Viessmann F2 Fault

Viessmann F2 Fault

Viessmann F2 error code shows that there is a problem with flame detection, whereby it means the device has failed to sense a flame when lighting. This may result from several factors that affect how combustion starts and continues. Below are the common causes of an F2 fault:

F2 Fault Code Causes

Gas Supply Issues: The boiler may not get enough gas volume to ignite in case of any interruption or low pressure in the gas supply.

Faulty Ignition Electrodes: These electrodes ignite a spark which leads to ignition of the gas and creation of a flame; however, they could become dirty or even worn out hence malfunctioning.

Blocked Burner: Sometimes, if the burner is dirty or blocked, then it can fail to light up well.

Faulty Gas Valve: Malfunctioning of the valve might prevent it from opening properly for ignition purposes.

Issues with Flame Sensor: It’s important to know that this sensor detects presence/absence of flame within its vicinity. It can either fail to detect an existing flame when faulty or stop ignition thinking there is fire where it does not exist.
