Ideal Boiler Error Descriptions

Listed below are some error Descriptions that you could be facing on your Ideal boiler.

Fault Description cause
Overheat Lockout Go to Frame 82 Overheat Lockout
Ignition Lockout Go to Frame 83 Ignition Lockout
Flame Loss Go to Frame 84 Flame Loss
Thermal Fuse Lockout Reset Boiler
Too Many Resets 5 Resets within 15 minutes Turn power off and on
Flame on before Gas Valve on Go to Frame 86 Flame On before Gas Valve On
Flow Thermistor Fault Go to Frame 87 Flow Thermistor Fault
outside sensor fault Go to Frame 87 Flow Thermistor Fault
Return Thermistor Fault Go to Frame 89 Return Thermistor Fault
Fan Fault Go to Frame 90 Fan Fault
PCB Replaced Incorrectly Ensure BCC fitted correctly Ensure correct BCC fitted
Low Mains Voltage Less than 160V to boiler Check voltage at boiler mains in Check if local generator 10V Contact Electricity Provider
Low Water Pressure Fill System to 1 Bar Bleed Radiators Refill System to 1 Bar
Flow/Return Reversed Check if Flow Thermistor correctly clipped to pipe Replace Flow Thermistor
No Water Flow Go to Frame 92 No Water Flow Fault
PCB Replaced Reset boiler by pressing r
No Connection to Primary PCB Unblock Pump
Pump Rotor Blocked If fault persists Go to Frame 93 No Connection to Primary PCB
NO CH BUT DHW OK Go to Frame 94 No CH but DHW OK
NO DHW BUT CH OK Go to Frame 95 No DHW but CH OK
BLANK DISPLAY Go to Frame 96 Blank Display
FLOW TEMPERATURE SETPOINT CANNOT BE INCREASED TO 80ºC Ensure Flow Temperature is not limited within Installer Mode (see Frame 37
PUMP RUNS DURING THE NIGHT Ensure System Frost Protection Temperature Setpoint is not set too high (see Frame 40)
Has PCB just been replaced? Reset Boiler
Are the Boiler and CH/DHW system filled with waterand are all Isolation Valves and Radiator Valves open? Fill and vent the system and open allIsolation Valves, then Reset the Boiler
Is the Flow/Return Differential across the boiler in excess of 30c Check the Flow and Return Thermistors(refer to Frames 87 & 89)
Check that the Pump is rotating freely. Replace the Pump, then Reset the Boiler
if the Boiler is Reset, does it Ignite for a short time and then extinguish check the Detection Electrode and associated Harness for continuity, visual condition and position (refer to Frame 59). Check if the Condensate Pipe is Blocked
is the gas pressure avaliable at the boiler > 18mBar Check Gas Supply and rectify fault
is 215Vdc avaliable at the gas valve during ignition Check wiring from Gas Valve to PCB and replace if necessary, otherwise replace the main PCB
unplug the gas valve is the resistance between the pins between 1Kw and 10KW Replace Gas Valve

Ideal Boiler Error Codes

Fault Code System Behaviour
0 The boiler is in standby mode awaiting either a central heating call or hot water demand
C The boiler has a call for central heating but the appliance has reached the desired temperature set on the boiler
D The boiler has a call for hot water but the appliance has reached the desired temperature set on the boiler
C The boiler is operating in central heating mode
d The boiler is operating in hot water mode
F The boiler is operating in frost mode
