Yeah you’ll be fine considering the circuit is rcd protected but it’s not something you want to leave too long.

I did get a guy out and he was like "...yeah this is an electric boiler; there's not much that can really go wrong with it" Warnock . I didn't tell him that I'd already bought a carbon monoxide detector. Lampoon

Fart Smelly Cheers. Our plan is to replace the kitchen in a few months anyway, so hopefully it'll last until then.

Monty Chuckle Superb. Sound

Nothing wrong with having a CO detector. Any fossil fuel can give off CO fumes if burning incorrectly. Can also get fumes from neighbours etc.

Wouldn’t bother getting it fixed, probably cost more than a new one.

Switch off all your radiators bar one and manually put the pressure and temperature up. Sometimes works as a diy powerflush.

Water is coming up from my shower plug when the washing machine is on and smells quite rank.

is that just a case of blocked drains that can be sorted with unblocker stuff?

Aye i'd try using a chemical unblocker. If that doesnt work you'll need to go manual.

I had the same problem a few months ago. I unscrewed the u-bend under the sink and there was this gunk blocking the pipe up that I just poked out with one of those bendy things.

If you put that drain unblocking shit down overnight, it'll probably dissolve it.
