Viessmann boiler error 61

An error 61 can happen when there is an issue with the boiler’s connection to its burner. This can be as a result of a fault in the gas valve, which controls the gas supply from the boiler to its burner.

To fix this error, you need to make sure that the burner is lit, or even better, turn it on manually by using a lighter or match.

If you are still getting an error 61 after doing that and then this problem might be happening because of a faulty gas valve. You might need to replace it with replacement parts if you don’t want to do any home repairs yourself – this is because it needs specialist tools and knowledge for repairs.

Viessmann boiler error 61 is often caused by not properly closing the heat exchanger door. You can usually tell because when you open it, you can look down the pipe and see water or sludge in it. The best way to fix this problem is to close the door, forcing the water out of the pipe and stopping any leaks.
