GENERAL GUIDANCE NOTES ON HOT WATER DELIVERY
This boiler has a temperature modulation system to control the hot water delivery temperature. However
there are certain circumstances which can “cheat” the system causing a wide variation of temperature at the
outlet. These notes are designed to help the user obtain the best possible performance from the boiler and
avoid situations which could result in unsatisfactory performance.
-
The boiler can theoretically supply more than one outlet simultaneously However in practice the tap which
is nearest will receive the most hot water. If the shower is in use and a kitchen tap is opened virtually all
the hot water will be diverted to the kitchen as it offers the least resistance.
-
If an outlet is too restrictive it will slow down the flow rate and increase the temperature. For example the
shower - ensure the head is free from blockages caused by scale.
-
Due to the restrictive nature of simple mixer showers it is wise to turn the temperature selector down on
the boiler before using the shower.
-
If a tap or shower head is too restrictive due to a fault or blockage, the flow rate will be reduced to below
the rate at which the boiler is able to modulate resulting in a wide swing in temperatures. Either fix the
restriction or turn the temperature selector on the boiler down.
-
Caution: The boiler can produce water at over 80°°C when in central heating mode. If you run a hot
tap when the boiler has been heating the radiators, the initial flow through the hot tap could be
very hot. DO NOT PLACE YOUR HANDS under the tap or use the shower until this initial flow has
passed.
-
Allow time (30 seconds) for the temperature to stabilise after making an adjustment at the tap before making further adjustments.
TURNING THE BOILER OFF
Turn the main control switch to the O setting.
Turn off the gas supply to the boiler
USING THE PROGRAMMABLE TIMER
1. To set correct time rotate minute hand until arrowhead aligns with correct time.
2. To set on/off times move all tappets between ‘on’ and ‘off’ times

APPLIANCE SAFETY LOCK-OUT
This boiler has a cut-out indicator built in to it. Whenever a malfunction is detected in the ignition of the boiler, the boiler switches off automatically and the cut-out indicator lights up (red indicator light) To reset the boiler press the restart switch. The red indicator light should go out. IMPORTANT: Whenever the boiler has been
left idle for any length of time, or when a new gas bottle is installed (propane models), the appliance may
switch off due to the presence of air in the pipes. In cases such as these, repeat the ignition operation until
all of the air has been vented from the system.
FROST PROTECTION
Providing the boiler power supply and gas supply is connected and the main control switch is in the summer
setting the boiler will automatically fire on minimum setting when near freezing conditions are detected. When
the temperature in the system reaches 30°C it will switch off. For winter storage see notes at the end of this
section.
ANTI PUMP SEIZURE DEVICE
When central heating in not being used, but the boiler is in the summer setting (for domestic hot water only)
the pump will automatically run for three minutes every 24 hours to prevent it seizing. If the appliance has
been shut down with the gas and electrical supply switched off for a period, this device will not work. The
pump may be found to have jammed when the appliance is switched back on. If so, refer to “Routine
Servicing”page 19 .
PRESSURE GAUGE
The pressure gauge should indicate approximately 1 bar. If the pressure is seen to decrease over a period of
time there is a water leak. Consult your installer or service engineer.
ROUTINE SERVICING
To ensure continued safe and efficient operation of the appliance it is recommended that it is checked and
serviced as necessary at regular intervals. The frequency of servicing will depend upon the particular installation conditions and usage but in general once a year should be regarded as a minimum even if only occasional usage has occurred. It is the law that any service work MUST be carried out by a registered engineer
such as CORGI registered personnel.
SAFETY
It is essential that these instructions are strictly followed for the safe and economical operation of this appliance. The appliance is a fan-assisted balanced flue gas boiler and therefore the flue terminal MUST NOT BE
OBSTRUCTED under any circumstances. If it is damaged, turn off the appliance and consult your installer,
or service engineer. If it is known or suspected that a fault exists on the appliance it MUST NOT be used until
the fault has been rectified by a competent person.
PRECAUTIONS AGAINST FREEZING DURING WINTER STORAGE
During cold periods and if the boiler is situated in a place exposed to frosts, the D.H.W. circuit must be drained
down as follows:
- Turn off the cold water Supply
- Open all the hot water outlet taps on the installation (at least one tap should
be found at a level lower than the heater).
- Release the drain plug (shown opposite) which can be seen from under the
boiler.
- When the operation is finished, close the hot water outlet taps and replace
the drain plug.
- To put the boiler back into service, open the cold water inlet tap.
NOTE: In a Caravan Holiday Home installation there may be a drain cock on
the cold inlet under the van which may be used instead of the drain plug on the boiler.
NOTE: It is not necessary to drain the heating circuit if the heating circuit has been filled with anti-freeze.

