It can be due to a number of reasons. Most commonly the lack of circulation caused by the pump being too week or even broken. Again, pump failure can be due to a number of reasons.
You should ask yourself a few basic questions about your heating system:
Is the boiler serviced annually?
Whats the age of the boiler?
Has the system been flushed?
What type of system do I have?
Is there enough pressure in the system?
Is there enough water in the system?

If in doubt with any of these basics you should always consult a heating engineer! In our experience it can be very time consuming and expensive to get your system up and running if you don’t use trusted professionals.

  1. This is very helpful thanks for the info.. I know I suppose to have a pressure in the system but I can’t find the pressure gauge and the boiler is not firing. Where do you suggest I look?

  2. Firstly on the dashboard of the boiler try to find the booklet that usually helps. look at the bottom of the boiler on the pipes. if still not found try to see if you have an external expansion vessel (usually red or white ball shaped and sized) the gauge should be there. if found than locate filling loop and bring pressure up to min 1.0-1.5 bar and reset boiler. if works keep an eye on the gauge for a few days. it should stay between 1.0-2.5 bar
