How to fix a Ferroli Boiler F37 error code
The Ferroli F37 fault code might be one that you’ll be able to fix without the help of an engineer. That’s because this one gets displayed when there’s a low-pressure problem. This can often be fixed by adding more water to the system to increase the pressure back to the operational level. That means that your Ferroli boiler f37 flashing error could be fixed super quick!
The way you add water to the system does vary between models, so take a look at your boiler manual first. Not sure where that is? You can download a copy here.
How to fix an F3 fault code
The Ferroli f3 fault code is shown when the safety thermostat trips. That can happen for several different reasons:
- a damaged heating sensor
- lack of water circulating within the system
- air has got into the system
This one will need an engineer to visit to work out exactly what’s going on.
How to fix an A01 fault code
When you get the Ferroli boiler code A01, then that means that your boiler hasn’t been able to light. This might be because:
- there’s no gas getting into the system
- a faulty detection or ignition electrode
- a damaged gas valve
- the power is set too low to cause ignition

How to fix a D1 fault code
While we’ve listed all the current Ferroli boiler fault codes, d1 is not listed within their user guides. Now we believe that it is due to an issue with the diverter valve not opening fully. This then causes a restriction within the flow pipe causing the problem.
Should you get the Ferroli boiler d1 code, we recommend an engineer’s visit to check out the valve.
