Due to the many internal components at play for a boiler to work (the pressure valve, pump seal, diverter valve and gas supply, among many more), you should always consult a Gas Safe registered engineer to conduct work and repairs.
Due to the nature of a gas boiler, or any gas appliance, a heating engineer can perform boiler repair without causing potential harm to you and your property.
