If it’s one of these issues then simply follow your gas boiler manufacturers instructions for dealing with these problems. If it’s not any of the above then you need to call a Gas Safe registered and qualified boiler technician to examine the situation safely.

2. Boiler Leaking Or Dripping

Drips and leaks are an obvious indicator of a probably far more severe situation, however, except if you are qualified to do so you should not make an attempt to determine the situation by yourself. Most of the reasons for your boiler to have drips or leaks will most likely require an authorised boiler technician to fix them. Drips and leaks are frequently a result of a faulty pump seal or pressure valve. When it’s repaired, you may have to lower your boiler’s pressure, your boiler technician will be able to advise you on this.

3. Odd Noises Coming From The Boiler

Probably the most noticeable of all boiler problems is when your gas boiler begins to generate odd sounds, such as gurgling or banging. It’s probably that air is trapped inside of the system is the issue, however, it might also be due to low water pressure. However, the situation can also be even more serious, like your boiler reaching the end of its life and you need a new boiler installed.

4. Pilot Light Is Not Lit

The solution for an extinguished pilot light is simple, simply relight it. However, right before doing that you need to take a look at your system to determine if there is a much more serious issue first. Problems you might identify include:

  • A nearby draft putting out the pilot light.
  • Build up in close proximity to or around the {pilot}light that extinguishes it.
  • The supply of gas might be halted by a thermocouple that needs repair.

If you do find something that you think may be a problem then you need to call your local boiler technician to examine and if called for fix even before you attempt to relight the pilot light.

5. Boiler Has Low Pressure

A loss of pressure in your gas boiler can be a signal of a problem with your heating system itself. You are able to check the pressure of your boiler by looking at the pressure gauge and ensuring that it’s more than 1. If it’s not, then there is a problem somewhere inside of your heating system which needs to get looked into by an authorised boiler technician.

6. Problems With Your Thermostat

An incorrect thermostat can cause several issues, so it’s critical to determine a routine schedule (at minimum once a quarter) to make sure that your thermostat is operating as intended. It’s an easy check. You simply start off by making sure the thermostat is placed in the proper position and has the right setting and that your boiler switches off if you reduce the temperature setting and back on again if you increase the temperature setting.
