It is always a good idea to be familiar with your homes boiler and the system, so when things are not working as they should, here are a few pointers which will help when you call an engineer to repair your Keston boiler.
If your Keston boiler or the system is not producing hot water, or heating the first thing to check is that the boiler has an electrical supply. This sounds like a simple thing to check, but it can be an immediate culprit to why the boiler isn’t working. Following this you should check that the water supply is on as it should and that there are no water leaks around the base of the boiler. If you notice any water leaks, you must call a qualified engineer immediately as this indicates a serious issue that needs rectifying as soon as possible. You should also check the flue on the boiler to ensure that there are no blockages following a cold snap of weather, as on occasions this can become blocked by frozen condensate water outside of the property. If the problem is with your heating, but not your hot water supply, then there can be a problem with your systems radiators. Bleed the radiators and remember to start at the furthest radiator away from the boiler itself, and work your way nearer to help pressurise the system. If you’re not confident in doing this, it’s always a good idea to ask your engineer to do this when they come to deal with the repair. Should this fail, check the boiler for any codes which should identify the problem. Below is a list of what they mean and what you should tell your engineer when you call to arrange the repair.
Keston boilers always display an error code to show what the issue is. Error codes only display if your system experiences one of the registered faults. These error codes will display in priority to all other information on the display. It’s important to remember that when a fault is detected your Keston boiler will go into block or lockout mode and stop functioning as a safety mechanism, which stops any issue of safety for the homeowner. Once you have identified the code, always remember to tell your Gas Safe qualified engineer when you call to arrange the repair.
F1 – Low boiler pressure
This means there is not enough water pressure. This Is a simple check on the boilers in-built pressure gauge. If this reads below 1 bar, the boilers water pressure is too low. On the Keston C40 & C55 combi boilers, the E44 error code lets you know there’s low water pressure.
High boiler pressure (E40)
Boiler pressure is too high when the gauge reaches the red area. This much pressure puts unnecessary strain on the unit and could lead to expensive damage.
Should the pressure be too low or high, this indicates that the pressure relief valve is faulty and requires a qualified engineer to repair this problem.
