Grant Vortex 26 combi boiler faulty gasket


I have a Grant Vortex 26 combi boiler, which was installed six years ago. Today morning, as I turned on the boiler I have noticed that some burnt & smelly gasses are badly leaking from a heat exchanger of the boiler. I am quite worried as there is the smell and smoke all around. Please share your expert views for rectifying the problem.



Hi Paul,

The most important of any boiler is a burner gasket because it forms the hardwearing closure between the burner and venturi that supplies the air and gas to the boiler’s burner. It is a common problem in the old boilers and according to the shared information; your boiler is six years old. Therefore, it is better to get it checked by a skilled boiler engineer and ask him to replace it.
