Perhaps not the answer that you are looking for, but Screwfix click here have a good forum for individual trades.

I seem to remember you extolling the virtues of ScrewFix before- have you an affinity for a screw or two ;-)

I think you should re-phrase that Jack.

In the mean time why not confer with this forum?

At least you would see how knowledgable we are to the proffesional.

I have two good friends who are plumbers and a nephew who is a self employed Corgi Registered Plumber/Gas fitter.

Tell me what you need to know and I will ask them for you?

can be had on these forums about gas appliances

But dont go messing around with the gas installation itself. Maybe your problem lies with an ancilliary?

One of my neighbours is a registered Corgi plumber - I wouldn't let him anywhere near anything that uses gas in my household...:-)

In fact the plumber I use if it is necessary lives about four miles away and really does know his stuff.

Why is that Bingalau?
Was I rude or something?
Thank you for all the tips- will delve.
Meanwhile Pamy said why not tell you all
OK here goes
The appliance is a Britony instant water heater
'turn a tap anywhere in the house and instant hot water
Not very old and serviced annually.
Now here is the puzzlement. As I said turn a tap -ouch
But run a shower and cold water until a basin or bath hot tap is turned on - then it fires up.
In the Kitchen- run the washing machine- machine needs a hot fill- the water flows but the heater will fire up until a sink hot tap is opened- then
it fires up.
It was serviced about 3 months ago and all was well then.
So I simply would like to get a handle on the problem- if indeed there is one before yet another mortgage for the plumbers fees.

No seriously, I have a similar system and sometimes if I only turn on a slow flow from any tap or shower, it runs cold It will require an enginer to get into the program and reset it
