What does C1 mean on boiler?
What does C1 mean on boiler?
A C1 fault code is generated when the fan has stopped during operation. This should not be confused with other fault codes whereby the fan is running too fast or fan running too slow. Things to check are fan, harness and control box. This should only be carried out by a Gas Safe registered engineer.
What should the pressure be on a boiler gauge?
between about 1-2 bars
Normal boiler pressure should be between about 1-2 bars. The ideal boiler pressure is often marked as a range in green on the gauge itself. With red indicating the low and high boiler pressure zones. Bear in mind that your boiler may continue to work if the pressure is in these red zones.
How do I fix the pressure gauge on my boiler?
- Switch off and allow your boiler to cool.
- Double-check that both ends of the filling loop are securely attached.
- Open both valves, to allow cold mains water into the system (you should hear it)
- Wait for the pressure gauge to read 1.5 bar.
- Close both valves, one after the other.
What happens if boiler pressure is too high?
What happens when the boiler pressure is too high is that the system comes under unnecessary strain. This often means that the parts in the boiler become worn down by the high boiler pressure and seals and pipes crack, allowing water to leak out of the bottom.
How much does it cost to replace a fan on a boiler?
The cost of a replacement fan will vary, depending on the model of your boiler. But you can expect to pay between £100 and £200 for the fan, plus approximately the same again for a boiler repair engineer to fit it.
How do I reset my Worcester boiler?
Worcester Greenstar Ri Boiler Reset To reset the boiler turn the Central heating temperature knob anticlockwise to the “RESET” position and hold for approximately five seconds and then turn the knob back to the original temperature setting.
Will a boiler work without pressure?
When your boiler has no pressure, for safety it will shut down. It is always a worry when you come to switch on your boiler after a long period of not using it and you find that the boiler is indicating that there is no pressure.
Can you Repressurise a boiler when it’s on?
The most effective way to fix a problem with low boiler pressure is to repressurise the system. This can usually be done yourself without the need to call a Gas Safe engineer, but you should always check the user guide first to ensure that your model allows this. Turn off the boiler.
Does boiler pressure go up when heating is on?
When you turn the heating on the water in the pipes and radiators heats up and expands. This water expansion causes the pressure to increase in the whole system. So, when the heating is on you should notice the boiler pressure on the gauge to increase slightly but not above 2 bar.
How is the pressure gauge on a British Gas Boiler?
I believe it’s just connected via a capillary tube, although I imagine it’s necessary to properly isolate both water and electrics to the boiler before removing the old gauge and installing the new one – any tips?

Which is pressure guage on British Gas Greenstar CDI?
Country: The pressure guage on the greenstar cdi range is the same across the range. The 532i is a 30cdi with and extra 2kw squeezed out for BG. Country: Thanks all for the information and in locating the correct part.
Where is the part number for the pressure gauge?
Anyway if I could find the part number for the pressure gauge, and/or find out whether the capillary for the gauge is the plastic or brass type, then I’m basically home Other than figuring out how to change the thing of course… Usually there will be a blockage at the boiler end of the capillary tube.
