Most Common Boiler Repair Faults
No heat or hot water
This is very common and can be caused by a number of problems. There may be an airlock or a motorised valve may have failed. Also, it could be that your thermostat is faulty or not turned up high enough, no pilot light, a problem with a diaphragm, or there could be a leak from your central heating system that needs fixing.
Radiators not getting hot
There could be air trapped in the radiators which can be released by using a radiator bleed key. Also, cold patches on the radiators can be caused by sludge in the system and water being dirty. Also, there could be a problem with a radiator valve which may need replacing.
There could be sludge or debris in your central heating system which is then going through your boiler or there could be air in the system. Also, if the boiler is scaled up, this will cause it to make some funny noises too. It could also be that the water pressure is too low.
Pilot light going out
This could be caused by a faulty gas valve or broken thermocouple. Also, if the boiler case seal is damaged, a draught could blow out the pilot light.
The most common cause for a boiler losing pressure is a leak on the central heating system. The pressure relief valve could be faulty and/or the expansion vessel failing (it could be both).
Frozen condensate pipe
Condensing boilers have a condensate pipe that takes away water from the boiler. This can freeze which causes a blockage resulting in the boiler failing.
Thermostats can fail when they get older as they can become inaccurate in their readings. This means that they turn the boiler on and off at the wrong times when they are not supposed to.
From time to time, seals on boilers leak and need to be replaced. Faulty seals are the most common reasons for a leak.
Boiler keeps switching off
This could be caused by low water pressure, a blocked condensate pipe, air in the system or the pump not circulating the water in the system properly.
