Again an obvious one but just in case - do you have an external flue cover and if so have you removed it? Our Truma heater works fine with it in place on hookup but on gas we get exactly the symptoms you've described when I forget to clip off the external flue cover . . . as I always do!

I had a similar problem.
I found that if I turned the thermostat down so that the boiler only came on at its low setting it stayed on but if the thermostat was set to full the boiler went to the high setting and went out after five to ten minutes.
All the burners would light together and stay lit. It turned out that the regulator was starting to fail and would still allow the boiler to run on its low setting but not on the high. A new regulator has fixed the problem.

thanks everybody for the suggestions; I'll have another look tomorrow, and does anybody know of any mobile engineers down this way?

You could try Premier at Chichester, they always appear to be very helpful.

After a month or so sat on the drive, I was getting our Stella ready for things, and was heating things up (or so I thought!). The heater seemed to work, with the orange light glowing, but after a short while there was a click & the red light came on.
It keeps doing this, and I have chekced things as per this thread
there is gas in the gaslow cylinder (and the spare red calor), and the hob gases work ok with no reduction in intensity. From the checklist put up by RayC it would seem to be the problem is either with the gas supply or a bocked flue. The gas supply is oK to elsewhere, and nothing looks unusual with the flue (it vents outside just by the boiler, and nothing is likely to block it).
So, any ideas? I'm not comptetent to go checking anything other than the basic stuff, so it looks like a specialist job? Does anybody know of any mobile service engineers that do Trumas? Premier Mh's at Birdham are listed as agents, and I know they would be able to do it, but I would prefer someone who could come out to it.
It has C603 on the boiler, with the serial number (1999 year), the handbook is C3402 / C6002
