Your boiler will usually display a signal that it has detected a fault on the control panel, by either a fault code or a red or green flashing light. Both signals indicate that your boiler needs checking and repairing.
Some of the most common boiler faults which could be triggering the need to reset it frequently include:
The boiler lockout mode usually occurs if either:
An overheated boiler can be a result of the boiler not having enough water pressure which can occur for various reasons, such as a build-up of sludge in the system leading to mechanical failure, a worn pump or a substantial blockage. If your boiler becomes too hot, you should call a gas-safe engineer immediately.
Boilers can have problems igniting if:
However, if you operate your heating system by a coin meter or you pay by card then a reduction in gas flow could be causing an ignition problem. This should be easily amendable by adding credit to your meter.
When your boiler goes into lockout mode and you’re experiencing issues such as those mentioned above, the first thing to do is try resetting your boiler.
The appearance and positioning of reset buttons can vary on different boilers. To locate the reset button on your boiler, try looking for a press button that has a flame, flashing light, or a cross through it. The button is should be clearly labelled “RESET”. Refer to your boilers instruction manual if you can't find the reset button, which should include a detailed diagram of your specific model.
Only press the reset button once; repeatedly pressing the button may damage the control panel, leading to an expensive repair.
Hold the reset button for 3 seconds before releasing. If your boiler displays a flashing green light, it should have successfully reset. If a fault code is still showing or a red light is continuing to flash, you'll need to contact a gas-safe engineer for further assistance with diagnosing the problem.
If resetting your boiler becomes a regular chore and you find that you're experiencing reoccurring boiler faults, it might be time to consider installing a new boiler.
