We've got a 28CDi must be near as old or older, still going strong, the thought of replacing it scares me

If you do choose to get a combi fitted have a viessmann installed, quality boilers and if installed by a approved installer come with a 10 year warranty but have an engineer look at your existing boiler might be an easy fix

My Netaheat has an electronic ignition. The fan starts up causes a vacuum which closes a switch which in turn opens the gas valve and then the electronic ignition comes into play.
Stand to be corrected but that's why I think the fan has gone faulty/noisy

Not seen one for years but from memory they have a pilot lite which ignites the gas when the valve opens so that is the first thing to check.

Everything seems to be being made to not last. Iím replacing Velux that are 25-40years old most days but Iím now also replacing the last generation that are about 15 years old.

Everyoneís making everything to last the guarantee and thatís it.

To the op: your best bet is getting a few engineers round for an opinion on the overall state of the boiler and having it repaired or replaced based on their opinions.

I get that. The boiler could be repaired and something else can go wrong the next day but the Netaheats have a reputation of keep on going and going that's why companies such as the one in my link still stock parts.
From what I can gather new boilers have a relatively short life, nowhere near 30 years

The problem with repairs from a tradesmens perspective is itís incredibly hard to find old parts that take a lot of driving round, sourcing, phone calls and travelling to the job then fitting. To find a £40 part and to install can equate to a days time. £250 a day plus part and vat, most customers cost it up and will decide to have a new one with guarantee etc rather than trying to spruce up something thatís 30years old and likely to have more issues relatively soon. Itís not always the tradesmen trying to rip people off.

Might be the fan. It should run for a few seconds then you'll hear a click before the gas is ignited
They are getting scarce but still available

Netaheat has an outdated inefficient cast iron heat exchanger but unlike modern boilers as you've found they last for years and years.
Your problem is finding a plumber who 's happy to fix it most of them want a whack a new one in to maximise their profit.

Definitely not fitted, I paid for my mums to be done by a mate not long ago and still cost £1650cash to be done, only minor adjustments to the pipe work needed. That did have the magnaclean on it though.
