Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

Some of the moans in this thread makes my own moans seem really really trivial. Let's just hope that 2018 is a much better year for all of us. This year has sucked.

What!

I had a clip on my Mondeo that damaged the front right wing, bumper and smashed the headlight.

I got it back within 2 days.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

Just clicked on dl repair status and my car should be ready on Thursday now that is what I call fantastic service.

There was a slight hiccup with the tracking service but that was sorted fairly quickly once it was brought to the garages attention the reg had a wrong letter in it, Y instead of a K.

He is going in for the last time today weenie to collect his personal belongings from the locker but what really makes me angry is the 4000 employees found out the company had gone into administration from the internet before they were told the bad news by the company.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

That really is quite disgusting den but sadly this does not surprise me at all in this day and age.

I remember a few years ago a jewelry shop closed down and the poor staff turned up for work only to find that there place of work was no more and the shop empty they had no idea what was going on, I personally found this disgusting also.

I hope your brother finds employment soon den.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

End of the second day without a boiler (condenser).

British Gas boiler engineer came out this morning (pleased with the speedy response), investigated, and believed it was an electrical fault. He called Despatch, and asked for an engineer, and was given a date of 21st December - he was very good, and convinced Despatch to escalate, and they got an on-call (not BG) electrician who has just left.

It’s (apparently) not an electrical problem, but an issue with the pump in the airing cupboard upstairs, which needs a heating engineer (apparently different from a boiler engineer) - he’s called it in, and I should be getting a call in the morning informing me what happens next...

Luckily we have a gas fire in the lounge, and an immersion heater we can use for hot water.

Here’s hoping for a speedy resolution to this issue.

Modern boilers seem to be crap. My sons constantly breaks down; however he's renting and it's the landlord who constantly has to fix.
Mine is circa 1979, has never broken down (touch wood !).
Forget BG Hugh, they will just say they don't have the parts, and try and flog you another boiler. Get a local independent trader to have a look, nothing lost. A pump should be simple to replace.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

I have a Service Agreement, which covers all costs (including replacement).

tbf, the boiler is 10 years old and it’s the first problem we’ve had with it ( we did get it fitted by a local independent, just use BG for the Service Agreement) and it’s probably the pump in the airing cupboard, which is 33 years old...

Yes, which isn't going to help you with the cold snap coming this weekend. If it was me I'd pay someone to fix it, be warm, and claim the money off BG (mention Watchdog ! ).

That’s Plan B if it’s not resolved in a day or two...

Now fixed by BG.

Faulty fan and blown fuse in boiler PCB - the house is now toasty again, rather than just the lounge....
