching power on/off, running the taps for a bit, leaving it on for ages, etc but to no avail. I'm quite ignorant about plumbing so have no logical plan of attack really

Is there anything I can try/test to kick it into action?

Some pictures below:



Can I use this to test the pilot light?

Can you tell if the pilot is lit? or has it gone out?

It's out atm. I've seen it on before, but not sure if it's on 24/7 usually.

It's through this little window (which has been cracked since we moved in):
