Grant Vortex 26 Combi Boiler burning smells

Hello Everyone,

I have a Grant Vortex Combi Boiler, which I bought three years ago. Now, it gives a very bad burning smell when I turn it on. I wanted to know that if it is something dangerous & how can I rectify this?



Hi Euan,

This problem is quite disturbing, but most of the boiler users face it. This is particularly common in oil or gas-burning boilers because the pilot light of the boilers can collect residue easily. In case, this residue begins to ignite, it can cause this burning smell. I would like to share that cleaning the boiler’s burner can remove all these remains, which can stop this burning smell. On a save side, do contact a boiler engineer in order to have a detailed look at your boiler.
