Most Common Potterton Boiler Issues

Radiators not reaching the correct temperature

When your radiators are not reaching the correct temperature or are only partially heating up, it indicates the presence of trapped air in the system. To resolve this issue, you need to bleed the radiators to release the excess air and restore proper functioning

Boiler pressure low (showing error code E119)

A sudden drop in boiler pressure signifies a potential leak in the system. Immediately turn off the water supply and contact a Gas Safe registered engineer. However, gradual drops in pressure can be addressed without professional assistance.

If you notice the E119 error code or a pressure reading below 1 bar on the pressure gauge, it indicates low system pressure. Ideally, the pressure should be around 1.5 bars. You can increase the boiler pressure yourself using our exclusive guide, which provides step-by-step instructions and helpful tips.

No hot water from your taps

If you’re experiencing a lack of hot water from your taps, it’s likely due to a problem with the diverter valve. This valve controls whether hot water is directed to the radiators or showers. If it becomes stuck, only one can receive hot water, leaving you without hot water for showers.

To address this issue, it’s important to have a Gas Safe registered engineer examine the diverter valve and determine if it needs repair or replacement.

The condensate pipe is frozen (showing error code E133)

The condensate pipe is responsible for directing acidic water away from the boiler. In colder months, this pipe can freeze, causing a blockage and resulting in a boiler lockout.

If your condensate pipe has frozen, you can thaw it yourself by following the instructions provided in Boiler Guide’s instructional guide, which includes a video. However, if you feel uncomfortable doing this, it’s advisable to seek assistance from a Gas Safe registered engineer.

Thawing a frozen condensate pipe

If your condensate pipe has frozen, you don’t need to call in a heating engineer! Boiler Guide provides an instructional guide (with video) on how to thaw the pipe. However, if you feel at all uncomfortable attempting this yourself, please consult with a Gas Safe registered engineer for assistance.


Boiler is turning off on its own

If your boiler repeatedly shuts off, it could be due to low water pressure, thermostat issues, or a closed valve preventing proper functioning. If you’re unable to resolve the issue yourself or unsure of the underlying problem, we highly recommend contacting a Gas Safe registered engineer for professional assistance.

Remember, when dealing with boiler problems, safety should always be a priority. Consulting a qualified professional ensures that the issues are correctly diagnosed and resolved, minimizing any risks or further damage to the system.
