INTRODUCTION
The Thelia 23 and Thelia 23E range of boilers are
wall mounted combination boilers providing central heating and instantaneous domestic hot water.
The Thelia SB23 boiler is a wall mounted boiler providing central heating only. This boiler can be used
in combination with a hot water tank to supply
domestic hot water.
The boilers are of the II2H3+ Gas Category for use
with natural gas (G20) as distributed in the United
Kingdom or with butane or propane gas (G30/31).
These instructions should be carefully followed for
the safe and economical use of your boiler.
Once the pilot has been lit (Thelia 23 and Thelia
SB23 only) the boiler is automatic in operation.
The boilers have a fan assisted balanced flue
which both discharge the products of combustion
to and draws the combustion air from the outside
air.
The boiler is supplied for rear outlet flue connection.
Alternatively, the boiler is designed to allow the
flue system to be connected to the top of the
boiler, top outlet flue connection. Refer to the flue
fitting instructions.
The boilers can be installed on either an external
wall or on an adjacent inside wall, that is, the flue
system will pass directly to the rear or to either side
to the terminal fitted on the outside wall face.
Ancillary equipment
A range of accessories are available including, vertical flue coponents, bends ....
For further information contact your supplier.
Boilers burning LPG or similar gas MUST NOT be
fitted in basements or below ground level.
COMMISSIONING
Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations
In your interests and that of gas safety, it is the law
that ALL gas appliances are installed and serviced
by a competent person in accordance with the
above regulations.
Gas leak or fault
If a gas leak or fault exists or is suspected, turn the
boiler off and consult the local gas undertaking or
your installation/servicing company.
Boiler controls
The control panel, located at the lower front of
the boiler casing allows the boiler to be started,
shut down, controlled and monitored during use,
see diagram 2 (Thelia 23 and Thelia 23E) or diagram 3 (Thelia SB23).

DRAINING
Protection against freezing
If the boiler is to be out of use for any long periods
during severe weather conditions, it is recommended that the whole system, including the
boiler, be drained to avoid the risk of freezing.
If in doubt, consult your servicing company.
Draining and filling
Caution : the boiler is installed as part of a sealed
system which must only be drained and filled by a
competent person.
Note : If there is persistent loss of system pressure,
indicated by the pressure gauge, you must contact the installer or servicing company.
Safety valve
CAUTION. A safety valve with a discharge pipe is
fitted to this boiler.
The valve MUST NOT BE TOUCHED except by a
competent person. If the valve discharges at any
time, switch the boiler off and isolate it from the
electrical supply. Contact your installation/servicing company.
SERVICING/MAINTENANCE
To ensure the continued efficient and safe
operation of the boiler it is recommended that it is
checked and serviced at regular intervals. The
frequency of servicing will depend upon the installation conditions and usage but, in general,
once a year should be enough

