What are Ariston boiler error codes?

Ariston boiler error codes are the numerical and occasionally alphanumerical codes displayed on your boiler when there is an issue. This code usually identifies the fault so that you can pinpoint the cause of the problem.

Ariston boiler error codes are predominantly used by professional Gas Safe engineers to identify the problem with the boiler so that they can resolve it. However, it is always beneficial to understand these error codes yourself.

How to reset an Ariston boiler

To reset your Ariston boiler you simply need to locate the reset button and hold it down for up to 10 seconds. All boilers will have a reset button, however, depending on the type of boiler and the make and model, its location might look slightly different. If you can’t automatically see the reset button then check in the menu on the display screen of the boiler. As always, remember to check your specific Ariston boiler manual for more information and the specific location for your Ariston model.

All modern boilers have a safety feature that will force the boiler to lock out when a problem occurs. When the boiler recognises an error it will automatically stop the boiler from working, this not only protects the boiler itself from potential further damage but also notifies you that something isn’t quite right.

Why reset your Ariston boiler?

There are several reasons why you might need to reset your boiler. After a boiler problem has been resolved you often need to reset your boiler so that the error is cleared and the system can be refreshed to start back up again. Any error codes or flashing lights displayed will stop at this point.

Sometimes simply resetting your boiler can resolve the problem in the first place. If advised to do so by your gas safe engineer, you can reset your Ariston boiler yourself which might save you time and money if the engineer doesn’t need to make a home visit.

If you need to consistently reset your Ariston boiler, it could be an ongoing fault in the system or a water leak. If this is the case then it is worth checking with your gas safe engineer to see if there are any faults that could lead to serious hazards. This might also be a sign to consider upgrading your boiler.
