Possible Causes…Why Is My Boiler Shutting Down On Operation.
Things the home owner can check before calling us out
- Fuel is there enough.
- Has the heating appliance shut down but the red light is still on? Check burner reset button.
- Do you get heating & hot water for a short period after resetting the burner lock out button? After do you have to press the reset again to get the appliance going. This may indicate an electrical fault or mechanical with the heating appliance.
- When you observe the pressure gauge needle this shows zero pressure?
- Is there water seen running out of the bottom of the boiler or any pipes?
- Overheat thermostat has tripped, this can happen in an overheat situation. The reset button can be accessed on grant boilers by removing the plastic screw cap & pressing the button firmly in. If the button solves the overheat problem, this may be masking another problem.
- The oil line fire valve could have tripped out due to an overheat occurrence.

Lack of oil boiler servicing causes problems. Along with neglect with the central heating system.
After long periods of time the heating system may become less efficient & cost more money to run. A system power flush can be a good way to clean up central heating pipework along with cleaning the boiler & central heating pump. Our experienced Devon heating engineers would normally spend the whole day power-flushing the central heating radiators & pipework through. Clean pipes & radiators mean that the water doesn’t have to push sludge through the radiators & pipework. The central heating pumps uses less electricity as part of the flush.
What we do during our safety checks.
We clean out the combustion chamber, the baffles & exit of the flue will all be cleaned. The burner will be serviced in accordance to the manufactures instructions. If any replacement parts are required during the service, then we will show you what needs replacing. Or we will document our findings on the form presented at the end of our checks. Oil tanks will be checked for safety. If we find any problems with the oil tank we will record these and give a copy of our findings to the home owner. More details regarding your oil tank can be found on the oil tanks page. Burner Checks: On the burner we check & observe for any unsafe parts. Worn seals & gaskets may need replacing due to heat damage from the burner.

Technical Information On Combustion, for the technically minded.
Our Grant service agents are often asked. How can efficiency from the boiler be increased?
Nozzles what do they do?
Nozzles are a consumable item that will become worn with time. Nozzles will lower efficiency if they are neglected, these should be changed annually for the recommended type. The nozzle size determines how much heat output in British thermal unit’s or kilowatts, power the boiler produces. Manufactures instructions have to be referenced to match the right nozzle to the required output.
Just before this happens two electrodes conduct a spark with the help from the control box, the spark generates enough heat & spark to gently ignite the spay mist as it passes past the electrodes, a flame is established by the electrodes.