PIPING SYSTEM INSTALLATION
Safety valve discharge
WARNING. It must not discharge above an
entrance or window or any type of public access
area.
Connect the safety valve discharge pipe to the
valve, the discharge must be extended, using
not less than 15 mm o.d. pipe, to discharge, in a
visible position, outside the building, facing
downward, preferably over a drain. The pipe
must have a continuous fall and be routed to a
position so that any discharge of water, possibly
boiling or steam cannot create any danger to
persons, damage to property or external
electrical components and wiring. Tighten all
pipe connection joints.
Gas connection
● The supply from the governed gas meter must
be of adequate size to provide a constant inlet
working pressure of 20 mbar (8 in wg).
To avoid low gas pressure problems, it is
Diagram. 24
Ins 016b
Water connection
Connect the water pipes to the fixing jig connecting plate using the copper tails supplied.
Warning : To prevent damage to the isolating
cocks, do not solder joints or fittings with the copper tails connected.
recommended that the supply is connected using
22 mm pipe wherever possible.
● On completion the gas installation must be tested
using the pressure drop method and purged in
accordance with the current issue of BS6891
● Connect the gas supply to the gas service cock
and then the gas service cock to the union on the
gas inlet elbow, see diagram 24.
● If it is an existing LPG installation ensure that it is
capable of providing sufficient additional quantity
of gas.
Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations
In your interests and that of gas safety, it is the law
that ALL gas appliances are installed and serviced
by a competent person in accordance with the
above regulations.
HEATING SYSTEM DESIGN
The boilers are compatible with any type of
installation.
● Heating surfaces may consist of radiators,
convectors or fan assisted convectors.
Caution : if the materials used are of different
types, corrosion phenomena may develop. In
such case, adding a corrosion inhibitor in heating
system water is recommended, in the proportions specified by the manufacturer, to prevent
gas and oxide formation.
● Pipe sectional areas shall be determined in
accordance with normal practices, using the
output/pressure curve (diagram. 19). The distribution system shall be calculated in
accordance with the output corresponding to
the actual system demand, not the maximum
output of that the boiler. However, provision shall
be made to ensure sufficient output so that the
temperature difference between the flow and
return pipes be less than, or equivalent to 20°C.
The minimum flow is 500 l/h.
● The piping system shall be routed so as to avoid
any air pockets and facilitate permanent
venting of the installation. Bleed fittings shall be
●
provided at every high point of the piping system
and on all radiators.
● The total volume of water permitted for the
heating system depends, amongst other things, on
the static head in cold condition. The expansion
vessel integrated into the boiler is pressurised at 0.5
bar in the delivered condition (corresponding to a
static head of 5 m WG) and allows a maximum
volume of 140 litres for an average temperature of
75°C in the radiator system, and a maximum service pressure of 3 bar. This pressure setting can be
modified at boiler commissioning stage if the static
head is different.
● Provision shall be made for a drain valve at
system's lowest point.
● Where thermostatic valves are fitted, not all
radiators must be equipped with this type of valve
and particulary where the room thermostat is
installed.
In the case of an existing installation, it is essential
that the radiator system be thoroughly flushed prior
to installing the new boiler.
15
DOMESTIC HOT WATER SYSTEM DESIGN
Copper tubing must be used for the domestic
hot water system. Unnecessary pressure losses
should be avoided.
● The boiler may operate with a minimum supply
pressure of 0.3 bar, but under reduced flow rate.
Best operating comfort will be obtained from a
supply pressure of 1 bar.
●
● In some installations it will be necessary to provide a means of accommodating expansion
water. A domestic hot water expansion vessel
is available as an accessory from your supplier.
BOILER LOCATION
Fixing jig
The fixing jig is supplied in three parts :
1) The connecting plate which allows the connection and soundness testing of all the pipework
before the boiler is fitted and helps support the
weight of the boiler.
2) The hook which supports the weight of the boiler.
3) The template which ensures the hook and the
connecting plate are correctly fitted relative to
one another.
Place template on wall in required position making allowance for the necessary clearances etc.
Mark the position of the holes for the hook and
the connecting plate.
Drill, plug and fix the connecting plate and hook
to the wall using suitable screws.
Check that both the connecting plate and hook
are level.
If the boiler is not installed immediately, protect
the various couplings to prevent any ingress of
foreign materials E.G. plaster, paint, etc.
Terminal position
The minimum acceptable spacings from the terminal to obstructions and ventilation openings are
as shown in diagram 26.
The boiler must be installed so that the terminal is
exposed to the external air.

The position of the boiler must be such that there
is adequate space for servicing.
The recommended clearances are:
50mm either side of the boiler.
600mm at the front of the boiler.
300mm below the boiler.
Note. Under certain weather conditions the flue
may produce a plume of condensation.
If the terminal is fitted within 850mm of a plastic or
painted gutter or 450 mm of painted eaves, an
aluminium shield of a minimum length 750 mm
should be fitted to the underside of the gutter or
painted surface.
Terminal guard
If a terminal guard is required, a suitable guard
with integral deflector can be obtained from your
supplier, Saunier Duval part number 85373.
Cupboard or compartment ventilation
The boiler can be fitted in a cupboard or compartment as long as adequate permanent high
and low level ventilation is provided in accordance with ventilation requirements.

boiler or to another extension pipe, if more than
one is used. It is a secure push fit onto the pipe
ends, no adhesive is required.
The connector fitted to the aluminium extension
pipe is fitted to the next extension pipe, if more
than one is used. The two screws provided must
be used to fasten the two pieces together once
assembled, using the pre-drilled holes in both the
connector and pipe end, see diagram 37.
The triangular pipe support should be slid onto the
aluminium pipe before final assembly and positioned near the pipe joint to support and locate the
inner pipe correctly within the outer PVC pipe.

● Turn the knob (diaDiagram. 56
gram. 56) to switch the
boiler ON and OFF: clockwise to increase the
temperature, anti-clockwise to decrease. The
burner will automatically
turn ON at full rating, at
reduced rating, or will
turn OFF.
● Allow the temperature to rise to the maximum
value, with all radiator valves open. The temperature rise will cause release of the gases contained
in the water of the central heating system :
- Gases driven toward the boiler will be automatically exhausted through the automatic air vent.
- The gases trapped at the highest point of the
system must be released by bleeding the radiators.
On reaching maximum temperature, the boiler
should be turned off and the system drained off
as rapidly as possible whilst still hot.
● Refill the system to a pressure of 1 bar and vent
as before.
● Restart the boiler and operate until maximum
temperature is reached. Shut down the boiler and
vent the heating system. If necessary, top up the
heating system and make sure that a pressure of
1 bar is indicated on the pressure gauge when
the system is COLD.
the given figure, check the gas inlet pressure as
follows:
● Shut down boiler.
● Remove screw from inlet test point at rear of
multi-functional control.
● Connect a suitable pressure gauge.
● Start boiler as described in ‘Instructions for Use’
● Check that the inlet pressure reading on the
gauge matches that given in ‘Technical Data’ for
the type of gas being used.
● Shut down boiler.
● Remove the pressure gauge, replace test point
screw and check for gas soundness.
● If the gas pressure is incorrect, refer to the Fault
Finding section in servicing instructions.
● If inlet pressure is below that given, the gas supply pipework/meter must be checked and any
fault corrected.
● In the case of an LPG installation, check the storage tank or cylinder, regulator and pipework.

