E133

Condensate pipes are responsible for carrying hot water from your boiler to your drains outside your house. If your boiler’s condensate pipe freezes, it will cause it to lock out and display the fault code E133.

If the condensate pipe in your boiler freezes, you should be able to remove the pipe quite easily.

To prevent this issue from happening again, you can insulate the condensate pipe and instruct a plumber to move the pipe to a place that is warmer than freezing point – like in your house.

E119

Low pressure is a very common problem that will affect all Potterton boilers. It is also not a problem that is limited to Potterton boilers. When the pressure in your boiler falls too low, the boiler will stop working, and it will display the E119 error code.

When your boiler suddenly locks up (known as a lockout) and displays the low-pressure error code, restarting the boiler will not solve the issue.

You will need to increase the pressure in the boiler by changing the setting in the manual. However, the exact steps to do this are different depending on the boiler model you are using. You will find this information in the user manual for each boiler model that you own.

A boiler is turning off or locking out

If your boiler keeps locking out and displays an error code that is not obvious, it could be caused by a faulty heat exchanger, a faulty thermostat, or a faulty computer board.

If your boiler keeps turning off despite there being no reason for it to do that, then you will need to call an engineer to help you.

Boiler systems are notoriously dirty and prone to leaks, so they need regular cleaning. Your boiler system may be covered by an insurance policy, but there is no warranty that your system will remain in good working order indefinitely. Therefore, regular maintenance is required to keep the system in top condition.

To keep your boiler clean, you’ll need to use a special boiler cleaner. This is a liquid or powder that you apply to the system. After a short period of time, the boiler will be clean and ready for use.
