If your boiler has stopped working or you believe it is dangerous, you should call a Gas Safe registered heating professional right away. This is the most effective approach to get your boiler working again or to have a new boiler installed if necessary. You can’t go without a gas boiler, whether it’s in need of repair or installation. But what else should you do if your boiler stops working?
If you are doubtful, do not touch any element of your boiler or central heating system and call a professional instead. Did you know that it is against the law for anybody to operate a gas appliance if they believe it is unsafe? It’s usually best to be safe than sorry since you might end up making matters worse. Yet there are some easy things you can look into to see if you can get your boiler working again.
The first thing to do is to check the power. Is the boiler switched on? If so, is there power going to it? It might be you’ve had a power cut or a fuse has blown, and this will cause the boiler to stop working. Something else that will stop the boiler from working is a lack of water. This could happen due to frozen pipes, for example.
Pressure can also be a big issue when it comes to your boiler. If it’s too high or too low, that can trip the unit and turn it off for safety reasons.
It’s possible for anyone to fix these issues, but if you’re not sure what to do, contact a Gas Safe heating engineer for help.
