Signs your oil boiler needs repairing...

Often your boiler could show signs which could indicate it needs repairing. Although these signs have not caused a major issue, it is good to make sure it gets looked at by a professional heating engineer. Some of these signs include:

- It takes longer than usual for the heating to turn on

- Your oil boiler turns off automatically

- There are cold spots on your radiator

- Sudden increase in your heating water bills

If you have noticed these signs, make sure to contact a heating engineer to come and have a look at your oil boiler before it causes any further issues.

Common Oil Boiler Faults

Incorrect oil boiler pressure

Oil boilers need to be at the correct pressure in order to operate correctly. Incorrect pressure can even cause your oil boiler to not switch on. Oil boilers typically operate between 1-3 bar, with the ideal pressure usually being around 1.3 bar. If you suspect too high or too low pressure in your boiler system - get in touch with our expert oil boiler repair technicians.

Condensate pipe blockage

Condensate blockages caused by freezing are a common occurrence in oil boilers during the winter months of the year. We carry out defrosting and can also prevent freezing from occurring in the future. 

Fan Fault

Issues with your oil boiler fan often lead to your oil boiler not turning on. Due to the fact that the fan in your system acts as a safety mechanism, it is important to call a reputable oil boiler repair service as soon as you suspect a fan issue. 

Air pressure switch fault

As mentioned, in the event of a fan failure, your oil boiler will not turn on as a safety precaution. The air pressure switch is how your boiler checks whether your fan is functioning correctly. Your boiler not turning on could also be the result of a faulty air pressure switch. 

Radio Frequency issues

If your boiler is working is not responding to the thermostat, it could be a sign that your oil boiler FR transmitter is faulty or there could be a radio frequency crossover.

Printed Circuit board (PCB)

The PCB acts as the brain of your boiler and is what causes your oil boiler to shut down in cases where there is a dangerous issue with your oil boiler. Sometimes, these PCB units can be faulty and cause your oil boiler to shut down even when there are no issues throughout your system. One of our qualified oil boiler engineers will be able to diagnose a faulty PCB in your oil boiler system.
