Worcester Bosch Boiler Problems, Fault and Error Codes

If you have found this page then chances are you have an issue with your Worcester Bosch Boiler. It may have stopped working, or not be operating correctly and may be displaying a fault or error code. Whatever the problem you shouldn’t ever try to fix the boiler yourself, leave that to Gas Safe certified engineers like us to fix, repair or replace any gas appliance such as a boiler. However some issues can be disagnosed using the Worcester Bosch boiler fault or error codes, which helps us diagnose the problem quicker for you.

If your boiler or heating system develops a problem, your boiler may go into a safety lock-out mode and display a fault code, see below for further details. Once you have this code please call us and we can then arrange a visit.

Please do not use this information to repair the boiler yourself it is for information only. If you have an issue with your boiler or heating system then please call us to arrange a repair call out.

 


























Error
Types
Fault
Display
Repair
Required
Fault Error An alpha-numeric fault code will display indicating the fault group (see below) Do not investigate the issue further as it may be hazardous to do so. Call us to diagnose further.
Locking Error Flashing warning triangle and fault code.
A (static) cause code will also be displayed.
Diagnose fault from fault code (see below).
Once fixed press reset button on boiler.
Blocking Error The boiler will stop operating with no fault data showing on the boiler display panel. Access the ‘Info menu’ by pressing the spanner/return button to find the ’cause code’.
In some cases a blocking error may change to a locking error after a defined time period. The condition clears automatically when the associated fault clears e.g. waiting for an area to cool the ‘Blocking error’ will clear.
Cause Error Display shows a three digit number.
Cause code is accessed in the info menu via the spanner/return button if the boiler is operating normally and during a Blocking Error. During a locking error the cause code flashes on the display.
Maintenance Code Shows with the letter H followed by a number. This is not a fault that stops the boiler from functioning but does require a boiler engineer to look at the boiler to prevent further problems. Some common H codes are listed below.
