I have a Potterton Gold gas CH boiler 32 which is just over

This answer was rated:

Hi I have a Potterton Gold gas CH boiler 32 which is just over five years old ( it had a four year guarantee) it needs re- pressurising several times a year but lately it switched off two days on the run twice in a couple of days and the frequency is increasing.
It only seems to lose pressure overnight as its always @ 6.00 am when boiler is set to come on when it fails
Today there was a different error code I think E1 12 then flashes and changes to 13
No visible sign of leaks around radiators.
Can you help?
Thank you

Hi, check that the water isn't leaking from the safety valve to outside . Look for dripping or signs of leakage. If so it could be that the pressure vessel in the boiler needs recharging/pumping up
