Some common boiler faults we can help you with:
If you are experiencing any of the faults listed below contact our team straight away for a rapid response boiler repair in Darlington.
No heat or hot water – This is a very common problem and can be brought about for numerous reasons. There might be no pilot light, a problem with a diaphragm, an airlock or a motorised valve may have failed. Also, it could be that your thermostat is not turned up high enough (a common problem!) or there could be a leak on your central heating system that should be fixed.
Leaking Boilers – From time to time, seals on boilers leak and need to get replaced. Faulty seals are the most widespread factors behind a leak.
Banging Noises –There could be sludge or debris in your system water which is then going through your boiler or there might be air in the system. Additionally, if the boiler is scaled up, this could cause it to make some interesting noises too. Alternatively, it might be that the water pressure is not high enough.
Pilot light going out – This could be caused by a damaged thermocouple or there might be a problem with the gas valve. Also, if the air seal is damaged, a draught could blow out the pilot light. It might be that the pilot light has to be cleaned out as it may be blocked with debris.
Losing pressure – The commonest cause of a boiler losing pressure is a leak on the central heating system. Likewise, the pressure relief valve could be faulty and/or the expansion vessel failing (it may be both).
Frozen condensate pipe – Frozen condensate pipe: Condensing boilers have a condensate pipe which takes away water from the boiler. From time to time, this can freeze which then causes a blockage resulting in the boiler failing.
Thermostat problems – Thermostats may fail when they age as they can become inaccurate in their readings. This means that they turn the boiler on / off at the wrong times when they aren’t supposed to.
Kettling – This is a very common problem in hard water areas such as Darlington. Limescale accumulates in your boiler and can damage the heat exchanger. It is possible to have a scale reducer fitted to the system which takes out the scale from the system. Also, powerflushing will help to clean out system debris.
Boiler keeps switching off – This might be due to low water pressure, a blocked condensate pipe, air in the system or the pump not circulating the water in the system appropriately.
