Common issues specific to Potterton boilers
Low Boiler Pressure
Low pressure is a frequent issue with many boiler types, and Potterton boilers are no exception. When the pressure drops too low, the boiler’s failsafe mechanism activates, causing a lockout. This results in the boiler ceasing to function, leaving you without central heating or hot water. Regular monitoring and maintenance can help prevent this issue.
Boiler cutting off prematurely
A somewhat unique problem with Potterton boilers is that they may begin heating radiators but then switch off before reaching full temperature. This is often due to faulty sensors within the boiler, which miscommunicate the water temperature, leading to premature shutdown.
Cold Return Pipe
When the water in the central heating system’s return pipe remains cold, it suggests an issue with water circulation. This can affect all boiler types, including Potterton’s. Identifying and addressing circulation problems early is key to maintaining an efficient heating system.
The fan in a Potterton boiler is crucial for removing harmful gases. If the fan isn’t recognised or its signal is intermittent, the boiler may fail to start, or the fan might switch on and off repeatedly. This can affect the overall efficiency and safety of the boiler.
Diverter Valve Problems
Especially in older Potterton models like the Promax, Suprima, and Profile, issues with the diverter valve can lead to either no hot water or no central heating. The diverter valve, responsible for directing hot water to taps, showers, or radiators, can become blocked or stuck, disrupting normal operation.
At Heat Quick Direct, we understand these common issues and have the expertise to diagnose and address them efficiently, ensuring your Potterton boiler operates reliably and efficiently.

Our repair approach for Potterton boilers
Diagnosing and Addressing Fault Codes
In our approach to repairing Potterton boilers at Heat Quick Direct, the first step is always a thorough diagnosis. Potterton boilers display specific fault codes for various issues. For instance, E15 or E09 indicates a faulty gas valve connection, E119 signifies low boiler pressure, and E161 or E160 points to fan problems. We use these codes as a starting point to identify and resolve underlying issues, ensuring precise and effective repairs.
Specialized Fault Resolution
Our Gas Safe engineers are skilled in resolving specific Potterton boiler faults. For issues like NTC thermistor faults, which can lead to overheating, we conduct detailed inspections and replace components as necessary. Similarly, for common problems like the boiler turning off prematurely, indicated by an E20 fault code, we check for limescale buildup or faulty NTC thermistors and employ solutions like Powerflushing when required.
Handling Complex System Issues
We are adept at handling more complex system-related issues such as cold return pipes or diverter valve failures. Our engineers assess the entire system, from pump functionality to blockages, ensuring every aspect of your Potterton boiler operates optimally. This holistic approach helps us address not just the symptoms but the root cause of issues, providing long-term solutions.
Safety and Compliance
Safety is paramount in all our repair work. We ensure that each repair complies with the latest safety standards and Potterton specifications. For critical issues like flame outages or gas supply problems, our engineers meticulously check for blockages, faulty components, and ensure consistent gas flow.
