The Most Common Boiler Issues
It’s the middle of winter and your boiler has stopped working – great. Just what you need. Not only is it cold, but now you have to find a reputable plumber to come and take a look at it. And, of course, hope that it’s something simple that can be fixed without breaking the bank. This plumber in Milton Keynes can tell you all about these issues!
One of the most common boiler issues is that the pilot light has gone out. If this happens, simply relight the pilot light according to the instructions in your user manual. If you can’t find your user manual, a quick Google search should give you all the information you need.
Another common issue is that the boiler is making strange noises. This is usually caused by build-up of limescale and dirt in the pipes and can be easily fixed by bleeding the radiators. Simply turn on all of the radiators in your house and then bleed them one by one until water starts running freely from each valve.
If your boiler seems to be working but isn’t heating up your home, then there could be a problem with the thermostat. First, check that it is set to the correct temperature. If it is, then you may need to calibrate it according to the instructions in your user manual.
If your boiler suddenly stops working, then the first thing you should do is check the fuse box. If a fuse has blown, simply replace it with a new one and see if that fixes the problem. If not, then there may be a more serious issue and you will need to call a qualified engineer.
