GENERAL REQUIREMENTS FOR INSTALLATION
2.1
INSTALLATION
Models “34E BF” with a hermetically sealed combustion chamber and air supply circuit, may be installed outdoor.
Models “34I BF” with a hermetically sealed combustion chamber and air supply circuit, may be installed in any room in the
home.
For installations where the heater is connected to larger
systems, the additional volume will need to be taken into
account.
A temperature pressure relief valve may be needed.
An adhesive data plate is sticked inside the front panel; it contains all the technical data identifying the boiler and the type
of gas for which the boiler is arranged.
2.3
2.2
CHARACTERISTICS OF FEEDWATER
CONNECTING UP SYSTEM
Wash all system pipes well before hooking them up with the
boiler to eliminate any residues which could compromise its
functioning.
The discharge pipe must be connected and extend the pipe
to ensure that any discharge is safety routed any.
THE BOILERS MUST BE INSTALLED STRICTLY IN ACCORDANCE WITH THESE INSTRUCTIONS AND MEET THE
NATIONAL GAS INSTALLATION STANDARD AS 5601.
AND ANY LOCAL WATER AND ELECTRICAL STATE AND
LOCAL GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS WHICH MAY BE
APPLICABLE.
To prevent lime scale and damage to the tap water exchanger, the water supplied should have a hardness of no more
than 20°F. In all cases the water used should be tested and
adequate treatment devices should be installed.
2.4
FLUE TERMINAL POSITION MODEL “34I BF”
The outlet terminals for forced draught systems may be
located on the outer walls of the building. Fig 4 shows
approximate, non-binding minimum distances to be met for a
building of the type shown in fig. 4.
Fig. 4

2.5
ELECTRICITY SUPPLY
The electrical connection is made to a standard 10 amp 3
pin outlet. It is essential that a positive earth be made for the
satisfactory operation of the boilers.
THIS MUST BE FITTED BY A QUALIFIED ELECTRICAN.
2.6
a) The available pump head is given in fig. 5.
b) The appliance is equipped with an internal by-pass that
operates with system heads (H) greater than 3 m. The
maximum flow through the by-pass is about 300 l/h. If
thermostatic radiator valves are to be installed, at least
one radiator should be without a thermostatic valve (usually the bathroom radiator).
c) The following paragraphs outline the specifications of the
items fitted to the boiler.
WATER SYSTEMS - GENERAL
– This appliance is designed for connection to sealed central heating water systems.
– Check that the mains water pressure is sufficient to produce the required D.H.W. flow rate, but does not exceed
the maximum D.H.W. pressure (Table 4).
Where mains pressure exceed 6 bar a pressure reducing valve must be fitted in the D.H.W. inlet.
2.7.1
Pump
The available head shown in fig. 5 is that in excess of the
appliance hydraulic resistance, i.e. that available for the
system at any given heating load up to the maximum output in C.H. mode.
Never reduce the pump speed below maximum as this will
reduce D.H.W. output. The pump speed is indicated on the
side of the pump speed selector switch (if fitted).
2.6.1 Treatment of Water Circulating Systems
The condition of the water in the system is of great importance. Treatment such as Fernox is recommended to reduce
the effect of sludge and scale on the efficiency of the heating
system.
2.7
REQUIREMENTS FOR SEALED WATER SYSTEMS
500
The following Table gives the maximum system volume that
the integral expansion vessel can sustain under different
charge pressure conditions.
If the system volume exceeds that shown, an additional expansion vessel must be fitted and connected to the heating system
primary return pipe as close as possible to the appliance.
If an extra vessel is required, ensure that the total capacity of
both vessels is adequate.

