Question about Bosch Water Heaters

Fault light flashing 1 flash per second

New board fitted after speaking with worcestor tech help line . Boiler fired up ok . next day after the boiler had been on a while and heated up the house the fault light started to flash . Pressed reset and boiler fired up . This then happened a second time .
Original fault was the fault light was flashing 4 times per second , the boiler would fire up the fan would start then slow down and then stop . There was only 110volts from the board to the fan , this was why the technical helpline said that it was a board fault .

    i need to clarify one point please what fuel are you using gas or oil?

    as your first comment indicates a gas/lpg boiler and windowmans indicates oil please confirm and i will attempt to assist you.

    Have you checked the power to make sure it is properly ground? If the power is reverse grounded or improperly ground boiler control circuit will malfunction.

    Something not adding up here- there should only be a max of 115 volts in system at any point - there is also a 24 and 48 volt on control side . Power fluctuates between 110 and 115 at all times- this is not an indicator of a faulty board. I think -you have to access a couple things - is eye ( sensor )clean? Is there any danger of freezing in lines? Have you had any problems with pump in past and when was the filter last changed- The question I always dred asking are you using dirty fuel? I ask thes questions as the duration of flash indicates no fire detedted in most units and all of the above can cause this to happen

Prior to writing the above fault I had asked the owner to turn the boiler temp controller , for the heating side, down just a fraction . I was phoned this morning to tell me that the boiler had stayed on allnight with no fault light . After consulting with the plumber who fitted the system it appears that there might not be a room stat ,

After moving my gas meter from inside the home to outside and having a semi concealed meter connected we cant get the combi boiler to work properly we can get hot water and have the gas fire on but


your boiler needs a minimum gas pressure of 16 mb to light successfully. if your gas pipe has been extended it has to be able to flow enough gas. it may need upgrading to 28mm for even as little as a metre from the gas meter. if your central heating works ok when the fire is off then this is your problem

Thanks for that mike, it is a worcester bosch combi 24cdi heating and water can stay on for an hour then everything goes off and the red light flashes. it will come straight back on when reset, but then...


Check the pressure reading, should be about 1 bar when system is cold. Various models in the range of 24cdi. If you do not have a manual, go to,
http://www.centralheating.co.uk/Boiler-Manuals/worcester-bosch-boiler-manuals/worcester-bosch-discontinued-boiler-manuals.
Get the manual for your unit, to wards the end of install manual it has a fault finder, Also has a basic 1 in the user manual. Number of flashes how fast the light flashes which one flashing can all mean different, So get the manual and check, Some parts are easy to fix, as long as you do not touch the gas side the rest is plumbing. Come back if needed.

Boiler not working


When the fan stops working it also stops the boiler. Safety.
Check that the fan is turning and blowing air out. You can hear it turning at the top of the boiler and at the vent pipe exit.
With the electrics off, remove front cover and test the fan by moving the blades by hand. Any element of stiffness or jerking or if the fan does not turn freely - replace. These have an induction motor - no repair
Check the electrical contact wires to fan are ok. If the fan is ok check also the 2 plastic tubes to & from the air pressure unit [usually close to one side of the fan] are intact [no splits or holes and will maintain pressure and vacuum] and fully connected to their metal terminals.
Next is to examine the pcb (the electronic board behind the switches) Look for any block connections loose and any obvious signs of black marks on the board. If the latter, replace

I have an ideal standard he30 boiler instaled about 6 weeks ago. the boiler keeps losing presure about half a bar every 2 days if i dont top it up it will trip the fuse on the fuse board acording to the...


All the combis I've come across merely fail to fire if the pressure is not up. not only do they not fire, nothing else works including the pump and in any event the pump should not overheat just on low pressure.
water loss - try turning off the valves on the flow & return pipes [3/4 inch ones] 1 valve per pipe . This will isolate the rest of the system - rads etc Note pressure over a time period. In this mode the hot water circuit will still work but do NOT use the heating circuit
1/2 bar over 2 days is not serious but it should be found
Once you have either mended the leak in the rest of the system or found there is not one, insist on a replacement boiler
In any event having looked at the reasons given for the fuse blowing, I would definitely get a replacement.
These problems should not happen on a new boiler
I list Worcester.-Ariston-GlowWorm-Ideal- and many others who would confirm this

Flashing red light on Worcester 24i junior combi boiler


Pressure is ok? at 1 bar or above
I think on this one there should be a reset button [red] on the left hand top of the casing - or lower the control panel [ phillips screw on each side] and the button is on the left of the base plate. Press this and try the heating.or hot tap
P.S. if you're on a prepayment meter check you have gas.
