Vaillant boilers are a popular choice for heating systems, but just like any other heating product, they can experience faults and issues from time to time.

When something goes wrong, fault codes are displayed on the boiler’s display panel, which are designed to help you and your engineer quickly identify and fix the problem.

Some of the most common fault codes include F22, F28, F29, and F75, each indicating a specific issue with the boiler.

If you experience a fault code, it’s important to take action quickly, but don’t worry, you don’t have to tackle the problem alone.

Our qualified engineer can help diagnose and fix the issue to ensure your boiler is functioning safely and efficiently.

Remember, attempting to fix the issue yourself can be dangerous, so always seek advice from a professional.

What is the F62 fault code?

The F62 fault code is a common fault code that appears on Vaillant boilers.

It indicates that there is an issue with the gas valve or the gas pressure sensor.

The gas valve controls the flow of gas to the burner, while the gas pressure sensor monitors the gas pressure in the system.

When the boiler detects a problem with either the gas valve or the gas pressure sensor, it will display the F62 fault code on the display panel.

This fault code may also be accompanied by other fault codes, such as F28, F29, or F75, which indicate related issues with the gas system.

What causes the F62 fault code?

There are several potential causes of the F62 fault code, including:

  1. Faulty gas valve: A faulty gas valve is one of the most common causes of the F62 fault code. If the gas valve fails to open or close properly, it can prevent gas from flowing to the burner, causing the boiler to shut down.
  2. Faulty gas pressure sensor: The gas pressure sensor monitors the gas pressure in the system and sends a signal to the boiler’s control panel. If the gas pressure sensor is faulty, it may send incorrect signals to the boiler, causing it to shut down.
  3. Blocked gas supply: If the gas supply to the boiler is blocked or restricted, it can cause the F62 fault code to appear. This can happen if there is debris or dirt in the gas supply line, or if the gas meter is faulty.
  4. Low gas pressure: If the gas pressure in the system is too low, it can cause the F62 fault code to appear. This can happen if there is a leak in the gas supply line or if the gas pressure regulator is faulty.

How to fix the F62 fault code?

If you encounter the F62 fault code on your Vaillant boiler, there are several steps you* can take to fix the problem:

  1. Check the gas supply: The first thing to do is to check the gas supply to the boiler. Make sure that the gas supply valve is open and that there are no obstructions or blockages in the gas supply line.
  2. Check the gas pressure: If the gas supply is okay, check the gas pressure in the system. You can do this by checking the gas pressure gauge on the boiler or by using a gas pressure tester. The correct gas pressure for your Vaillant boiler should be between 18-21 mbar (millibar).
  3. Check the gas valve: If the gas pressure is okay, the next step is to check the gas valve. This involves removing the cover of the boiler and checking that the gas valve is functioning correctly. If the gas valve is faulty, it will need to be replaced by a qualified engineer.
  4. Check the gas pressure sensor: If the gas valve is okay, the next step is to check the gas pressure sensor. This involves removing the cover of the boiler and checking that the sensor is functioning correctly. If the gas pressure sensor is faulty, it will need to be replaced by a qualified engineer.
  5. Call a qualified engineer: If you are unable to fix the F62 fault code yourself, it is important to call a qualified engineer. They will be able to diagnose the problem and recommend the appropriate solution. Attempting to fix the problem yourself can be dangerous and can cause further damage to your boiler as well as invalidate any manufacturer’s warranty.

*It is crucial to prioritize safety and legality by using a trained qualified gas central heating engineer to fix any boiler issues, given the significant legal and safety implications associated with fixing boilers.
