E118 and E119

If your boiler pressure is too low, it will stop working completely and display an error code. When the boiler pressure drops below 0.6 bar, a code will appear on various boiler models, including: Promax, Suprima, system and store boilers.

If you get a low-pressure fault code on your Potterton boiler, just pushing the button to reset the boiler won’t fix the problem. You’ll notice that the pressure in your boiler is constantly dropping — you won’t be able to start the boiler again even after pressing the reset button on the control panel.

If your boiler codes indicate that it is low, simply filling the system with more water will cause it to stop working. If the boiler fan is not working, it will continue to leak water and cause water damage to your home.

You need to find where the leak is, and fix it as quickly as possible. Sometimes, it is just as easy to re-solder a copper joint (and it won’t cost you much), but on other occasions, boiler parts may need to be replaced (for example, the pump seal).

E160 and E161

There will be a small whistling sound that occurs when you turn on your boiler, which usually lasts about two to five seconds before the boiler fires up.

This is an unusual sound that comes from the boiler fan. The fan in your Potterton boiler causes a drought that causes harmful gasses to flow out of the boiler. The boiler needs to recognise when the fan is working before it can start up.

Sometimes, fixing the wiring in your boiler can solve the problem, but other times, you will need to buy new boiler parts. If the cost of repairs exceeds £500, it’s probably worth replacing your boiler with a new one. A boiler that has a long warranty will mean that you won’t have to pay for repairs.

E20 and E28

Another common error code that Potterton boilers give is that the boiler heats up radiators but stops heating them once they reach a certain temperature.

Get an engineer to check whether the boiler is on the right setting by checking the NTC thermostat. If your boiler is operating normally, there’s a good chance that cleaning the boiler will solve the problem.
