Discuss Vaillant ecotec 831 F61 fault in the Gas Engineers Forum area at PlumbersForums.net

Just wondered if anybody could help me with this one.****** or advise...

Called out to an ecotec 831. fault code F61.

The gas valve had been changed by a third party a week before...

I checked the ignition electrodes and they were caked in sh*t. Cleaned and fired back up.

Advised customer a full strip down and service new seals etc... Never had it done before.***

The customer then mentioned he's had a series of faults show the last month prior to new gas valve. F61. F29. F27. F62

Sounds to me like the PCB is on its way out.*** What do you guys think?

cheers

Yep do you know if it was a recon board tbh I normally send them on a fixed price repair to vaillant

Then if the gas valve is faulty or fan or both it’s not my pocket that’s hurt
