Potterton Statesman boiler burner issue

Hi Folks,

Someone please help me to solve the problem regarding my four-year’s old Potterton Statesman boiler. The problem relates to the boiler’s burner. The burner starts well, but unluckily there is flame & oil to it. What could a possible reason behind it?

Thanks in advance


Hi Joy,

According to the boiler’s user manual, some possible reasons along with their solutions are as follows:

  • Presence of oil in the boiler’s tank, if this is case refill it
  • All the control devices are open from the tank to the burner. In this case, you have to open the valves
  • Sometimes, it could be due to a blocked filter or nozzle. It is recommended to clean & even replace the components. If a nozzle is blocked, replace it

I hope it will solve your problem
