Common issues with Vaillant boilers

Low boiler pressure (F22 Error Code)

One frequent issue with Vaillant boilers is low water pressure, indicated by the F22 error code. This can be caused by water leaks or excessive bleeding of radiators. To resolve this, you can repressurise your boiler by following the steps in your boiler manual. It’s important to check the pressure gauge on your boiler and ensure it reaches the recommended level of around 1 – 1.5 bar. If you notice a sudden drop in pressure, this could indicate a major leak, and it’s advisable to contact a professional immediately​​​​​​.

Frozen Condensate Pipe

During colder months, the condensate pipe of your Vaillant boiler can freeze, leading to blockages and automatic shutdowns to prevent damage or flooding. This can be remedied by pouring hot (but not boiling) water over the frozen pipe to thaw it. Resetting the boiler might be required afterwards. For more persistent issues, it’s best to call a Gas Safe engineer​​​​​​​​.

Boiler lockout (F28 & F29 Error Codes)

Boiler lockouts, often indicated by F28 and F29 error codes, are typically caused by a lack of gas supply, frozen condensate pipes, or ignition failures. It’s crucial to contact a Gas Safe engineer for these issues, as they involve gas and are not safe for DIY fixes. The engineer can check for leaks, analyze gas valve operation, and inspect ignition leads​​​​.

Faulty Gas Valve (F62 Error Code)

A stuck or malfunctioning gas valve can create dangerous situations by allowing continuous gas flow. This is indicated by the F62 error code and requires immediate attention from a Gas Safe engineer​​.

Over Activity

Over activity in Vaillant boilers, such as the ecoTEC Plus, could be due to a faulty thermostat or incorrect temperature settings, causing the boiler to fire up unexpectedly. Checking and adjusting the temperature levels and time settings is recommended. If issues persist, consult a professional​​​​.

Faulty pressure sensor or pump (F75 Error Code)

Vaillant ecoTEC boilers may display the F75 code, indicating issues with the pressure sensor or pump. This requires a professional to determine whether the pump, pressure sensor, or both need fixing or replacement. The cost of fixing these components varies, but it might be more economical to consider replacing an older boiler​​​​.

Ignition Problems (F29 Error Code)

Failed ignition, leading to no hot water or heating, is common and is often signified by the F29 error code. Causes can include a frozen condensate pipe, lack of gas supply, or defective spark electrodes. Professional diagnosis and repair are necessary for this issue​​​​.

Poor Flow Rate from Taps

If you experience a slow rate of water from taps or shower heads, it could be due to low pressure in the boiler, affecting the flow rate. This might be caused by a faulty pump or issues related to the height and position of water tanks, especially in older open-vent heating systems​​​​.

Regular Maintenance

To avoid these issues, it’s essential to have regular maintenance checks, including annual servicing by a qualified Gas Safe engineer, checking and topping up boiler pressure, ensuring correct settings, and inspecting for signs of corrosion, leakage, or damage​​.
