    Hi,
    Can anyone help please? My boiler is not working and the pressure is below zero so I have turned the two screws as instructed sounds like it is filing and then the pressure starts to increase and then stops and barely gets above zero. Also then there is a leak whilst this is happening from the boiler. When i shut off the valves the temp drops back down and if i try to turn on get a code s 54??

    Do you mean the pressure goes back down? If so, it sounds like the pressure relief valve is jammed in the open position, but the leak is meant to go outside. I am not a boiler engineer.

    yes the pressure drops back down. I am going to try and see its cause their is too much air in the system and have radiator key in hand! will post progress on here.
