Of course, there are a lot of good conveniences to having central heating with a gas boiler, but now and then, you are more than likely to run across a situation.

Even though it is probable that the problem you have may be unique, the vast majority of the time you are most likely to realise that your boiler issue is a general one. This guarantees that finding the best solution will be much easier and quicker than what you thought.

A good deal of boiler issues can essentially be prevented by having your boiler serviced often, we highly recommend a minimum of yearly.

The Six Most Common Gas Boiler Repair Issues

  1. No Hot Water
  2. Your Boiler Dripping or Leaking
  3. Strange Noises Coming Out Of Your Boiler
  4. Pilot Light Is Not Lit
  5. Boiler Has Low Pressure
  6. Issues With The Thermostat

1. No Hot Water – Ultimately, your boiler isn’t carrying out its function whenever this occurs, and there are a few potential causes.

  • An airlock or diaphragm is damaged.
  • There is a low level of water.
  • There might be some thing wrong with the thermostat.
  • One of the motorised valves has failed.

The first and easiest 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 taking care of these issues. If it is none of the above then you need to call a Gas Safe registered and qualified boiler engineer to take a look at the problem safely.

2. Your Boiler Dripping Or Leaking

Drips and leaks are a common indicator of an essentially much more severe problem, but except when you are qualified to do so you should not attempt to identify the problem by yourself. A lot of the causes for the boiler to have leaks or drips will likely require an authorised boiler engineer to fix them. Leaks and drips are often brought on by a damaged pump seal or pressure valve. When it is repaired, 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 Out Of Your Boiler

Maybe the most apparent of all boiler issues is when your boiler starts to make odd sounds, such as gurgling or banging. It’s probably that air is trapped inside the heating system is the issue, but it could possibly additionally be because of low water pressure. However, the problem can also be more serious, such as the boiler reaching the end of its life and you need a brand-new boiler fitted.

4. Pilot Light Is Not Lit

The solution for an unlit pilot light is simple, just 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 issue first. Issues you could spot include:

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

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

5. Boiler Has Low Pressure

A loss of pressure in the boiler can be a signal of a problem with your heating system itself. You can easily check the pressure of the boiler by taking a look at the gauge and ensuring that it is more than 1. If it is not, then there’s a problem elsewhere inside your heating system which really needs to be checked out by an authorised gas engineer.

6. Issues With The Thermostat

An unreliable thermostat may cause several issues, so it is important to establish a regular plan (at least once a quarter) to make sure that the thermostat is functioning as intended. It’s a quick test. You just simply begin by making certain the thermostat is in the proper position and has the correct setting and that the boiler turns off if you reduce the temperature setting and then back on again if you raise the temperature setting.

In Summary

The above issues are the main ones that our heating engineers are called for. If you are in any doubt then it is safer to get in touch with an authorised heating engineer who is on the Gas Safe register to take a look and advise you.
