Potterton Boiler Fault & Error Codes

Potterton Boiler Fault & Error Codes

Boilers are like cars, a problem could occur when you least expect it for no apparent reason. Potterton boilers are no different.

Part of the Baxi family, these boilers are few and far between these days but they are still powering homes in the UK

POTTERTON BOILERS

The fault codes you will see on a Potterton boiler are a letter and a number, they are designed to show up on your boiler display so you can go check on the Potterton website or the table below and see if it is a problem you can solve.

If the fault code shows an error which you cannot solve, contact a Gas Safe registered engineer as soon as possible.

Potterton Boiler Fault Code Table:

If you’ve got an error code on a Potterton boiler then it should be in our list. Most of the best combi boilers in the UK will show an error at some point in their lifetime. 

If you have an old boiler, you may want to consider the fact it may be time to upgrade to a new A-rated combi boiler to help keep running costs down. You can get a fixed price for a boiler online on all the best combis, system boilers and regular boilers in the UK

Read some of our superb solar panel installation reviews from Trustpilot

Recently had solar panels fitted by Green Central and I can’t speak highly enough of the team. The whole experience has been trouble free and I would recommend them to anyone thinking about having solar panels installed – 10/10!

Our installation is now complete! 8 solar panels fitted and the journey from initial consultation through to the end product has been seamless.
Hats off Green central, Credit where it’s due.
Will definitely spread the word!

Recently had six solar panels fitted on my house by Green Central and I couldn’t have asked for a better service. In particular, I have to highlight the exceptional communications through out, the over all smooth running process and completely stress free experience, all down to Green Central. I now have grid independence which is valuable beyond estimation.
