1. GENERAL INFORMATION
MTS (GB) Limited support the
initiative. Your installer will give you, and
show you how to use, a logbook which will
give you important information about your
boiler, and heating system. Please have
this logbook to hand whenever you
contact a service engineer or us.
All CORGI Registered Installers carry a
CORGI ID card, and have a registration
number. Both should be recorded in
your boiler Logbook. You can check
your installer is CORGI registered by
calling CORGI direct on :- (01256)
372300.
This is a combined appliance for the
production of central heating (C.H.) and
domestic hot water (D.H.W.). This
appliance must be used only for the
purpose for which it is designed. The
manufacturer declines all liability for
damage caused by improper or negligent
4
use.
Do not allow children or inexperienced
persons to use the appliance without
supervision.
If you smell gas in the room, do not turn
on light switches, use the telephone or
any other object which might cause
sparks.
Open doors and windows immediately to
ventilate the room.
Shut the gas mains tap (on the gas meter)
or the valve of the gas cylinder and call
your Gas Supplier immediately.
If you are going away for a long period of
time, remember to shut the mains gas tap
or the gas cylinder valve.
Before any intervention within the
boiler it is first necessary to cut off the
electrical power supply by turning the
external switch to “OFF”.
This manual may be kept in the front
panel of the boiler.

2. OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
HELPFUL SUGGESTIONS
CAUTION
Installation, start-up, adjustments
and maintenance must be performed
by a competent person only, in
accordance with the current Gas
Safety
(Installation
&
Use)
Regulations and the instructions
provided. Improper installation may
cause damage or injury to
individuals, animals and personal
property, for which the manufacturer
will not be held liable.
To ensure efficient and safe
operation it is recommended that
the boiler is serviced annually by a
competent person.
If it is known or suspected that a
fault exists on the appliance, it must
not be used until the fault has been
corrected by a competent person.
8
To get the most out of your boiler, we
have provided you with some useful
advice
on
proper
use
and
maintenance:
- Periodically check the system
pressure using the pressure gauge
“M”, make sure that the pressure is
between 1.0 and 1.5 bar (the blue
part on the gauge) when the system
is off and cool. The warning L.E.D.
“L” will indicate if the pressure is
below the minimum recommended
M
UT009A
value. Consult your installer for
checking and refilling the system.
- The outer panels of the unit's case
must only be cleaned with a damp
cloth. Do not use abrasive cleaners.
The control panel can be wiped with
either a damp or dry cloth. Spray
polishes must not be used on the
control panel surface or knobs. Care
must be taken in preventing any
liquid entering the appliance.
PRACTICAL TIPS
- If the water is very hard, it is
recommended that a water softener
be added to the system so as to
reduce the formation of limescale in
the boiler exchangers. This will
ensure that the efficiency of the unit
remains the same over time,
reducing gas consumption and
maintenance costs.
- If the boiler should be out of use for
a
prolonged
period,
it
is
recommended that the electrical
power supply be disconnected and
that the external gas cock be closed.
If low temperatures are expected,
the boiler and system pipe work
should be drained in order to prevent
frost damage.
- To improve comfort and take full
advantage of the heat produced by
the boiler, it is recommended that an
external (room) thermostat be
installed.
- It is good practice to clean and
service the appliance and central
heating system every year.
Call an Authorised Service Centre.

mode
(position “C”).
The economy mode
is the normal state
for the operation of
the boiler, since the domestic water is
heated up only when a tap is turned on.
The comfort mode is a special
operating state, because the water
contained in the secondary exchanger
and in the primary exchanger is kept in
a preheated condition, thereby allowing
a quicker delivery of domestic water
when required. The latter is therefore
the more convenient choice.

