Baxi Fault codes can be a mine field.
We bring you information that could help you recognise which boiler faults your boiler may display and what they mean. In this blog, we are going to be advising you on Baxi Fault code E119 and what it means.
What does it mean?
This means that the water pressure has dropped. There could be a few reasons for this:
- Low pressure on the boiler
- Water pressure has dropped
- A potential leak in the system.
What to do?
If you’re confident at re-pressuring your boiler then you can do this by doing what you have always done. You can normally find the instructions in the boiler, however, if you’re not sure how to do this then don’t. This can quickly escalate to a potential flooding issue to your boiler, which can cause more damage and need an engineer to fix. If in doubt, then call us out!
What to look for?
If the boiler isn’t working and you have no hot water or heating your boiler should display the relevant error code. You can also recognise if the pressure is low as the dial will be in the red. For the right water pressure the boiler should be in-between 1 and 2 in the green on the dial on the left-hand side.
What happens if re-pressurising the boiler doesn’t work
This could mean that there is another problem. There could be a leak, a damaged pipe and our best advice is to call your boiler engineer who will carry out a thorough investigation. Remember you’re dealing with gas when you tinker with your boiler.
If your boiler is of a canny age as we say up North then we will be upfront and honest with you because it may be cheaper to replace the FULL boiler with a new boiler installation if we believe it is better than to repair your boiler. To ensure this error doesn’t become a bigger problem as time goes on, we recommend getting your boiler serviced annually to help minimise the number of emergency plumbing call-outs.
