Among the possible solutions that we can implement to fix this error that has appeared on the screen of our boiler, we have the following. Make sure to read everything carefully and not overlook anything:

This easy procedure is very simple to do and won't take much time. This will be the first thing you can try to find a solution to this problem. Once the 15 minutes have passed, you can reconnect the boiler and turn it on to check if the error has disappeared.
  2. Inspect the pressure switch of your boiler completely, both its operation and its connections: You can visually check the pressure switch to see if it is very dirty. Make sure the pressure switch is properly connected to the boiler and pipes. Check for loose or damaged cables, and that the connections are not sulfated. Also, check that the pipes connected to the pressure switch are not blocked or obstructed by foreign objects or water. Depending on your boiler model, you can follow the user manual instructions to perform a pressure switch operation test. If you notice that the pressure switch is not working correctly, you'll need to replace it with a new one that is compatible with your boiler model.
  3. Perform preventive maintenance on your Junkers heater to ensure its optimal operation: Give your boiler a check-up to perform good preventive maintenance, clean all the soot that may be accumulated in the components and the smoke outlet or exhaust. Focus your efforts on the pressure switch and what the pressure switch communicates with all the other boiler components. Clean any traces of soot inside the boiler and then check if the error has disappeared.
  4. Check the gas and/or water pipes for obstructions or supply failures: Make sure that both the gas and water supplies are activated and fully operational. Make sure that the shut-off valves for these 2 supplies are fully open, as a half-open valve may reduce gas pressure or water flow, and your boiler may not work correctly.
