The 6 Most Common Gas Boiler Repair Issues

  1. No Hot Water
  2. Your Boiler Is Dripping or Leaking
  3. Strange Noises Coming From Your Boiler
  4. Extinguished Pilot Light
  5. Low Pressure Boiler
  6. Problems With The Thermostat

1. No Hot Water – Ultimately, your boiler isn’t carrying out its job anytime this happens, and there are a few probable reasons.

  • An airlock or diaphragm is degraded.
  • There is a low level of water.
  • There could be something wrong with the thermostat.
  • One of the motorised valves has broken.

The easiest and first things that you can inspect are the thermostat and the boilers water pressure. If it is any one of these issues then simply follow the boiler manufacturers guidelines for fixing these situations. If it is not any of the above then you should call a Gas Safe registered and qualified boiler engineer to look into the problem safely.

2. Your Boiler Is Leaking Or Dripping

Drips and leaks are a common indicator of a likely much more severe problem, but except if you are trained to do so you should not attempt to identify the problem by yourself. A lot of the reasons for the boiler to be having drips or leaks will likely call for a trained boiler engineer to fix them. Leaks and drips are often brought on by a malfunctioning pump seal or pressure valve. After it is replaced, you might need to turn down your boiler’s pressure, the boiler engineer will be able to advise you on this.

3. Strange Noises Coming From Your Boiler

Maybe one of the most noticeable of all boiler situations is when your boiler begins to produce weird noises, for instance, gurgling or banging. It’s very likely that air is trapped inside the heating system is the problem, but it could additionally be because of low water pressure. However, the problem can also be more serious, including the boiler getting to the end of its life and you need a new boiler fitted.

4. Extinguished Pilot Light

The remedy for an unlit pilot light is simple, simply relight it. However, right before trying that you need to take a look at the heating system to establish if there’s an even more dangerous problem first. Problems you might spot include:

  • A close by draft putting out the pilot light.
  • Build up close-by or around the {pilot}light which puts it out.
  • The supply of the gas may be halted by a thermocouple that needs repair.

If you do see something that you think might be a problem then you need to get in touch with your local gas engineer to look into and if required fix before you try to relight the pilot light.

5. Low Pressure Boiler

A loss of pressure in the boiler may be an indication of a problem with your heating system itself. You can easily check out the pressure of the boiler by taking a look at the gauge and making sure that it is over 1. If it is not, then there’s a problem someplace inside your heating system which really needs to get checked out by a trained gas engineer.

6. Problems With The Thermostat

An inaccurate thermostat might cause several issues, so it is critical to set a regular schedule (at the very least once a quarter) to make sure that the thermostat is operating as it should. It’s a quick test. You simply begin by making sure the thermostat is in the proper position and has the right setting and that the boiler switches off when you reduce the temperature setting and then back on again when you raise the temperature setting.
