Worcester Bosch Boiler Error codes / Fault codes

Worcester Bosch boilers are very popular and considered to be the most reliable, domestic boilers on the market.

It can be stressful when your boiler plays up or a fault causes your boiler to stop working. We have created this handy guide for Worcester Bosch Boiler error codes, which will help you identify and maybe resolve some of the problems in your old boiler.

Locking error

Your boiler will flash with a warning triangle and a static fault code. Pressing the reset button on your boiler will clear this fault.

Blocking error

Your boiler will stop working and will not show any code on display. Press the return/spanner button and you will be able to find an error code. The error code will clear automatically when the fault clears e.g. the boiler is waiting for an action such as cooling of an area and error will be resolved once this is done.