Starting the boiler
Before starting the boiler check that:
- The gas meter tap is open. If using butane or
propane, check that valve on storage cylinder
or tank is open.
- The boiler gas service cock is open.
- The boiler is connected to the electrical supply
and switched on.
- The selector lever is in the left hand position.
Gas pressures
The main burner pressure should be checked during commissioning to make sure the correct input is obtained. Proceed as follows :
● Shut down boiler.
● Remove screw from test point on main burner,
below sealed chamber of boiler (see diag. 57).
● Connect a suitable pressure gauge.
● Set selector lever to right hand, heating and hot
water position.
● Start boiler as described in ‘Instructions for Use’
● Set control thermostat to maximum, fully
clockwise, and check that any external controls
are calling for heat.
● Check that the reading on the gauge matches
that given in ‘Technical Data’ for the type of gas
being used.
● Move the selector lever to the left hand position,
remove the pressure gauge, replace test point
screw and check for gas soundness.
● If measured burner pressure differs greatly from

OPERATING SAFETY DEVICES
Gas leak or fault
If a gas leak or fault exists or is suspected, turn the
boiler off and consult the local gas undertaking
or your installation/servicing company.
In case of power supply failure
The boiler no longer operates.
As soon as power supply is restored, the boiler will
be automatically re-started.
Overheating safety
This safety device causes safety shutdown of the
boiler. If this happens, call the nearest after sales
service department.
the piping systems has been properly bled off. If
these conditions are not satisfied, air noise will occur within the system.
In case of loss of water in the system
CAUTION. The boiler is installed as part of a sealed
system which must only be drained and filled by a
competent person.
If the pressure shown on the pressure gauge (diag.
58) is less than 1 bar, the system must be filled-up
immediately. Call the nearest after sales service
department.
Air in the heating system
Persistent air in the heating system may indicate
leaks in the system or corrosion taking place. Call
the nearest after sales service department.

Air flow rate safety device
If an obstruction, even partial, of the flue occurs
for any reason whatsoever, and causes reduction
of the air flow rate, the built-in safety system of
the boiler will be tripped: the burner will turn OFF
and the fan will continue to run.
The boiler will be ready to operate when the fault
has been cleared.
Important notice : a central heating system cannot operate satisfactorily unless it is properly filled
with water, and unless the air initially contained in
SETTINGS
Setting the heating output
The heating output of the boiler can be set
between the minimum and maximum values
given in the Technical Data, page 10.
● Connect a suitable pressure gauge to the main
burner test point as described previously.
● Set control thermostat to maximum, that is,
turned fully clockwise.
● Check that all external controls are calling for
heat.
● Start the boiler.
● Using a ball point pen, clearly indicate on the
data label the value the boiler is set to.
Note : This adjustment does not affect the
domestic hot water output.
Diagram. 59
● Open a hot water tap to a high flow rate, at
least 8 litres/minute. The burner pressure should increase to the maximum values stated in ‘Technical Data’, if not refer to Fault Finding section in
Servicing Booklet.
● Move the selector lever to the left hand position, remove the pressure gauge, replace test
point screw and check for gas soundness.

Adjustment is made using a small electrical
screwdriver to adjust the potentiometer (diagram.
59) situated on the lower front panel. Turn the
potentiometer clockwise to increase the burner
pressure, anti clockwise to decrease.
SETTINGS
Bypass
The built-in bypass must be adjusted according
to the requirements of the system. Refer to the flow
rate pressure curve (diag. 19 p. 11) The boiler is
supplied with the built-in bypass valve open half
a turn. It is adjusted by turning the bypass screw
(a diag. 60) . Turn the screw clockwise to close the
bypass.
When using thermostatic radiator valves (TRV's), a
separate adjustable bypass of 15 mm minimum
diameter must be fitted between the flow and
return of the heating circuit. Any bypass must be
fitted before system controls.

If desired the pump can be made to run when the
burner is lit and will continue to run after burner
extinction. This can be useful on certain installations that requireconstant heating water circulation.
To change the pump operation to continuous, it is
necessary to place the electrical jumper on the
PCB in the “C” position, see diagram 61.

As the boiler is supplied, the pump operation is conventional, that is, the pump will operate when the burner is lit
during a central heating demand.
CHANGING GAS TYPE
Should it become necessary to change the gas
type, a modification kit composing injectors, pilot
assembly and factory set gas valve will be
required. This modification can only be carried out
by an authorized and suitable qualified engineer.
