Ideal Isar HE30 Boiler – H3 fault
Hi Everyone
Need some Help! My boiler has started getting H3 fault code a few days ago – after resetting (turning it off) it would sort it self out, but yesterday Morning (Friday) it just did not want to know, but this morning it started working again ?????
Reading a few of the topic/post its kinda confused me? icon_confused.gif ? i don’t want to fix the boiler myself but don’t want to get ripped off so trying to workout whats up with it.

This is what Ideal say the H3 code is;
DHW Thermister fault, attempt reset. If still H3 - Engineer visit required.

I have had the PCB replaced coming up to a year ago by npower – any one got any ideas?? I would be very appreciative for any help – so i can stop pulling out the little remaining hair i have

Thanks icon_biggrin.gif

If its the DHW thermistor that measures the plate HE water inlet temperature I think that its is a special type and not like the flow and return ones.

When I was checking a while back I seem to remember it was not in stock at many HRPC branches.

It IS a wet pocket thermistor, and its on of those that resistance should be 10kohms at 25 deg....

H3 would show either open circuit or 0 resistance....

Sorry to bump an old thread but not sure if this question deserved a thread of its own.

I have an Ideal boiler and all seemed ok with it until recently. At the moment, central heating and hot water are coming through ok but when the boiler is not required to heat (so central heating is off and taps are off) it periodically kicks in with the H3 status. Now from reading the forum this suggests something is broken, but we have just had a service done (I am a tenant) and I brought this up with the gentleman who came around and he said that this status can occur becuase of the cold weather we are experiencing at the moment.

Just wondered if he was feeding me a line or whether he was been genuine. In fairness the problem did coincide with the cold snap we are currently experiencing but this could be a total coincidence.

Thanks

Mark
