Common Boiler Problems

Here are some regular problems you might have with hot water and steam boilers. While you may be able to take care of a few of these issues on your own, you may need a specialist from Becht/Givens Service Experts for more complex heat repair.

  • Thermostat isn’t accurate. Check that it’s turned to “on” and the correct settings. Otherwise, your thermostat may need to be replaced.
  • No heat. Worn-out parts, thermostat problems or inadequate water levels could be causing the problem.
  • Leaking or dripping. Sometimes caused by a broken internal part, worn-out seal or rust.
  • Banging, whistling or gurgling sounds. Air in the system, low water pressure or imminent part failure can cause these noises.
  • Rumbling or kettling noise. Restricted water flow because of lime and sludge accumulation in the heat exchanger. This causes water to overheat and boil.
  • Pilot light is out. Caused by a broken thermocouple, draft or built-up deposit. Natural gas could also be shut off.
  • Pressure is too low. Water could be leaking, or a pressure valve may need to be replaced. Can also be caused by radiators that have been bled recently.
  • Condensate pipe is frozen. This pipe runs outside, so there is a risk of freezing. De-ice it by pouring warm water over it.
  • Radiators aren’t getting hot. Caused by sludge or air buildup in the system.
  • Boiler keeps turning itself off. Could be caused by several issues: low water pressure, thermostat issue, closed valve causing low water flow, air or pump not circulating water correctly.

Not scheduling routine tune-ups can often contribute to boiler breakdowns. Becht/Givens Service Experts can help you choose a plan that could help you avoid expensive fixes—and may improve your equipment’s efficiency.
