Swift Conqueror 540 Water Heater

Postby BIGHAP » March 4th, 2010, 5:56 pm

Hello everyone

I have just taken my caravan out of storage ready for the first outing and to check everything is working.

I can't get the water heater to ignite on gas and it defaults after 15 seconds or so.

It works fine on electric and all the other appliances work on gas, has anyone any ideas.

The caravan was new in May last year.

Thanks in advance Steve H

The cause is probably air in the gas pipes so keep trying. Also have you remembered to remove the heater cover?

Thanks for your input mate.

I have removed the covers but I would suggest that unlike other caravans I have owned when they are removed the grill behind is not secure.

I have tried to ignite system for over an hour allowing time in betweeneach attempt and Have had no success.

Check the obvious first....... Is the gas isolation valve to the boiler on . When you try to ignite do you hear a cluncking sound (gas valve opening) followed by a fast ticking sound (the igniter)......... if it fails you will hear the gas valve close again.