5.3 WIRING INSTRUCTIONS
Warning: observe the usual precautions to ensure that the electricity supply is isolated before commencing
any installation or service work.
- The appliance is fitted with a flying lead for 230 V ~ 50 Hz.
This should be wired as described in section 4.5 electricity supply.
Note: The ignition and flame control by ionisation circuit is polarised. For this reason, it important that live
and neutral are not reversed. (If upon commissioning the boiler the burner lights but no flame is detected it
is likely that the polarity is incorrect).
WARNING: THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED.
ROOM THERMOSTAT:
It is recommended that for optimum operating efficiency, this appliance should be used in conjunction with an
external room thermostat.
The voltage between the contacts of the room
thermostat is 24V (normally closed). Any 24V
controls may be used, but gold contacts are
recommended.
20
30
10
DO NOT under any circumstances use a mains
supply to the stat as you will blow the P.C.B. in
the boiler. Only voltage free switching stats
should be used. The terminal block for the room
stat connections can be found by pulling off the
front cover to reveal the block at the bottom
right hand side. Remove the bridge to wire in
the stat.
FEB-20E
The room thermostat must be installed on a wall which is free from any objects and free from direct contact
with either sunlight or draughts.
5.4 WATER AND GAS CONNECTION
Connect the boiler up in such a way as to leave the connecting pipes self supporting and free from any stress.
Check that the gas pipe complies with the requirements of section 4.6
In order for the boiler to function correctly and to have a long working life, the hydraulic installation must be
well designed, and it is necessary that the temperature difference between the flow and the return should not
be greater then 20°C.
15
5.5 AIR/FLUE SYSTEM
The FEB20E boiler comes supplied with a Ø 60 - 100mm coaxial air/flue kit.
The maximum length of the combustion and intake pipes which may be used with the FEB20E boiler is three
meters, measured from the 90° bend. Each extra 90° bend or two 45° bends, reduces the available length
by 0.8m. (See installation examples).
It is recommendable to fit the pipe at a slight 2° or 3° downwards incline to prevent any water or condensation from entering in the boiler.
Where a short run of less than 1 m is used, such as in a caravan holiday home, the air restrictor ring
must be inserted into the boiler flue spigot before fitting the elbow.

6.- COMMISSIONING INSTRUCTIONS
Before commissioning the appliance, the whole gas installation including the meter MUST be purged and tested for gas soundness.
IMPORTANT: open all doors and windows, extinguish naked lights, and DO NOT SMOKE whilst purging the gas line.
Before commencing the commissioning procedure, ensure that the central heating system and the domestic
hot and cold water system have been flushed. This will remove contamination which could cause the boiler
to fail.
6.1 DOMESTIC HOT WATER
Turn on the DHW isolation valve.
Fill and vent the installation by turning on the various hot water taps in the installation
Make sure that there are no leaks in the installation
6.2 CENTRAL HEATING CIRCUIT
In order for the boiler to function correctly, the pressure in the central heating circuit must be between 0.75
and 1 bar when cold.
Both the boiler and the central heating installation must be purged of any air in the water pipes which may
cause noise and the incorrect functioning of the system.
The boiler is fitted with an automatic air vent. Check that the cap, found on the top left surface of the boiler,
is loose.
In order to fill the installation correctly the following sequence must be followed:
- Turn on the radiator air vents.
- Fill the central heating circuit using the approved method given in section 4.8
- Turn off each of the air vents as water starts to appear from them.
- Turn off the filling tap when the pressure gauge exceeds 1 bar.
- Turn the main control switch to the winter setting, making sure that the pump runs. Do not allow the pump
to run when dry.
- Vent the central heating circuit once more. Then let the pressure in the circuit settle at 1 bar.
- Make sure that there are no leaks in the installation.
VERY IMPORTANT: Never turn on the boiler before the system is filled. Allowing the pump to run dry
will cause serious damage.
6.3 GAS CIRCUIT
Purge the gas circuit as described above. Turn on the gas cock to the installation and check that there are
no leaks using leak detection fluid
6.4 SETTINGS
Before leaving the factory the boiler is pre-set in accordance with the information on the data plate, and therefore needs no further adjustment.

