Worcester boiler repair

If you are looking for an efficient and reliable boiler, it’s hard to go wrong with Worcester Bosch boilers. For more than fifty years, the company has been producing superior quality boilers in the United Kingdom. With a workforce of more than 2,000 people, Worcester Bosch is one of the leading brands in London. But like all other types of boilers, Worcester boilers need to be regularly maintained so that they do not become vulnerable to faults and breakdowns requiring a repair.

We have been installing, maintaining, and repairing Worcester boilers in London for several years. As a market leader in domestic heat and hot water systems, NXG Heating is there to ensure that your system continues to operate optimally and efficiently to the highest standards of quality that Worcester has always been known for.

Boiler repairs should never be neglected

As Worcester boilers age, they become less efficient and vulnerable to breakdowns without proper maintenance. It is highly recommended that your boiler is serviced on an annual basis. Your boiler needs to be maintained over the course of its lifecycle to prolong its lifespan and to ensure that it runs efficiently and safely. If your unit has had regular Worcester boiler servicing and has been well maintained, there are a number of benefits to enjoy including:

  • Fewer boiler repairs: With regular maintenance, Worcester boilers experience fewer repairs and minor faults can be addressed promptly before they become larger problems in need of costly repairs.
  • Highly efficient boilers: London is not the place where you want to see your energy bills rise. Regular maintenance can ensure that your Worcester boiler runs as efficiently as possible reducing your monthly cost of energy.
  • Safety first: Boilers can become vulnerable to carbon monoxide leaks if not properly maintained. Carbon monoxide poisoning can pose serious health risks to your family.

With the quality workmanship found in Worcester boilers, some families are still enjoying the use of their boiler well into its third decade of life. You can protect your investment and ensure that your home is heated comfortably all year long with proper maintenance. Since genuine parts are readily available across the country, they are often cheaper than competitors making Worcester boiler repair jobs affordable for everyone. While repairs will cost money, the investment can be offset by the enhanced efficiency of your boiler that results in lower heating bills.

Common Worcester boiler repairs

If your Worcester boiler has developed a fault, there will be a fault code displayed. NXG Heating’s highly qualified Gas Safe registered engineers are specialists in the Worcester Bosch line of boilers. They have expertise diagnosing and repairing problems caused by a wide range of faults including the following codes:

  • A7 – Faulty hot water sensor
  • E2 – Faulty flow sensor
  • C6 – Fan speed too low
  • B1 – Faulty code plug
  • F0 – Internal error
  • FA – Flame detected after gas shut off
  • F7 – Flame detected though boiler switched off
  • FD – Reset button pressed by mistake

Siphon Fill Mode

If the “-//-” symbol appears, your Worcester boiler has entered siphon fill mode. This symbol does not imply a fault with the boiler and is commonly observed if the unit has been switched off for an extended period of time. Occasionally, this mode can also be activated if a pipe or the condense trap is blocked. If you hear a gurgling noise coming from your Worcester system, a blocked condense pipe is most likely the culprit and you should call one of NXG Heating’s Gas Safe registered engineers immediately. In most cases, the boiler should restore itself to normal mode after 15 minutes. However, if the symbol continues to appear for more than 2 hours, you should contact us as soon as possible as your boiler is likely in need of repair.

Working with gas can be highly dangerous and it is important that only a qualified Gas Safe registered engineer handles repairs of your boiler.
