Below is a condensed guide on how to reset the boiler and identify potential reasons why the error code has occurred.
1. Turn on a hot water tap and leaving the tap running while the boiler is being reset. Return to the boiler.
2. Press and hold the Standby/Reset button for 1-3 seconds (Your boiler will now attempt to relight a maximum of 5 times).
If ignition is successful during this period, E133 will not return and a flame symbol will appear at the bottom of the LCD screen. This is to show you the boiler has ignited and normal operation can be continued.
If upon resetting the boiler error code E133 reappears, you will need to make the following checks to ensure your boiler has all the requirements it needs to work.
(Please take care when attempting to re-establish your gas supply. If you are unsure, you should always get a Gas Safe Registered engineer to do this for you).
1. Do you have sufficient credit?
If your property has a 'pay as you go' meter, check your current balance. You may need to purchase additional credit.
2. Do you have any other gas appliances in the home?
If so, check these appliances aren't experiencing similar difficulties by attempting to ignite the gas hob or gas fire if available. If the appliances fail to ignite, you may have a gas supply problem and will need to call your supplier for assistance.
3. Is it cold outside?
If your boiler's condensate pipe has been subjected to below freezing temperatures for a prolonged period of time, it may have frozen, and will need to be thawed out before your boiler is able to work again.
