When the E160 fault code occurs in the Baxi boiler, the cause of this error is fan-induced, and the Baxi will remain in a self-locked state. When fault code E160 appears on the Baxi, the fan may not be running, the fan may not be running at the required speed, or the fan may be burned out. Also, the fan may be positioned incorrectly or the cables connected to the fan may be broken or the cables connected to the fan may be tangled and preventing the fan from operating. The Baxi that is in the locked position will not work until this problem is resolved. Generally, the reset process is performed on the faults on the Baxi, but for the E160 error code originating from the fan, resetting does not work and is not a safe operation.
The fan must be activated before Baxi works. A disabled fan will stop the operation of the Baxi because fan-induced errors can cause serious problems. The fan is located on the chimney and for the working Baxi, it gives out the waste air that is formed as a result of the burning of its gas. In this way, security is provided within the place where Baxi is used. Situations that prevent the fan from working properly may also be the breakdown of the air pressure switch and the faulty PCB.
If the E160 fault code has occurred for Baxi, this is not a situation that can be solved in simple ways. To eliminate this fault code, specialist service should be contacted. In this case, the action that the service will do will be to replace the fan or replace the cables to which the fan is connected, and thus the problem will be solved.
