Common problems for boiler repairs
Is it difficult for you to turn off the boiler? Does it stop on its own? Is your boiler leaking? Is the pressure extremely low or very high? Well, aside from the problem that your boiler is not working efficiently, it still has potential health risks and should only be treated by a professional. At Emergency Boiler Repair London, we strongly believe in the need to provide an excellent level of customer service. Here we list some common boiler faults that we can help you solve.
No Heating or Hot Water – This is a common problem that occurs for a variety of reasons. Your thermostat may not be very high or there may be a leak in the central heating system that needs to be repaired.
Radiators do not heat up: there may be air in the radiators which can be released with a tap. Cold spots on radiators are caused by water dirt in the system. Your boiler repair service technician will recommend an “electric shock” to resolve this problem.
Knocking noises – Dirt or air may be in the system. Raising the scale of the boiler will make strange noises. Alternatively, the water pressure may also be extremely low.
Indicator light off: This is due to a broken thermocouple and there may be a problem with the gas valve. If the air seal is broken, a draft can extinguish the pilot.
Pressure Loss – The common cause of a boiler’s pressure loss is a leak in the central heating system. The pressure relief valve can fail, possibly leading to failure or inefficient operation of the expansion tank.
Frozen Condensate Pipe – Condensing boilers have a condensate pipe that drains water from the boiler. This can freeze, causing blockage and therefore boiler failure.
Thermostat Problems – Thermostats can stop working as they age and give inaccurate readings. This means that the boiler will turn on and off at the wrong time.
Leaking Boilers – Boiler gaskets can leak from time to time and should be replaced. Bad seals are a common reason for leaks.
The boiler keeps stopping: this happens due to a blocked condensate pipe, low water pressure, air in the system or the pump does not circulate water properly through the system. Our emergency boiler repair London engineers will try to resolve these issues.
