Hi just wondered if you could help with this problem. Mum had her gas fire serviced about 2 months ago and the council gas and heating contractors stuck a warning sticker on the front saying do not use. I contacted the council on numerous occassions because mum kept taking the front off the fire and worrying about the flame (back burner). I was worried she might turn it on so I took the knob off but mum found it and tried to put it back. The council advised me that the fire had been isolated and that mum could not turn it on. The council has now told us that the whole central heating system will need replacing but they cannot do this because they have no money??!!!! Mum relies on the fire all the time during the winter months and without it she will have to have the heating on 24 -7. The other day I went round and mum had her heating on and it was like a greeenhouse - rather than just putting the fire on to take the chill off. As mum has got central heating and hot water the council do not see this as an emergency - but I know just how much mum uses the fire and I know this is going to cause a lot of upset. Is there anything I can do?
