Boilers stop working for a wide range of reasons. Modern boilers are far stronger and more resilient than their predecessors, and people get used to having central heating and hot water on-tap, but the simplicity of boiler operation belies the complexity of the appliance.

In some cases, boilers stop working because of minor electrical problems – in many cases, people can resolve these issues themselves without a professional’s help.
If your boiler has stopped working and you believe it to be a gas problem then step away from the boiler! Gas work can only be performed by Gas Safe-registered engineers, so if you have a gas-related defect, then you will likely need to claim on your boiler breakdown cover or get in touch with an engineer.
Although laypeople will be able to resolve a couple of plumbing problems, these can frequently be too difficult for inexperienced people to perform safely and effectively. If your boiler is not working due to a plumbing problem, it’s best to call an engineer.
If the internal components of a gas boiler – such as its pumps and valves – have stopped working, you will be unable to legally repair the boiler yourself. Doing so could also be dangerous – only qualified and competent gas engineers can work on the internal components of gas boilers.
Don’t attempt to touch any part of your boiler or central heating system if you’re unsure. Did you know? It’s illegal for anyone to use a gas appliance if they think it’s unsafe. It’s always better to be safe than sorry as you could make things worse.
