Common Potterton Boiler Problems
Low Boiler Pressure
The boiler will lockout when the pressure is too low. It is a common problem with most boiler brands, and Potterton has not to be left out. A fault code will be displayed whenever the boiler stops working. Usually, the display of the E119 error will be on systems and store boilers, Profile, Promax and Suprima boilers. The error code should be E118 for Potterton Gold or Titanium.
Boilers leak sometimes and the most leaks come from faulty seals, cracks in heat exchangers and release valves Other things that might trigger a leak are towel rails or pinholes in radiators, radiator valves or weak soldered joints.
Fixing a boiler
Even after a reset, the system will continue to leak, anytime pressure is below 0.6 bar. Therefore, resetting a boiler will not fix the problem. To clear the fault code, you can top up the system pressure. This, however, will not solve the leaking problem. You need to re-solder a copper joint or boiler pimp seals for the problem to be solved.
