IF the weather is extremely cold, and you're getting F28, the external pipework may be blocked with ice. Warm up the external pipes (lag them if you can) - and now see if your boiler will re-ignite.

A friend fixed our condenser boiler with this tip - hope it helps you.

Could be a gas supply problem, as F28 is an ignition failure. Common due to the restrictive 15mm gas isolation valve, which actualy reduces down to 8mm inside. Get Transco to check the gas coming into the property

Don't try messing with gas appliances, you need to get a registered gas engineer to come and have a look because it sounds like the coil has gone so the ignition won't work, please don't mess with it yourself because of the safety issues involed

be safe!!!

Its either no gas pressure, or its an expensive repair.
If you can get it done on insurance do that.
If not get a new boiler, your problems are only starting with with eco tech or any vaillant.

This fault appeared a few times when I ran out of gas, then when you top up, you may have to open the gas supply a few times before it kicks in again. Usually there is an audible pop, when your gas flows again.

Vallaint atmo tec pro f.28


Not my area of expertise (Computers is), HOWEVER am a General Contractor, and I listen to my sub's. (Subcontractors; i.e, HVAC, Carpenters, Plumbers, Electricians, Roofers, etc)

DON'T turn it off, or remove from power. You'll delete the fault code.

Write down the fault code F.28.

Call an experienced HVAC company to fix.
(Heating, and Air Conditioning)

If you turn the power off to it, or mess with it, you could loose the fault code for the repairman.

This means he/she stands around until it comes back, (They get paid by the hour), or comes back the next day, or when possible.

HVAC people get swamped this time of year. It may not be a next day return. Could turn into MANY days later.
Do not remove fault code.

Hi i get fault 28 on my vaillant boiler


F-28 is a common error for my vaillant. I have had this problem serviced at least 10 times (all under warranty). It is an ignition problem and can be connected to a number of things. I have had the starter electrodes cleaned only to later have them replaced(4 times). I just had the "panel" replaced yesterday (looks like a motherboard or electronics panel). This is the second time to have this replaced. All of these things can give you an F-28 error message. I have an atmotech pro and have had ongoing F-28 issues for two years. They are looking at venting/air issues as well to see if this is the problem. douglas
