9 Common Boiler Issues & How to Fix Them

The best way to assess your boiler’s issue is to have a trained technician out to diagnose it. Here are the 9 most common types of boiler issues you may be experiencing.

1. No Heat or Warm Water

As you know, this is one of the most common, if not the most common boiler repair issues that we face with our New Jersey clients. If your boiler no longer produces heat or warm water, the reason may be low pressure, faulty valves, broken airlocks, or a defective thermostat. We offer exceptional emergency HVAC services in towns such as Montclair, West Orange, Cedar Grove, Maplewood, Chatham, Millburn and Hoboken. If you are not receiving hot water in your bathroom or kitchen sink, give our MDL team a call to schedule service. One of our technicians will come by and be sure to fix your boiler system.

2. Water Leaks

Deterioration around your pipes can result in water leaking out of the boiler. If the pressure relief valve is leaking, this means the pressure in the system is too high. A couple causes for this are either that you have an old rusty pump seal causing the leak or the leak is due to an improper boiler installation. Fortunately, our expert technicians will be able to tell you the main cause of the leak and what course of action to take to resolve the issue.

3. Low Boiler Pressure

Typically, you can usually determine if your boiler’s pressure is too low by checking its built-in pressure gauge. The ideal boiler pressure is 1.5. If you see that the pressure falls lower than 1, that’s when the boiler will start to cause issues. A faulty part, water leak or radiator could very well be the reason for the low pressure. When your boiler has low pressure it’s always wise to get it checked out by a certified electrical engineer.

4. Ice On Condensate Pipes

During winter, your pipe can freeze and become blocked due to the condensate. The condensate gets transported to the pipe and when it travels back up into the boiler the blockage prevents the boiler from working properly. In this case, the best solution is to defrost the pipes.

5. Radiator faults

Radiators can often develop cold patches and other issues which are caused by a build up of air or sludge inside the radiators. This can cause heat to be distributed unequally. Whether it’s cold patches or other issues, it is necessary to find out what could be causing your radiator problem. One of our solutions would be to bleed the radiator. This, however, should be done by a trained certified professional.

6. Boiler not responding to thermostat

Is your thermostat malfunctioning and not working properly? This could be because the controls on your boiler may be broken or old. We advise to replace the batteries with brand new high quality batteries. Secondly, try moving the thermostat closer to the boiler and remove anything blocking the device or that could be causing an issue. If the problem with your thermostat continues, call us.

7. Boiler making Whistling or Banging noises

It’s completely normal for your boiler to make some noise while it’s in use and when it’s ramping up before turning on full blast. But, if your boiler begins to make strange whistling or banging noises, call MDL. This noise can be caused by air in the system, a faulty pump, low water pressure or even a build-up of limescale known as “kettling.” 

8. Pilot light keeps switching off

Our boiler’s today do not have pilot lights they are all automatic. Once a small flame is present then the gas valve releases more gas to heat up the water circulating within the boiler. It’s only if you have an older boiler when you will have pilot lights. If your light keeps going out this could be because there is a faulty thermocouple that is cutting off the gas supply., a deposit build-up or a draught blowing the light out.

You could try to reignite the pilot light yourself, however we highly recommend contacting a gas safe registered engineer to help solve this issue.

9. Boiler won’t turn on (no power)

If you realize your boiler won’t turn on the first step is to test other appliances and power supplies in your home to see if they are working. If they are working, next step is to check your fuse box to see if any switches have failed or tripped. If, for some reason, your boiler keeps going on and off, this could be because the pressure could be low or there could be a blockage that is preventing the system from working properly. If your boiler is set below 1, you should repressurize it. Of course, if you’d rather get it done professionally and safely, contact your MDL technicians.