2.7.3 Pressure gauge
scribed limits (Table 4).
If necessary, a pressure reducing valve should be fitted to
the mains supply before the D.H.W. inlet connection.
A maximum D.H.W. flow rate of: 14 l/m (3.1 gpm) is recommended. Higher flow rates will not damage the appliance but may lower the water temperature below an
acceptable level.
If the appliance is installed in an area where the temporary hardness of the water supply is high, say over 150
ppm, the fitting of an in line scale inhibitor may be an
advantage. Consult the Local Water Undertaking if in
doubt.
Devices capable of preventing the flow of expansion water:
e.g. non return valves and/or loose-jumpered stop cocks
should not be fitted unless separate arrangements are
made for expansion water.
For specific information relating to fittings (eg. Showers,
washing machines etc.) suitable for connection in the
D.H.W. circuit, consult the Local Water Undertaking, however the following information is given for guidance.
A pressure gauge is mounted on the appliance facia panel.
2.7.4 Safety valve
A safety valve set at 3 bar (43.5 psi) is fitted to the appliance
and a discharge pipe is routed to outside of the appliance.
This discharge pipe should be extended to terminate safely
away from the appliance and where a discharge would not
cause damage to persons or property but would be detected.
The pipe should be able to withstand boiling water, be a minimum of 15 mm in diameter, and installed with a continuous fall.
2.8
D.H.W. SYSTEMS
– Check that the mains supply pressure is within the pre-
2.8.1 Domestic hot/cold water supply
taps and mixing taps
All equipment designed for use at mains water pressure is
suitable.
2.8.2 Showers
If a shower control is supplied from the appliance it should be
of the thermostatic or pressure balanced type.
Thermostatic type shower valves provide the best comfort
and guard against water at too high temperature.
Existing controls may not be suitable, refer to the shower
valve manufacturer.

– Ensure that the rotary switch on the facia panel is set to the
SUMMER position “ ” (D.H.W. Only), turn the D.H.W. thermostat to maximum (fully clockwise), and turn on the electrical supply. Fully open any D.H.W. tap and the burner will light.
– Allow the boiler to run for at least 5 minutes and check
that the burner pressure is as stated in section 1.3. The
D.H.W. burner pressure is factory set and should not
require adjusting. If the burner pressure is low, check that
the appliance has not begun to modulate (this will occur if
the D.H.W. flow rate is low. If modulation is suspected, open
all D.H.W. taps to maximise flow and recheck burner pressure). If it is necessary to adjust the D.H.W. burner pressure the method is described in section 8.6.
– Reduce the D.H.W. draw off rate to the minimum necessary to maintain the burner alight by carefully adjusting
the D.H.W. inlet valve and check that the burner pressure
decreases in response to D.H.W. temperature rise. Fully
open the inlet valve.
– Close the D.H.W. tap and ensure that the burner is extinguished and the pump stops.
4.3
SETTING THE C.H. INPUT
– Turn the rotary switch to the WINTER position “❄" and
ensure that the room thermostat (if fitted) is calling for
heat. Turn the C.H. thermostat knob to maximum (fully
clockwise) and the burner will light.
– Allow the boiler to run for at least 5 minutes and check
12
4.4
SETTING THE D.H.W. FLOWRATE
A restrictor nut is fitted into the diverting valve to reduce the
D.H.W. flow to that which will give an acceptable D.H.W. temperature. To set the D.H.W. flow, procede as follows:
– select Summer position “ ” and turn the D.H.W. thermostat to max.;
– fully open the D.H.W. tap furthest from the boiler;
– check that the boiler is firing at maximum burner pressure;
– adjust the D.H.W. flowrate by turning the restrictor lever
on the divertor valve until a D.H.W. temperature rise of
approx 35° C is achieved. This corresponds to the
flowrates shown in Table 4;
– turn off the tap;
– remove the pressure gauge and refit the sealing screw;
Remember that the flow rates and corresponding temperatures
of use of hot water, given in Table 4, have been obtained by positioning the selector of the circulation pump on the maximum value.
Should there be any reduction in the D.H.W. flow rate, the filter
installed on the inlet to the pressure switch valve may need
cleaning.
To gain access to the filter, first close the cold water, drain the
D.H.W. circuit via the lowest tap, make provision to collect a
small discharge of water, then loosen the brass swivel connection to access the filter.
4.5
FINAL CHECKS
– Re-light and test for gas soundness.
– Re-fit the casing front panel and securing brackets.
– Set the C.H. and D.H.W. potentiometers to the required
settings.
– Ensure that the time clock is set at the desired time periods. Set the room thermostat (if fitted) to the required
setting.
4.6
USER’S INSTRUCTIONS
Upon completion of commissioning and testing the system,
the installer should:
– Give the “Users Instructions” to the householder.

