Warmflow boiler leaking.

I have a warmflow kabin pak green90 oil boiler that is leaking water. Looks like the shell is cracked somewhere. Does anyone know anywhere in the midlands I can get a secondhand one? If I get one, are they easily interchanged? Whats involved in changing it?(is it just disconnecting the electrics, draining the system, shuting off the oil supply etc?) Will it be easy to fit a different brand? If I need a pro to do it, roughly how much will it cost me? Any help greatly appreciated!!

You need a "pro" to look at it, its unlikely the "shell" is cracked.

Shells cracked alright, there's no other way for the water to get in. I fitted a new bathroom with out the help of a pro and am pretty sure i can swap a like for like boiler. Imjust wondering how much it might cost if i need to get someone .I can do the electrics my self.

Not unlikely at all, most shells come with a 3-5 year warranty, most installers will replace entire boiler rather than drain and attempt to weld

You won't get like for like as you can only fit a condensing appliance and will save approx 10% on fuel