6.5.1 Preliminary warnings
- Checking all of the gas pipe joints and make sure that gas reaches the boiler (with the gas cock turned on)
- Make sure that the central heating circuit is completely full and vented. The pressure gauge should indicate
a pressure of between 0.75 and 1 bar.
- Make sure that the boiler is connected to the correct electricity supply.
- Make sure that the air intake and the flue outlet is not blocked.
6.5.2 Domestic hot water service
To turn on the boiler turn the main control switch to the summer setting. The boiler is then ready to supply D.H.W. on demand.
Whenever you turn on any hot tap the boiler fires up automatically.
By means of the D.H.W. temperature selector control knob, any
water temperature of between 35 and 60°C may be selected.
Position:
min.
max
6.5.3 Hot water and central heating service
Set the time clock to position 1 (uppermost) and the room stat (if fitted) to max temp. Then turn the main control switch to the winter setting. The burner will fire up. By means of
the central heating temperature selector control knob, any water
temperature of between 60 and 85°C may be selected. The boiler
will remain on until the temperature selected on the room thermostat
or on the boiler itself is reached.
Whenever there is a demand for D.H.W. on the central heating setting, the boiler is ready to supply it giving priority to the D.H.W. with
the central heating on standby until the D.H.W. demand ceases.
Position:
min.
max
6.5.4 Turning the boiler off
- Turn the main control switch to the O setting.
- Turn off the gas supply to the boiler.
6.5.5 Appliance safety lock-out
This boiler has a cut-out indicator built in to it. Whenever a malfunction is detected, the boiler switches off
automatically and the indicator lights up (red pilot light).
To restart the boiler press the restart button. The red indicator should go out. If there is air in the system or
the boiler is fired before filling the system fully, the high limit stat will trip. If this occurs there will be no lights
illuminated.The stat will reset itself but will take a minute or so and pressing the reset button will not restart
the boiler until the stat has cooled.
IMPORTANT: Whenever the boiler has been left idle for any length of time, or when a new gas bottle is
installed (propane models), the appliance may switch off due to the presence of air in the pipes. In cases such
as these, the reset button may need to be pressed several times until all the air is expelled.
18
6.6 FINAL CHECKS
- Re-light and test for gas soundness
- Set the C.H. and D.H.W. temperature selectors to the required settings.
- Ensure that the time clock and/or room stat (if fitted) are set to the required setting (s).
6.7 USER’S INSTRUCTIONS
Upon completion of testing the system, the installer should:
- Give the ‘users Instructions’ to the owner and emphasise their responsibilities under the “Gas Safety
(Installation and Use) Regulations 1998”
- Explain and demonstrate the lighting and shut down procedures.
- Advise the owner on the efficient use of the system, including the use and adjustment of all system controls for both D.H.W. and C.H.
- Advise the user of the precautions necessary to prevent damage to the system, and to the building, in the
event of the system remaining inoperative during frost conditions.
- Explain the function of the boiler lock-out devices, and how to reset it. Emphasise that if cut - out persists,
the boiler should be turned off and the installer or service engineer consulted.
- Stress the importance of an annual service by a Corgi registered heating engineer.
7.- ROUTINE SERVICING INSTRUCTIONS
To ensure continued efficient operation of the appliance, it is recommended that it is checked and serviced
as necessary at regular intervals. The frequency of servicing will depend upon the particular installation conditions and usage but in general once a year should be adequate.
It is the law that any service work must be carried out by registered personnel (C.O.R.G.I.).
Before commencing any service operation, ISOLATE the mains electric supply, and TURN OFF the gas supply at the main service cock. Service the appliance by following the full procedure detailed below.
MINIMUM CLEARANCE REQUIRED FOR SERVICING AND REPLACEMENT OF PARTS
* Distance at the side
The minimum distance necessary for carrying out maintenance operations, is 5 mm
* Distance at the top
The minimum distance necessary for carrying out maintenance operations, is 200mm
* Distance at the bottom
The minimum distance necessary for carrying out maintenance operations, is 250 mm.
* Distance at the front
The minimum distance necessary for access during maintenance operations, is 250mm, although this distance may be reduced to 5 mm, as long
as a door is installed which can be removed when it comes to carrying out
maintenance work.
7.1 FRONT COVER REMOVAL
The cover is held in place by four spring clips and can be removed by
grasping it at the top and pulling forward sharply to release.
Further access can be gained by removing the control panel. (Four
screws), and the side panels. The side panels are retained on key hole
slots and need to be pushed up before being pulled forward.

