Common Boiler Faults
Before calling us check that you have gas and that gas hasn't been turned off accidentally, you have power to your boiler and you have tried resetting
your boiler. Sometimes switching the power off to your heating system (boiler and any external controls) can act as a reset. Check your boiler manual to
see if you have everything set correctly at the boiler and that any external controls are asking the boiler to switch on. Try these simple checks as your
boiler may not need repairing.
Checking your pressure gauge.
Check the water pressure gauge/indicator, which is normally on the front of a combination boiler or in an airing cupboard near an expansion vessel.
For most boilers, this should be set around the 1 bar when the boiler and heating system have not been on and the system is 'cold' and is sometimes shown
by an indicator needle. If your boiler pressure is below 0.5bar this can cause your boiler to lockout. Try increrasing the pressure to 1 or 1.5bar and
reset your boiler.
Frozen condensate waste pipes.
In cold weather your boilers condensate pipe can freeze, even if insulated. If this happens then your boiler will automatically lockout and leave you
without central heating or hot water. If your condensate pipe is frozen you may hear some bubbling sounds coming from the boiler or the pipe itself.
To try and thaw the pipe (normally a white pipe exiting your boiler and running outside to an external drain/soakaway) :
Warm some water in the kettle (do not use boiling water as this could crack the pipe), stand away from the pipe and gently pour the warm water onto the
frozen pipe for its complete length and repeat until pipe has thawed. You could also wrap towels/sheets along the length of your boilers condensate pipe
before applying the warm water to it. Don't forget to reset your boiler before you try to get it going again.
A common 'boiler fault' can be because of low batteries in any wireless device you may have to control your boiler, these are becoming more and more
common on central heating and boiler systems.
Most wireless room thermostats/programmers take 2 AA bateries, try changing the batteries and if necessary follow any reset procedure.
