Common Glow-worm boiler issues

At Heat Quick Direct, we’re well-versed in tackling the typical challenges that come with Glow-Worm boilers. Our expertise allows us to quickly diagnose and resolve these issues, ensuring your boiler operates at peak efficiency.

No Heating or Hot Water

One of the most frequent issues we encounter is the lack of heating or hot water. This problem can stem from various sources such as a malfunctioning thermostat, valve failures, low water levels, or blockages in the system. Our first step is to check that all valves are operational and then assess the thermostat and boiler pressure. If these components are functioning correctly, we move on to examining the pump and flue for any obstructions. Our skilled engineers are equipped to handle these issues and ensure your boiler returns to its optimal state.

Low boiler pressure

Low boiler pressure, often indicated by a reading below 1 bar on the gauge, can hamper your central heating system’s performance. This issue might arise from sediment buildup or a leak within the system. Our approach involves a thorough inspection to identify any leaks and, if necessary, repressurizing the system safely. We aim to maintain the pressure within the optimal range of 1 to 2 bars for efficient operation.

Frozen Condensate Pipe

During the colder months, a common issue is the freezing of condensate pipes. This problem can lead to gurgling noises and system shutdowns to prevent damage. We tackle this by carefully thawing the pipe and clearing any blockages, ensuring smooth operation and preventing future freezing.

Boiler lockouts

Boiler lockouts can occur due to various reasons, including water temperature discrepancies. When confronted with a boiler lockout, our technicians first inspect the sensors on the flow pipe, return pipe, and burner. We ensure that the PCB receives accurate readings from these components, as any discrepancy can trigger a lockout. Our goal is to swiftly identify and rectify the underlying issue, restoring your boiler’s functionality.

Lack of Hot Water Despite Boiling Boiler

Occasionally, boilers may produce boiling water without supplying hot water to taps or showers, usually due to a diverter valve issue. Our engineers are adept at diagnosing and resolving problems with the diverter valve, ensuring a consistent supply of hot water throughout your home.

  • Internal Component Check: Critical components like the heat exchanger, burner, main injector, and safety devices are inspected and cleaned to ensure optimal functioning​​.
  • Gas Pressure and Flow Adjustment: We assess and adjust the gas pressure and flow settings, a crucial step for efficient boiler operation.
  • Flue and Pipework Inspection: The flue terminals and water and gas pipework are checked for blockages and wear and tear.
  • Operational Test: Finally, we switch on your boiler to ensure it operates correctly and the temperature controls are effective.