7.4 WATER CIRCUIT CHECKS
Inspect the pipe work inside the boiler for leaks. Check that the
pressure in the system is correct (1bar). Check the operation of the
relief valve by turning ¼ turn and check it closes without further
leakage.
Check the correct operation of the gauge. The pressure should
increase slightly as the temperature rises. Finally check the filter
which is situated in the cold water inlet pipe.

7.5 BURNER PRESSURE
5
This is factory set, but should you suspect a problem proceed as follows: There are two nipples on the gas valve, an inlet pressure nipple situated at the lower end marked ‘in’ and a burner pressure
pressure nipple at the top marked ‘out’. The pressure at the inlet should be 37mbar for propane, less no more
than 2.5mbar pressure drop when the boiler is working in DHW mode.
The burner pressure nipple should give a reading of 14.6 mbar when the boiler is at full power on D.H.W.
mode. Remove the main cable plug to the gas valve to get a minimum burner pressure reading which should
be 2.9 mbar.
7.6 FINAL CHECKS
Turn all the controls to their max position so that the appliance begins to function. Check for gas leaks using
a suitable detector.
Check the boiler functions correctly in both central heating and domestic hot water modes. The orange indicator should light up when the boiler is firing in either mode.

SELF DIAGNOSTIC FAULT CODES
The FEB-20E has a built in self diagnostic fault finding system incorporated into the P.C.B. Should a fault
develop on the boiler which could cause a situation liable for the operation of the boiler to become unsafe, then
the boiler will fail safe by locking-out which is displayed via the 'red neon' on the control panel.
The fault can be identified by the different sequences in which the 'red neon' flashes and the duration that the
neon stays illuminated. The electronic fail safe is also backed by a mechanical means of protection, should the
electronics fail to detect a fault. These mechanical forms of protection will protect and ensure the safe shut down
of the boiler.
The software protection built into the P.C.B. will run a system check on components which are essential to the
safe operation of the boiler. This occurs before any ignition sequence takes place. If any component is found to
be faulty or out of a predetermined range, then lock-out will be displayed.
Each fault code begins and finishes with the 'red neon' illuminated for 5 seconds, the relevant fault is then
indicated by the number of 1 second flashes which occur between the initial 5 second flash and the closing 5
second flash. These range from 0 - 12. Please be patient when counting the sequence as the correct identification
of the fault will save time on isolating and rectifying the problem.
Eg: Fault 6 water overheating would display the following sequence of the red neon;
5 seconds
1 sec
1 sec
1 sec
1 sec
1 sec
1 sec
5 seconds
N.B. The sequence repeats until either the reset button is depressed or the fault rectified. Some faults require the
component temperature to return within operating range before reset, is possible also some sequences may take
up to 3 minutes before lock-out is displayed, e.g. air pressure switch failure fault 1 or water over heating fault 6.

These fault codes are for the new type PCB with the part number MU0870700, this can be
found on the bottom right hand corner of the board. You can also easily identify this PCB
which has two blue transformers attached.
This is a direct replacement for the older PCB with the part number MU0868700, this can be
found on the bottom centre of the board.
Note: Fan wire will need threading down from the fan to allow the plug to reach the
repositioned J10 terminal.