3. USEFUL INFORMATION
AND TROUBLESHOOTING
BOILER
SHUTDOWN SITUATIONS
The boiler is equipped with safety
devices that intervene in certain
situations and shut it off. Most of these
situations are communicated by means
of the L.E.D.s and at times the user
may be able to remedy them.
SHUTDOWN
DUE TO IGNITION
FAILURE
In the event that
the
automatic
ignition of the
burner
has
failed, the red
J
RESET
H
F
UT011Ai
14
L.E.D. “F” will illuminate. In order to
reset the ignition, the button “H” must
be pressed and released. Should the
boiler fail to ignite a second time, check
that the external gas cock is open. If the
problem
persists,
contact
an
Authorised Service Centre.
SHUTDOWN
DUE TO OVERHEATING
In the event that the safety limit is
exceeded for the temperature of the
water in the boiler’s primary exchanger,
the thermostat shuts off the boiler and
the red L.E.D. “J” illuminates.
To remedy this situation, wait a few
minutes to allow the exchanger to cool
down, then press and release the reset
button “H”.
If this situation occurs frequently,
contact an Authorised Service Centre.
SHUTDOWN
DUE TO INSUFFICIENT
WATER CIRCULATION
If the red L.E.D. “L” is
L
illuminated and the
boiler is off, one
possible cause for this
UT011Al
state is an insufficient
pressure of water in the system.
Check the system pressure on the
pressure gauge “M” and if it is less
than 0.5 bar, consult your installer for
checking and refilling the system.
Then turn off and turn back on the
boiler by means of the selector knob
“A”. If the boiler does not start up
again and the L.E.D. “L” remains
illuminated, contact an Authorised
Service Centre.
If there are frequent drops in pressure
within the system, have a plumber
check the heating system for possible
water leaks.
TEMPORARY
SHUTDOWN DUE TO
DEFECTIVE DISCHARGE OF
EXHAUST FUMES
The boiler is fitted with safety devices,
which in the event of a defective
discharge
of
exhaust
fumes,
automatically interrupts the gas supply,
thereby shutting off the boiler.
The shut-off of the boiler is temporary
and is indicated by the illumination of
the yellow L.E.D. “E” for a period of
about 15 minutes.
Once this time period has passed and
the discharge state of exhaust fumes
has returned to normal, the boiler
automatically turns back on.
15
IMPORTANT!
If this situation occurs frequently,
contact an Authorised Service Centre.
so that they may check that the exhaust
fumes are being expelled correctly and
that the area is ventilated properly.
ANTI-FROST
DEVICE
The boiler is fitted with a device which,
in the event that the water temperature
goes below 5°C, the three-way diverter
valve switches to domestic hot water
and the burner turns on at minimum
power until the water in the boiler has
reached a temperature of about 50°C.
This device is only activated when the
boiler is operating perfectly and
- the system pressure is sufficient;
- the boiler is powered electrically;
- gas is being distributed.

4. MAINTENANCE
Schedule an annual maintenance
check-up for the boiler with a
competent person.
Correct maintenance always results in
savings in the cost of running the
system.
5. CHANGE OF GAS TYPE
Our boilers are designed to function
either with Natural Gas (methane) or
LPG gas. If you need to changeover
from one gas to the other, one of our
Authorised Service Centres should be
contacted.

clock border (on setting), the circuit is
closed (switch on) for a period of 15
minutes and then the boiler starts if the
room thermostat (if installed) or the
heating thermostat require heat

6. TIME CLOCK
UT011Ap
NOTE: the time clock is for central
heating control only.
The time clock is provided with 96
switches, called riders, each of which
covers a time interval of 15 minutes
(four per hour).

EXAMPLE
To set the heating of your home in
the time interval from 7.00 am to
9.30 am and from 7.00 pm to 10.00
pm every day:
- rotate the outer ring of the clock in a
clockwise direction until the correct
time of day (24h) lines up with the
arrow on the clock (at approx. 2
o’clock position);
- under no circumstances should the
minute hand be moved manually;
- make sure all the switches, i.e. the
riders, are placed on the inside of the
17
clock border;
- pull outward the riders for 7.00 am
and 9.30 am, and then all riders
between these two;
- repeat this for 7.00 pm and 10.00
pm.
Other heating intervals may be set in
the same way.
The timer has approximately 150
hours of battery back up for power
failure.
The clock is provided with a selector
switch with three positions (see figure):
“I”
1. Position

position, the clock
circuit is always

2. Position
