Sometimes your boiler may show an error code. These help to determine if there is a problem with the boiler, gas supply or heating system and how to resolve it. Some problems are easy to fix and you can carry out a few simple steps to do it yourself, while others need to be sorted out by a Gas Safe registered engineer.
The error code will appear on the facia display as either two or three numbers, preceded by the letter ‘E’. For example, code E133 will be displayed by 'E1' alternating with '33'. E50 is shown as 'E' then '50'.
Below you will find a list of the most common error codes, and the action you need to take. If the error code persists or does not indicate an issue you can fix yourself, please call your Gas Safe registered installer.
