No heat or hot water
This is a very common problem and can be caused for a variety of reasons. There may 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 very common problem!) or there could be a leak on your central heating system that needs to be fixed.
Radiators not getting hot enough
There could be air in the radiators which can sometimes be released by using a bleed key. Also, cold patches on the radiators can be caused by the system water being dirty. Your engineer may recommend a powerflush to resolve this. Also, there could be a problem with the radiator valve which may need replacing. It is always good to have thermostatic radiator valves on your radiators as you can control how warm your radiator will get depending on your preferred temperature.
This is a common problem in hard water areas such as London. Limescale builds up in your boiler and can damage the heat exchanger. It is possible to have a scale reducer fitted to the system which removes the scale from the system. Also, powerflushing will help to clean out system debris.
There could be sludge or debris in your system water which is then going through your boiler or there could be air in the system. Also, if the boiler is scaled up, this will cause it to make some funny noises too. Alternatively, it might be that the water pressure is too low.
Pilot light going out
This could be caused by a broken thermocouple or there could be a problem with the gas valve. Also, if the air seal is broken, a draught could blow out the pilot light. It may be that the pilot light needs to be cleaned as it may be blocked with debris.
The most common cause of a boiler losing pressure is a leak on the central heating system. Also, the pressure relief valve could be faulty and/or the expansion vessel failing (it could be both).
Frozen condensate pipe
Condensing boilers have a condensate pipe which takes away water from the boiler. From time to time, this can freeze which causes a blockage resulting in the boiler failing.
Thermostats can fail when they get older as they can become inaccurate in their readings. This means that they turn the boiler on and off at the wrong times when they are not supposed to.
From time to time, seals on boilers leak and need to be replaced. Faulty seals are the most common reasons for a leak.
Boiler keeps switching off
This could be caused by low water pressure, a blocked condensate pipe, air in the system or the pump not circulating the water in the system properly.
