Excellence comes as standard
Thank you for purchasing a Worcester Greenstar condensing
appliance.
The Worcester Greenstar Series has been developed by the
Bosch Group and the strictest quality control standards are
demanded throughout every stage of production.
Indeed, the Bosch Group have led the field in innovative appliance
design and performance for many years.
The result is that your new Greenstar appliance offers you the very
best of everything – quality, efficiency, economical running costs,
proven reliability and value for money.
What’s more, you also have the assurance of our no nonsense
2 year parts and labour guarantee.
And it’s backed up by Worcester Care Call a complete maintenance scheme to keep your boiler operating at peak condition and
efficiency.
No wonder that more and more people are agreeing that when it
comes to gas, it has to be a Worcester Bosch appliance.
Benchmark
The “Benchmark” initiative is the new code of practice to encourage the correct installation, commissioning and servicing of
domestic central heating boilers and system equipment.
The “log-book” is a vital document that must be completed by the
installer at the time of installation. It confirms that the boiler has
been installed and commissioned according to the manufacturers
instructions and is one of the methods of demonstrating
compliance with the Building Regulations.
Without the completion of the “log-book”, manufacturers may
refuse to respond to a call–out from a householder, who will be
advised that he or she must call back the installer, who has not fulfilled his obligations to record the information required by the initiative.

Safety precautions
Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations
It is the law that all gas appliances are installed by a competent
person in accordance with the above regulations. Failure to install
appliances correctly could lead to prosecution. It is in your interest, and that of safety, to ensure compliance with the law.
If you smell gas:
B Turn off gas service cock at the meter.
B Open all doors and windows.
B Do not operate any electrical switches.
B Do not smoke.
B Extinguish any naked flames.
B Call your gas company.
If you smell fumes from the appliance:
B Switch off appliance.
B Open windows and doors.
B Inform your heating engineer.
Fitting and modifications
B Fitting of the appliance or any modifications to the appliance
may only be carried out by a competent person.
B Flue systems must not be modified in any way.
Maintenance
B We recommend that you take out a maintenance contract
with a competent installer and have the appliance serviced at
regular intervals.
B Ensure that your Service Engineer uses only genuine spare
parts!
Combustible materials
B Do not store or use any combustible materials (paper, thinners, paints etc.) in the vicinity of the appliance.

Safety precautions
Health and safety
B This appliance contains no asbestos products.
B There is no potential hazard due to the appliance being electrically unsafe.
B There are no substances used in the construction that are a
potential hazard in relation to the COSHH Regulations (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations).
Combustion Air/Ambient Air

General notes
To get the best from your appliance please read these instructions
carefully.
Central heating systems
During the first few hours of operation of the central heating system, check that all radiators are being heated at an even rate. If the
top of a radiator is at a lower temperature than the bottom then it
should be vented by releasing air through the venting screw at the
top of the radiator. Ask your installer to show you how this is done.
Repeated venting will reduce the quantity of water in the system
and this must be replenished for safe and satisfactory operation of
the appliance. An open vented system will re-fill automatically.
Should water leaks be found in the system or excessive venting is
required then a service engineer must be contacted to inspect the
installation and rectify any fault.
Only additives that are compatible with aluminium may be used in
the system. Any incompatible additive used will invalidate the
guarantee. Contact Fernox or Sentinel for further details.
Condensate drain
This is a condensing appliance and the terminal will, at times, give
out a plume of water vapour. This is quite normal.
The appliance produces quantities of condense which is discharged regularly through the siphon.
Ventilation
This is a room sealed appliance and does not require any air for
combustion from inside the house. If the appliance is fitted into a
cupboard or a compartment is built around the appliance after
installation then the compartment must be separated from the
boiler space by a perforated non-combustible partition as
described in BS6798.
Notwithstanding the requirements of BS6798, there is no need
for ventilation openings to be provided in the compartment
because of the low heat loss from the casing.
Do not allow the flue terminal fitted on the outside wall to become
obstructed or damaged.

General notes
Clearances
Your installer will have provided adequate space around the appliance for safety and servicing access. Do not restrict this space
with the addition of cupboards, shelves etc. next to the appliance.

Room thermostat
A room thermostat should be fitted to control the central heating.
Refer to the instructions supplied with the thermostat for information on siting and setting.
Thermostatic radiator valves
It is recommended that this type of valve is fitted to all the radiators. It is a requirement that they are fitted, at least, in the sleeping
areas.They should conform to the requirements of BS2767:10.
Time Control
Separate time control of the space heating and the hot water system is required using a twin-channel programmer or two or more
separate timers.
Cylinder Thermostat
A cylinder thermostat must be fitted to the cylinder which, when
used with a motorised valve, will give close control of the water
temperature.

If the display alternates between -II- and the boiler
flow temperature, the trap filling programme is
active.
The trap filling programme ensures that the condensation trap is
filled after the appliance has been installed or after the appliance
has been out of use for a long period. For that reason, the appliance remains at minimum heating output for 15 minutes.
Switching off
B Switch off the appliance at the master switch (0).
The green indicator lamp goes out.

Tips on saving energy

Tips on saving energy
Heating economically
The boiler is designed to provide a high level of comfort while
keeping gas consumption and the resulting environmental effect
as low as possible. The gas supply to the burner is controlled
according to the level of demand for heat. The boiler continues to
operate with a low flame if the demand for heat reduces. The technical term for this process is modulating control. Modulating control keeps temperature fluctuations small and provides even
distribution of heat throughout the home. This means that the
boiler may stay on for relatively long periods but will use less gas
than an appliance that continually switches on and off.
Central heating systems with room thermostats/thermostatic radiator valves
The temperature control on the boiler should be set to the maximum rated temperature of the central heating system or to position “E”, when the maximum central heating water temperature
obtained is 75°C.
The temperature can be set individually in each room (except primary room with the room thermostat) using the thermostatic radiator valves. If you wish to have a lower temperature in the primary
room than in the other rooms, leave the room thermostat at the set
temperature and turn down the radiator using the radiator valve.
Reduced-output operation
Considerable fuel savings can be made by slightly reducing the
room temperature. Lowering the temperature by 1 °C can bring
about energy savings of up to 5 %. However, it is not advisable to
allow the room temperature to fall below +15 °C. The room temperature for reduced-output mode can be set separately on the
room thermostat. Instructions are given in the control unit operating instructions.

General Information
Hot water
A lower setting on the hot water cylinder thermostat can result in
considerable energy savings.
