Self diagnose your boiler faults.
Vaillant is one of the Most Popular Boiler Brands in the UK. TVaillant boilers are known for being very reliable and high performing, dating back to 1874. Vaillant only have a hand-full of common faults. If a fault code is displayed, call us and get a boiler repair.
The F75 fault is typically the most popular vaillant failure and the fault is either the water pressure sensor or faulty pump. If you have this fault, you'll need a new pressure sensor, or a new pump.
Another common Vaillant fault is F28 and F29. These two fault codes are common in winter when the condensate pipe is frozen.
One of the most common Vaillant boiler faults is a leaking boiler. Leaks can be a nightmare because not only can they cause water serious damage to your home, it can also cause damage to the electrical components inside the boiler.
A boiler leak should be taken as an emergency, If you find a leak you should call a qualified heating engineer in Northampton.
No heatnig or hot water can mean that there is something wrong with your Vaillant boiler. Your boiler can stop providing you heating or hot water for a few reasons such as:
It's always best to call a boiler engineer to come and visit to inspect the boiler and resolve the issue.
|Fault/Error Code||Possible Cause|
|F00/F0||Heating Flow Temperature Sensor interruption or Heating Flow NTC Thermistor fault.|
|F01/F1||Return temperature sensor interruption NTC (Negative Temperature Coefficient) plug not plugged in or has come loose.|
|F10||Flow Negative Temperature Coefficient short circuit - NTC defective, short circuit in cable harness.|
|F11||Return Negative Temperature Coefficient short circuit - NTC defective, short circuit in cable harness.|
|F20||Safety switch-off - Temperature limiter Incorrect earth connection between cable harness and boiler. - Loose connection?|
|F22||Safety switch-off - Low water pressure, No water pressure, or water pressure is too low in the boiler. - Cable to the pump or water pressure sensor loose.|
|F23||Safety switch-off - Temperature difference. Pump blocked or insufficient pump output. Air in boiler. Temperature too great.|
|F24||Safety switch-off - Temperature difference. Pump blocked or poor pump performance. Air in boiler. Temperature is rising to fast.|
|F25||Safety switch-off - Temperature difference. Break in the plug connection for optional flue gas safety thermostat. Temperature too high.|
|F26||Fault - Gas valve without function or Gas valve stepper motor not connected. Plug on the PCB not plugged in correctly.|
|F27||Safety switch-off - Flame simulation - Moisture on the electronics. Flame monitor defective. Gas solenoid valve leaking.|
|F28||Start-up failure - Ignition unsuccessful. Air in gas or gas flow pressure too low. Condensate pipe blocked. Fault on the gas valve or plug on PCB incorrectly plugged in.|
|F29||Operation failure - Re-ignition unsuccessful. Gas supply stopped or faulty earthing of boiler. Condensate pipe blocked. Transformer has spark failure.|
|F32||Fan fault - Plug at fan not correctly plugged in or Fan blocked. Sensor defective. Plug on PCB not correctly plugged in.|
|F49||eBUS fault - Short circuit on eBUS. What is eBUS? - eBUS is a communication protocol used to manage your Vaillant boiler.|
|F61||Gas valve regulation - Short circuit/short to earth.|
|F62||Gas valve switch-off - Delayed shutdown of gas valve. Gas valve leaking or Electronics defective.|
|F63||EEPROM error - Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory error. Electronics defective.|
|F64||Electronics or NTC fault|
|F65||Electronics overheating - Temperature fault. Electronics defective.|
|F67||Electronics or flame fault - Implausible flame signal or Electronics defective.|
|F68||Unstable flame - Air in gas, gas flow pressure too low, wrong air ratio.|
|F70||Invalid DSN - Invalid device specific number.|
|F71||Fault flow temperature sensor - Flow temperature sensor positioned incorrectly at supply pipe (CHECK) or Flow temperature sensor defective (New Sensor).|
|F72||Flow/return NTC fault - Negative Temperature Coefficient temperature difference too great or sensor defective. (New Sensor).|
|F73||Water pressure sensor - Sensor signal in the wrong range - too low. Short circuit of water pressure sensor or water pressure sensor defective. (New Sensor).|
|F74||Water pressure sensor - Sensor signal outside correct range - too high. Short-circuited at 5 V/24 or internal fault in water pressure sensor. Water pressure sensor defective. (New Sensor).|
|F75||Water pressure sensor - No pressure detection when starting pump. Water pressure sensor defective. (New Sensor). Check adjustable bypass.|
|F76||Overheating - Protection on primary heat exchanger has responded. Primary heat exchanger defective.|
|F77||No response from flue - Condensate pump fault or condensate pump defective.|
|F78||Interruption to DHW - Domestic hot water system outlet sensor at external controller UK link box is connected.|
|F83||Flow/return temperature sensor - Temperature change fault. When the burner starts, the temperature change registered non-existent or too small or not enough water in the boiler.|
|F84||Flow/return temperature sensor - Temperature difference implausible. Error with flow/return temperature sensor temperature changing error.|
|F85||Flow/return temperature sensor - Error with flow and return temperature, sensor incorrectly fitted . Fitted to the same pipe or wrong pipe.|
|F92||Coding resistor fault - he coding resistor on the PCB does not match. Check and enter the correct gas family.|
|F93||Gas group fault - Wrong gas restrictor or recirculation or wrong gas group. Internal pressure measuring point in venturi blocked. Do not use lubricant on O-ring.|
|S2, S22||Taps - Poor flow rate - The S2 and S22 fault code describes the rate at which water comes out of taps, shower heads and any other outlets. The poor flow rate means that the flow of water is slow.|
