FBH- Has yours fired up yet (UK)?

Two things I love about this year, one being Christmas hols and the other - that old perennial favourite on this site, tales of woe regarding fuel burning heaters.
What will be the most common question?
Will it be:-

1. " I have seen lots of smoke coming from under the nearside wheel arch, what is it ?

Or

2. "My FBH wont start, how do you reset it?"

Or.....Wait for it.....

3. "What is it and do I have one"

So who in the UK will claim to be the first for the FBH firing up as winter approaches?

Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

My wheel arch was smoking the other morning, and thanks to browsing this website I didn't Shocked and jump on the forum to say "my car's on fire!!! as I already knew what the little smoking pipe was.

Last year on F2's there was a recall on FBH's due to fire risk - they took them out in November and replaced them in the Spring. Great.

Rich, is it because you have made no outgoing calls on it, mine is with O2, and was told that if I make no outgoing calls on the PAYG sim they would disconnect at about 6months. Just took mine out and called home, then reinstalled.

Calender reminder for 5months Mr. Green

Mine has'nt done anything but I do live in the sunny south!!!! When we are talking about smoke here, is it a mild amount or a "lets produce smoke and hide the fleet" amount? Whistle

Mine fired up this morning, which is good, as I had to survive last winter without it until the Wiggs magic to
touch fixed it.
