What could be the solution to the problem of error code C6 in the Junkers boiler?

We have prepared a list of possible solutions for this problem affecting your Junkers boiler. Follow the steps to the letter and pay attention to the details, as surely, with this guide, you will find the definitive solution:

  1. Turn off and disconnect the boiler to rule out temporary errors that the system may have: Let's perform this procedure, which is super simple and will not take you more than 15 minutes. Disconnect the boiler from the electrical outlet for about 15 minutes. By doing this procedure, we will reset the boiler's sensors and possibly find a solution to this problem. Once the 15 minutes with the boiler disconnected have passed, you can reconnect it and turn it on to check if the problem has disappeared.
  2. Check your boiler's pressure switch to verify its operation and connections: You can visually check the pressure switch to see if it is very dirty or poorly maintained. You need to make sure that the pressure switch is correctly connected to the boiler and pipes. Take the opportunity to also check its wiring and make sure there are no loose or damaged wires, and that the connections are not sulfated or in poor condition. Check that the pipes connected to the pressure switch are not blocked or obstructed, and if so, clean and clear them. If you notice that the pressure switch is not working correctly, replace it with a new one that is compatible with your boiler model.
  3. Perform preventive maintenance on your Junkers boiler to ensure its optimal operation: Give your boiler a check-up to perform good preventive maintenance, clean all the soot that may have accumulated on the components and the smoke outlet or exhaust. Focus your efforts on the pressure switch and the fan. Clean any traces of soot, dust, and dirt that the boiler may have inside and then check if the error has disappeared.
  4. Check the internal wiring of your boiler and connectors, especially those of the fan and pressure switch: Make sure the wiring is in good condition and that the connectors are firmly attached, both on the PCB electronic card and on the fan and pressure switch of your boiler. You need to check for sulfate on the connectors and proceed with cleaning to completely remove it. You can use an electronic cleaner or a sulfate remover chemical to help you with this task, also use a bristle brush to clean everything well and ensure a good connection. Check that the wiring is not loose, cut, burned, scorched, melted, etc. In case you find any kind of problem, you need to make the necessary repairs as appropriate.
  5. Check your boiler's fan and perform maintenance if necessary: Check if the fan is visibly stuck and that when you try to turn it, it produces some force and you notice it as stuck. Clean any dust, soot, and dirt that may have accumulated on both its blades and the middle motor. The fan must rotate freely and without any jamming, it should not get stuck with absolutely anything, and it must have good speed and stability when rotating.
  6. Replace the fan of your Junkers boiler with a new one that is compatible: If you realize that there is some kind of problem with your fan and that it cannot be repaired, then you will have to replace it with a new one. If after all the checks and maintenance this error persists, consider replacing the fan. In that case, uninstall the fan from your boiler and look for a replacement that is compatible with your boiler model.
  7. Check the gas and/or water pipes for obstructions or supply faults: Make sure both the water and gas supplies are operational, active, and functioning at full capacity. If you think it necessary to call the companies that provide the service, do so to rule out any problems with your supply or if there is scheduled maintenance in your area and they have cut off the supply for a few hours. Also, you need to check if the shut-off valves for these two supplies are fully open, as a partially open valve can decrease gas pressure or water flow, and your boiler may not work correctly.
  8. If the problem persists, you need to go over everything we have mentioned in this guide: Carefully review each point we have mentioned in this guide to rule out any probable cause of this error code. If you do not feel confident enough to make the repairs yourself, you can always call Junkers technical support to do it for you.
