Firebird 50/82

    Hi all,

    Have a Firebird Super Q 50/82 boiler. I was trying to twist the temperature knob up to max when instead of resisting turning the knob kept turning (did a full 360 and kept going). It has subsequently fell off and I can no longer hear the rumbling of the boiler to tell me the heating is on, despite the "mains" light being on. I tried putting the knob back on and twisting each way but to no avail.

    Any help would be much appreciated!!!

    You probably just damaged the plastic knob itself try turning it with a pliars

    Thermostat is 65 to 85 degrees only.
    It should still work.
    With or without plastic knob.
    If metal shaft turns 360 then the thermostat is goosed.
    It should normaly only turn from 12 o clock to 4 o clock position.
