Gas boilers allow for water to be heated and transferred to a house. In the event that a gas boiler is malfunctioning, a simple initial solution is to reset the gas boiler and try to heat your water again.

  1. Reset the burner controller, located on the front of the gas burner, by pressing the controller's manual reset button.

  2. Locate the high pressure/temperature switch, located near the burner controller, and press the manual reset button on the switch to reset the device.

  3. Locate the gas pressure switches on the boiler's fuel train, and press the manual reset button on both of the switches.
