To be sure of what the problem is, you need to have all the complete error code.

How to fix an E119 fault code

A Baxi E119 error code means that the water pressure is less than the required 0.5 bar. This is a fault that you can fix yourself by topping up the water in the system, which then repressurises the system.

How to fix an E133 fault code

The E133 code could mean several various problems. It could be that there’s an issue with the gas supply. Alternatively, there has been a failure of the ignition system, or no flame has been detected.

Before calling out an engineer, first of all, make sure that your gas supply is up and working. Then try turning the selector switch to reset and holding it there five seconds. Fingers crossed, the flame will reignite, and you’re back up and running. If it doesn’t relight, then you’ll need to contact an engineer.  Baxi provide a great guide on how to reset your boiler wand you can find that here.

The final reason for a Baxi E133 fault code is that the condensate pipe has become frozen. This can be resolved by pouring warm water across the pipe to thaw out the ice blockage. Baxi provides a complete guide to resolving the problem on their website.

How to fix an E168 error code

This is a bit of a default error code. It often appears when the boiler knows there’s a problem but not what’s causing it. Sometimes it occurs when there’s been a power failure.

It’s worth trying a reset first, but if that doesn’t resolve the issue, then you’ll need to contact an engineer who may be able to fix it and save you from a boiler replacement that could cost a few thousand to change.

How to fix an E125 error code

The E125 Baxi error code means that there’s a circulation fault in the system. So, that means that the water isn’t moving from the boiler to the radiators as it should. This is likely to suggest that the pump isn’t working correctly or there’s a blockage.

For this problem, first, check that the system is showing the right level of pressure. If that all looks okay, then calling out professional help is the next option.