To carry out the verification of combustion in the boiler turn
the selector and stop on the position ( ) until the
green/orange led starts to flash intermittently. From that
moment the boiler will start functioning in heating mode at
the maximum power, with switching off at 80°C and restarting at 70°C.
Before activating the chimney sweep function make sure
that the radiator valves or eventual zone valves are open.
The test may be carried out also during D.H.W. mode. To do
so it is enough, after having activated the chimney sweep
function, to take some hot water from one or more outlets.
Even in this condition the boiler functions at the maximum
temperature always with the primary controlled between
80°C and 70°C. During the entire duration of the testing the
hot water taps must remain open. After verifying the combustion the boiler should be switched off by placing the selector
on the OFF position; then return the selector to the desired
function.
ATTENTION: After about 15 minutes, or once the hot
water request has been fulfilled, the chimney sweep function automatically deactivates.

described in section 8.
When any service or replacement of electrical components
which has required the breaking and re-making of electrical
connections has taken place, the following tests must be
repeated:
– earth continuity;
– short circuit;
– polarity;
– resistance to earth.
5.8
CLEANING THE C.H. WATER FILTER (fig. 18)
To clean the filter, close the delivery/return on/off taps, turn
off the power to the control panel, remove the casing and
empty the boiler using the drain provided (14 fig. 2) until the
hydrometer shows “zero”. Place a container for collection
underneath the filter, unscrew the cap and proceed to clean
the filter, removing impurities and limestone deposits. Check
the seal o-ring before reassembling the cap with the filter.

FAULT FINDING
6.1
EARTH CONTINUITY CHECK
Appliances must be electrically disconnected, meter set on Ω
(ohm) x 1 scale and adjust zero if necessary. Tests leads from
any appliance earth point (e.g. inside control box) see wiring
diagrams (section 7) to earth pin on plug. Resistance should
be less than 1 Ω (ohm). If the resistance is greater than 1 Ω
(ohm) check all earth wires for continuity and all contacts are
clean and tight. If the resistance to earth is still greater than
1 Ω (ohm) then this should be investigated futher.
trace the faulty component.
IMPORTANT:
These series of checks are the first electrical checks to be
carried out during a fault finding procedure. On completion
of the service/fault finding task which has required the
breaking and remaking of electrical connections then the
checks 6.1 Earth continuity, 6.3 Polarity and 6.4
Resistance to earth must be repeated.
6.5
6.2
Switches turned FULL ON - meter set on Ω (ohms) x 1 scale.
Test leads from L to N on appliance terminal block, if meter
reads 0 then there is a short circuit.
Meter set on Ω (ohm) x 100 scale. Repeat it with leads from
L to E. If meter reads less than infinity (∞) there is a fault.
NOTE: Should it be found that the fuse has failed but no
fault is indicated, a detailed continuity check (i.e. by disconnecting and checking each component) is required to trace
the faulty component.
It is possible that a fault could occur as a result of local
burning/arcing but no fault could be found under test.
However, a detailed visual inspection should reveal evidence of burning around the fault.
6.3
FAULT FINDING LEDS
SHORT CIRCUIT CHECK
The indicator leds signalling irregular and/or incorrect operation of the equipment are indicated in fig. 19.
Before commencing any service operation, ISOLATE the
mains electrical supply, and TURN OFF the gas supply at the

* In the heating phase, the electronic board is programmed to include a burner technical delay interval of approx. 3 minutes, which
occurs both at system cold starting and at subsequent re-ignitions. The aim is to overcome the problem of repeated ignitions and turning off with very short time intervals between. This could occur in particular in systems presenting high head losses. At each restart
after the period of slow ignition, the boiler will set itself for about 1 minute at the minimum modulation pressure, and will then move
to the heating pressure value set.
