We were recently servicing an Ideal ICAR HE24 gas boiler in Wem, Shropshire. Upon inspection of the boiler, we found the burner earth pin to be warped.
In September 2010, Gas Safe released a bulletin (TB 108) outlining modifications to the burner boxes in Ideal ISAR, ICOS, ISTOR and EVO boiler ranges.
In this particular boiler we serviced in Shropshire, heat stress had caused damage to the burner earth pin. We suspect the boiler hadn't been serviced recently, as this image above shows a few years of damage.
Issues like this could affect the performance of your gas boiler and potentially even cause further damage to the appliance. At worst, this could pose as a possible fire hazard.
As part of the gas boiler service, we replaced the burner earth pin.
