Preface

Dear Customer,

Your Buderus 500 Series wall-mounted condensing gas system boiler has been designed and built in accordance with state-of-the-art technological standards and the recognised safety rules. Special focus has been placed on operator convenience in this respect.

Carefully read the safety instructions and operating manual to ensure safe, economic and ecologically beneficial use of the unit.

Due to the high efficiency of the boiler a plume of water vapour may form at the terminal during operation. This is normal.

Functions of the system and operating instructions 4

4 Functions of the system and operating instructions

The installer should familiarize the user with the functions and operation of the heating system and ensure that a complete set of technical documentation is supplied.

5 Maintenance intervals

For optimum, long-term reliable functioning of the heating boiler, and in order to be able to claim under the terms of the manufacturer's warranty, the heating boiler must be inspected and maintained at least once a year (under normal operating conditions) by an officially recognized installation and service engineer. The term "normal operating conditions" means that the heating boiler is used to provide central heating and/or hot water to no more than one single-family dwelling.

In all other cases, the heating boiler must be inspected and maintained by an officially recognised installation service engineer every 2,500 burner operating hours.
