The boiler will now operate automatically to provide central heating for the conditions selected on the external
controls (ecoMAX 800 series will also provide domestic
hot water on demand).
Whilst the boiler is operating, the boiler display indicates
the temperature of the water within the boiler circuit.
After the boiler stops operating the pump and fan will
continue to operate for a short period to fully disperse
the heat from the boiler.
Note!
The boiler incorporates an anti-cycling economiser control to prevent energy wasteful ON and
OFF operation of the boiler for short periods
when in the central heating mode. When turning
the room thermostat to a higher setting there
may therefore be a short delay before the boiler
operates.
• The status displays are activated by pressing the "i" (1)
button.
The display (2) now shows the corresponding status
code, e.g. "S.4" for burner operation. Please refer to
table B.1 (below) for details of the most important status
codes.
• Press the "i" button again to return to normal mode.
During changeover phases, such as when the system
restarts after the flame has been extinguished, the "S"

STOP
Attention!
If the boiler still shuts off after a third attempt,
then please consult your installer or Vaillant
Service Solutions.
The boiler also switches to “Fault” when there is not
enough water in the system. This fault is indicated by
fault code “F.22” “F.23” or “F.24”.
The boiler can only be placed back in operation after the
heating system has been properly refilled with water.
In the unlikely event of any other fault developing, which
prevents the boiler from operating, the display will also
show other fault codes. If a fault code is displayed please
contact your installer or Vaillant Service Solutions.
Note!
If contacting Vaillant Service Solutions please
remember to quote the fault code, as this will
help to pinpoint the fault.
Fig. B.11 Resetting the appliance
When a hot water tap (ecoMAX 800 series only) or the
central heating system requires heat, the boiler automatically ignites and starts to operate. If the automatic ignition is not successful within 5 attempts, then the boiler
does not go into operation and switches to “Lock out”.
This is indicated by a fault code “F.28” or “F.29” on the
display.
A new attempt to ignite the flame can then only be performed after pressing the “Reset” button.
• Press the “Reset” button (1) and hold for approx.
1 second.

4.9 Troubleshooting
In the unlikely event that a problem occurs with the operation of the ecoMAX boiler, the following points should
be checked:
1
•
•
•
Boiler fails to operate:
Is the gas supply turned on? (see page 5)
Is the water supply turned on? (see page 5)
Is there enough water in the heating system? (see
page 6)
• Is the electrical supply switched ON?
• Is the main ON/OFF control in the “ON” position?
(switch position “I”) (see page 6)
• Is the burner lock out indicator light illuminated?
(see page 9)
2 Hot water operates but no central heating
(ecoMAX 800 series only)
• Is the heating turned ON? (see page 7)
• Are all external heating controls ON? (see page 8)
Attention!
If your boiler still does not operate then please
consult your installer or Vaillant Service
Solutions (0870 6060 777).
4.10 Care and maintenance
Clean the outer casing of your boiler with a damp cloth
and a little soap. Do not use abrasive or solvent cleaning
agents that may damage the case or the plastic fittings.
The appliance should be serviced at least once per year.
To ensure regular servicing, it is strongly recommended
that arrangements are made with your service agent or
Vaillant Ltd.
For further details please contact Vaillant Service
Solutions: (0870 6060777).
Instructions for use ecoMAX
4.11 Frost protection
Your boiler is equipped with a frost protection function:
If the heating water temperature drops below 5 °C when
the main switch is ON, then the boiler goes into operation and heats the boiler circuit to approx. 30 °C.
Note!
It cannot be guaranteed that water will circulate
throughout the entire heating system.
If the boiler is not operated for several hours during
very cold weather there is therefore the possibility of
the system freezing.
Please ensure that if you are absent during a period of
frost the central heating remains in operation and all
rooms are kept above freezing point.
It must be remembered, however, that the boiler will be
automatically switched off by the built in monitoring
devices if certain faults occur, e.g. interruption in the gas
or electricity supply or faults in the flue gas system. To
overcome this possibility you can drain both the central
heating system and boiler.
Note!
Frost protection and monitoring devices can
only function when the main switch of the unit
is set to the “I” position and the boiler is
connected to the electrical supply.
