Worcester Bosch CDI Highflow Combi Boiler Error Codes

A light on your boiler will flash to indicate that there is a fault. Depending on the type of fault, the light will flash in a different sequence.

There will be 4 quick flashes followed by a 5 second gap when the light is off and finally a series of longer flashes. The number of long flashes tells you which fault the boiler has.

Worcester Bosch Error Code EA 229 or D5

If you’re seeing the error code EA 229 or D5 on your Worcester Bosch boiler, this means that the condensate pipe is frozen. This happens due to the condensate pipe running outside, however this is an issue that you could fix yourself if you feel confident enough, you can find out how in our handy guide.
