Baxi Boiler Error Codes - What Do They Mean?

Is your Baxi boiler not working and displaying an unusual error code on its screen?

Worry not as these codes can be a great indication of what it is that is wrong with your boiler, helping either yourself or an engineer to know what needs to be done in order to fix it! 

In this guide, we will be explaining what each Baxi fault code means and how to fix it.

How to Reset A Baxi Boiler

To begin with, it’s important for you to know how to reset your Baxi boiler model as this can often be the fix for many smaller issues. 

The way in which you reset your boiler depends on what type of button or switch it has.

Reset Button

If your Baxi boiler has a dedicated reset button, simply press it until your boiler resets itself and the pilot light relights.

Sometimes, your boiler may lock out. This can be identified by the RED Lockout light constantly illuminating or flashing. In this case, simply hold the reset button until the red light goes away.

Boiler Thermostat Control Knob

If your boiler has a boiler thermostat control knob, turn it fully anticlockwise and then turn it back to your desired setting.

ON/OFF/SELECTOR Switch

If your boiler has an ON/OFF/SELECTOR switch, open the pull down panel and turn the selector switch to R (Reset) and hold for at least 5 seconds before releasing.

Now let’s jump into what each boiler error code means and how you can fix it.

E50

Hot water NTC error.

Call out a Gas Safe Registered engineer to replace the hot water sensor and seal.

E110

Overheating error.

Bleed your radiators. If the issue persists, call out a Gas Safe engineer to check for blockages in the system.

E119

Low pressure.

Top up your boiler pressure. If the issue persists, call out a Gas Safe engineer.

E125

Circulation fault caused by low pressure.

Top up your boiler pressure. If the issue persists, call out a Gas Safe engineer.

E130

Flue operation error.

Check the outside flue terminal isn't blocked by a bird, or trees etc, and clear it if it is. If the issue persists, call out a Gas Safe engineer.

E133

Frozen condensate pipe.

Turn your boiler off at the control panel and turn off the electricity at the wall. Locate the frozen pipe and warm it with either a hot water bottle or warm water poured from a watering can (NOT BOILING WATER) Turn the power back on and restart your boiler.

E160

Fan system fault.

Call out a Gas Safe engineer to check fans.

E193
