ATAG boiler error codes
When an error occurs with your ATAG boiler, you will encounter an error symbol like the one depicted above. Typically, this symbol is accompanied by one of the codes listed in the tables below.
|Fault code||System behaviour|
|10||Outside sensor error|
|20||Flow sensor error|
|40||Return sensor error|
|61||Bus communication error|
|78||Water pressure out of range|
|105||Venting program active when power turned on / interrupted (runs for 7 mins)|
|110||Exceeded safety temperature|
|111||Exceeded maximum pressure|
|119||X2 link position 4 and 5 missing|
|129||Fan doesn’t start|
|133||No flame after 5 ignition attempts|
|151||Fan error or control unit defective (speed control is not achieved)|
|154||Return greater than flow – flow temperature increases too fast|
|102||Pressure sensor fault|
|104||Flow check failed|
|108||Pressure needs filling to < 0.5 bar|
|1P4||Pressure needs filling to 0.5 – 0.8 bar|
|109||Pressure > Pmax error|
|110||Send probe damaged|
|112||Return probe error – could be damanged|
|114||Outdoor sensor error – could be damaged|
|141||Central heating flow switch is open|
|201||Domestic hot water (DHW) probe damaged|
|203||Tank probe damaged|
|303||Printed circuit board (PCB) error|
|304||Too many resets have occured|
|501||No flame detected|
|612||Fan fault – fan isn’t starting up|
IC & IS Combi Boiler Error Codes
|Fault code||System behaviour|
|50||Domestic hot water (DHW) sensor error|
|117||Pressure greater than 3 bar or pump pressure increase is too high|
|118||Pressure less than 1 bar or pump pressure increase too low (no pump detection).|
Other Fault Codes
If you come across a spanner symbol, it could indicate one of two possibilities. Firstly, it may signify that your boiler is in service mode. Secondly, it could indicate a blockage issue.
In the case of a blockage, the code is typically temporary and will clear itself or will eventually lock the boiler after several repeated attempts if the error persists.
ATAG Error code 133
When encountering error code 133, it indicates that your boiler’s flame is failing to ignite after five attempts. This issue is commonly attributed to a frozen condensate drain pipe. Fortunately, a frozen condensate pipe is often a simple problem to resolve.
