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

1. No Hot Water – Essentially, your gas boiler isn’t doing its job anytime this happens, and there are a couple of probable causes.

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

The easiest and first points that you can inspect are the thermostat and the boilers water pressure. If it is one of these problems then follow your gas boiler manufacturers guidelines for correcting these situations. If it is not any of the issues above then you ought to call a Gas Safe registered and qualified boiler engineer to look into the issue safely.

2. Your Boiler Is Dripping Or Leaking

Drips and leaks are a common indicator of a likely far more significant issue, but except when you are trained to do so you shouldn’t have a go at to figure out the issue for yourself. A lot of the causes for your boiler to be having leaks or drips will call for an authorised boiler engineer to fix them. Leaks and drips are frequently due to a malfunctioning pressure valve or pump seal. After it is repaired, you may need to lower your boiler’s pressure, your boiler engineer will gladly advise you on how to do it.

3. Odd Noises Coming From Your Boiler

Possibly one of the most obvious of all boiler situations is whenever your gas boiler begins to produce weird sounds, for instance, banging or gurgling. It’s very likely that air is trapped inside the heating system is the problem, but it could possibly also be because of low water pressure. However, the issue can also be more serious, like your boiler getting to the end of its life and you need a new boiler fitted.

4. Extinguished Pilot Light

The remedy for an extinguished pilot light is simple, simply relight it. However, before trying that you need to take a look at your heating system to establish if there is a much more serious problem first. Problems you could find include:

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

If you do find something that you think could be an issue then you need to get in touch with your local gas engineer to look into and if called for deal with before you make an attempt to relight the pilot light.

5. Boiler Has Low Pressure

Loss of pressure in the gas boiler might be an indicator of an issue with your central heating system itself. You can easily check out the pressure of your boiler by taking a look at the pressure gauge and making sure that it is more than 1. If it is not, then there is an issue someplace inside your central heating system which really needs to get checked out by an authorised gas engineer.

6. Problems With Your Thermostat

An inaccurate thermostat can create several problems, so it is very important to determine a routine schedule (at the very least once a quarter) to be sure that the thermostat is operating as it should. It’s a quick test. You simply start by making sure the thermostat is placed in the proper position and has the correct setting and that the boiler turns off if you decrease the temperature setting and then back on once more if you raise the temperature setting.
