This one didn't make it i'm afraid, this entry is more for the boiler graveyard. For anyone who has an Ariston boiler, you may want to look away now... We were called out to this boiler as there was a leak coming from the bottom of the Ariston Microgenus 23 MFFI. When we got the casing off we found the problem, the main heat exchanger was burst and on the majority of boilers on the market this is normally beyond economical repair, which it is when you see the damage to the inside of the boiler. Please have a look at the pictures below. The last picture is of the shinny new Worcester Boiler we fiited for another satisfied customer. Should you have an Ariston boiler or should you wish a new Worcester Boiler please feel free to contact us at your earliest convenience to discuss your options.
We attended to Mr Shaw's Property in Seedhill Road in Paisley and found that other engineers had a nightmare trying to identify the cause of the issue with the Potterton Promax 28HE and why the boiler couldn't recognise a demand for hot water. When the central heating is on there is a green light on the radiator symbol on the front of the boiler, however when the hot water tap is turned on the boiler doesn't recognise the demand for hot water.
We were able to quickly identify this issue and also repair it whilst on site as we had the required part in van stock. If you have an issue like this with any other boiler please feel free to give us a call or contact us and one of our Engineers would be a happy to call out and repair this for you.
We attended to Ms Drummonds Property in the Belvidere village estate in the east end of Glasgow to rectify the issue she was having with her Potterton Performa 28 which wouldn't fire either in heating or hot water mode. The red light on the 30degrees symbol is constant red, we carried out our diagnostics process and found this issue to be with a faulty PCB which we replaced at the customer request. If you have a similar issue or an unrelated issue with this boiler please feel free to give us a call or contact us and one of our Registered Gas Safe Engineers will discuss your issue.
We attended to Mr & Mrs Arazanbal in Lynedoch Place in West End of Glasgow to repair their Vokera Mynute which was displaying an F73 fault code, with a red light. We opened the combustion chamber to find that there had been a leak which had damaged one of the sensors please refer to the pictures below. This is a design fault of the Vokera boilers at the time, boilers affected are:
This fault starts as an intermittent fault where by the boiler locks out every couple of days or so after its been running for over an hour and its been producing condensed water. This condensed water leaks out of the plastic conveyor (which is a Vokera Design Fault) runs down the flow pipe and as a result hinders the performance of the sensor. Should you have a fault like this or one similiar feel free to give us a call and we'd be more than happy to attend and repair for you. Give us a call on 0141 239 1195 or Contact us via the website.
We attended to Mr & Mrs Graham's property in G76 area of Glasgow to find an F75 Fault code and the boiler failing to fire up in either heating or hot water mode. This particular fault code on the Vaillant Ecotec range can be particularly challanging as there are a range of issues that can cause this fault code. We had to replace a small part on this boiler at a total price to our customer of £79. The boiler is now working and The Boiler Repair Man has another warm happy customer. If you have a Vaillant boiler displaying this fault code or any other and you'd like to discuss it with us please feel free to call us on 0141 239 1195 or Contact us via the link.
Thursday 19th January 2017 we attended to Mr & Mrs Murray's flat in White Street in Partick as they had no hot water from their Vokera Excell 80. Even although this is an older boiler approx 20 years old, our customer's were looking for this to be repaired as this was the most cost effective outcome for them. We attended and had the issue repaired within half an hour as the part they required we carried in Van Stock, another happy customer of The Boiler Repair Man. If you have an issue similiar to this please feel free to give us a call on 0141 239 1195 or Contact Us and one of our fully qualified Gas Safe Registered Engineers in Glasgow would be delighted to take your call.

At The Boiler Repair Man we attended a red light fault to a Vokera Compact SE range of boiler, there are many potential causes of the red light on the Vokera Compact SE range. On this occasion we found this issue to be with the central heating thermistor, which we carry in van stock and replaced with a total cost to the customer of £80, another job done in one visit.

At The Boiler Repair Man we carry out Boiler Servicing, in the case of Mr & Mrs Cochrane in Baljaffray we serviced their Vaillant Ecotec plus 428 to keep their 5 year manufacturers warranty valid. As you can see from the pictures below the boilers even when they are three years old still require servicing, we removed dead flies and bees from the carcass of the boiler, we cleaned the magnetic filter, cleaned out the condensate trap as well as carrying out a flue gas analyser reading and gas rate check to ensure the boiler is burning as it should. This Boiler Service was carried out for £60, so call Contact Us to book in your annual boiler service to ensure your manufacturers warranty remains valid.
At The Boiler Repair Man we attended a Back Boiler Unit which hadn't been serviced in over 5 years. It is great that this boiler is now being serviced, however this is a potentially life threatening situation with the Back Boiler Unit. As you can see from the pictures below the dust that collects around this appliance is starving the boiler of oxygen that it needs to burn not only efficiently but more importantly in a safe manner. The lack of oxygen leads to incomplete combustion which in turn produces Carbon Monoxide - the silent killer. It is imperative that if you have a Back Boiler Unit such as this that it is serviced annually by a qualified gas safe engineer and it is also highly recommended that you have Carbon Monoxide alarm fitted to the room in which your back boiler is fitted. Don't take the chance, we offer Back Boiler Unit servicing from as little as £80 & the correct British Standard Carbon Monoxide from £35, Contact Us to book in an appointment.
