Hi.

Is anyone able to tell me if this is normal.

I have a 8 litre whale hot water heater, the blue one with black insulation around it and to operate it a 3 position switch for electric and a 2 position switch to turn the gas on or off.

It works perfectly heating up water on electric but unsure about the gas side of things

When it is full of cold water I turn the gas on the gas ignites, as indicated by the green light on the switches, it will run for around a minute then turn off. 30 seconds later it will re-ignite run for a short period of time and then turn off again for say 40 seconds.

It continues to do this on off on off sequence. The red lockout led does not come on and the boiler will quite happily keep starting up and switching off every few minutes or so.

Should it be doing this or should the gas stay on untill the water is hot, then turn off

Thank you.

Dan
