My boiler is igniting but the flame goes out after a minute, and doesn't heat any of the rads..

It has a knob that has options 0 - 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - X - M on, it's always on 5 but i turned to X and it reignited, but still went out a minute later.

Anyone knowledgeable with boilers? I don't want Christmas to be ruined already...

What kind of boiler? Is it rated high enough to drive the additional two radiators?

First have you bled the system properly?

If it's a combi, did you repressurise it?

If you isolated it while you were working on the radiators, did you open all the valves again afterwards?

ah, if you've been fitting rads you need to bleed air out of the system - including at the pump. Your pump should have a nice big roundel on it somewhere that'll help you bleed it. Do the rads, do the pump, ignite the boiler - repeat potentially quite a few times and fingers crossed it will eventually work.
