Hot Water Mode:
The appliance operates to supply only domestic hot water when the
heating temperature mode is fully anti-clockwise, at the off position or the timer
is programmed to OFF mode.
When a demand is made for hot water by opening a tap or shower, the flow
switch will energise the pump and circulate primary hot water around the boiler and
water to water heat exchanger. The burner will light at its maximum setting.
When hot water is no longer required the appliance pump and fan may
continue to operate to dissipate the residual heat within the boiler.
A flow restrictor is fitted within the appliance which limits a hot water
delivery rate to a maximum of 9.0 (±15%) litres/minute (2.0 gallons/minute).

When a demand is made for
heating by the system controls
(i.e. a programmer or room
thermostat). the pump will
energise circulating primary
water around the heating
system and the burner will
light. The heat output from
the appliance in this mode has
been factory set to maximum.
The appliance will operate as
necessary to maintain the
temperature of the radiators
at the level set by the
adjustment of the Heating
Temperature Control Knob.
(See Fig. 3.)
If the system no longer
requires output to maintain
the desired room temperature,
the burner will extinguish.
The pump will continue to
run for a short period to
dissipate the residual heat
from the appliance and then
switch off.
The pump will run for
the duration of the demand
and only shut off if the room
thermostat or programmer is
satisfied.
The appliance will supply
heat to the central heating
system as required. A demand
for hot water at a tap or
shower will override the
central heating function for
the period of the domestic
hot water demand.
NOTE: If in doubt about
the use of the controls ask
your installer to assist you.

It is the law, in GB, that all gas appliances must be 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. The
manufacturer’s notes must not be taken, in any way, as over-riding
statutory obligations.
In GB, a competent person is someone registered with CORGI. All
CORGI registered installers carry a CORGI ID card and have a
registration number. Both should be recorded in the BENCHMARK
checklist. You can check that your installer is CORGI registered by
calling CORGI on 01256 372300.
WARNING: This appliance must be earthed and protected by a 3 amp fuse.
ELECTRICITY SUPPLY: 230V ~ 50Hz
IMPORTANT: To get the best from your Worcester 26CDi Xtra please read
these instructions carefully.
NOTE: In the event of a fault the appliance should not be used until the fault
has been corrected by a competent person.
BENCHMARK
The Benchmark initiative is a code of practice to encourage the
correct installation, commissioning and servicing of domestic central
heating boilers and system equipment.
A checklist can be found in the back of every installation
manual. This is a vital document that needs to 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.
In Eire the declaration found in IS 813 must be completed.
Without completion of the checklist and/or declaration,
manufacturers may refuse to respond to a call-out request. It is
important that the checklist and/or declaration are fully completed by
your installer.
GENERAL DESCRIPTION
(See Fig.1.)
The WORCESTER 26CDi Xtra is a condensing, combined domestic hot water
and central heating appliance. It consists of a gas fired boiler with a secondary, high
efficient heat exchanger, having a varying output of between 6.7 kW and 26 kW. A
water to water heat exchanger to provide domestic hot water via the boiler,
circulating pump and water diverting valve. All the necessary controls to provide
mains fed domestic hot water and central heating.
The appliances are supplied as standard with a manual operating
switch. Alternatively a facia mounted programmer may have been fitted.
14
The appliance can operate in one of two modes. Hot water only or hot water
and central heating.
PLUMING: Because the appliance operates at high efficiency a white
plume of condensate will be emitted from the flue terminal which is fitted
outside the dwelling. The pluming will be more noticeable during cooler weather
and will occur every time the appliance is used.

The position of this knob will determine the temperature of the
water delivered at the domestic hot water taps between the ‘0’ and
the ‘MAX’ position.
By slightly reducing the flow of domestic water from the tap, the
delivery temperature of the water will be further increased. This is of
particular advantage in the winter, for example to increase bath water
temperature. Also this will provide an added advantage of reducing
the delay before hot water is obtained.

GENERAL NOTES
CENTRAL HEATING SYSTEM
A diagnostic system is provided which gives a flashing light
display on the facia panel. Press the reset button to attempt to restart
the appliance. If the appliance does not return to normal operation
then contact your installer/engineer or Worcester Bosch advising of
the appliance serial number and the flashing light sequence, i.e.
which lights flash and at what speed.
More than 30% of all calls made to our contact centre reporting
appliance faults or breakdowns prove to be false alarms, as there is often
a simple explanation for the apparent malfunction.
So, to help you save time and money – not to mention frustration
and inconvenience – please refer to the General Information, Notes and
Lighting Instructions ensuring all controls are set correctly.
If, after following the instructions the appliance still fails to operate
correctly call the Worcester Contact Centre on 08457 256206.
Arrangements will be made for an engineer to call as soon as possible.
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.
During the first few hours of operation of the central heating
system, check that all radiators are being heated at an even rate.
Should the upper area of a radiator be at a lower temperature than the
base of the radiator, it should be vented by releasing air through the
venting screw at the top of each radiator. Make sure your installer
shows you how to carry out the operation. Repeated venting will
reduce the quantity of water in the system and this must be
replenished for safe and satisfactory operation of the appliance.
Should water leaks be found in the system or excessive venting be
required from any radiator, your installer or heating engineer should
be contacted and the system corrected.
Fig. 2.
CALL-OUT CHARGES
All of our field service engineers are factory trained.
If you request a visit from an engineer and your appliance has been
installed within the last 12 months, no charge will be made for parts
and/or labour, providing:
• The appliance was commissioned correctly on installation.
• An appliance fault is found and the appliance has been installed
within the past 12 months.
A call-out charge will be made where:
• The appliance has been installed for over 12 months, or
• Our Field Service Engineer finds no fault with the appliance (see
note), or
• The cause of breakdown is with other parts of your
plumbing/heating system, or with equipment not supplied by Worcester.
NOTE: Invoices for attendance and/or repair work carried out on
your appliance by any third party will not be accepted.
SEALED HEATING SYSTEM
The appliance will be fitted to a sealed heating
system which is pre-pressurised. Your installer will
advise you on the minimum and maximum pressure that
should be indicated on the pressure gauge. See Fig. 3.
Check regularly that this pressure is maintained and
contact your installer or maintenance engineer if there is
a permanent significant drop in pressure indicated on
the gauge. If the system loses pressure it should be repressurised as instructed by the installer (N.B. Maximum
pressure 2.5 bar).

ROOM THERMOSTAT
A room thermostat may be fitted for control of the central heating
temperature. It will be located in one room of the home. The method
of setting a room thermostat varies with the type and manufacture.
Refer to the instructions supplied with the room thermostat.
THERMOSTATIC RADIATOR VALVES
If thermostatic radiator valves are fitted to the system then they
must conform to the requirements of BS2767. The radiator located in
the room where the room thermostat is sited must be controlled by a
thermostatic radiator valve.
SHOWERS, BIDETS, TAPS AND MIXING
VALVES
Standard hot and cold taps and mixing valves used with the
appliance must be suitable for operating at mains pressure.
Thermostatically controlled shower valves will guard against the flow
of water at too high a temperature.
If using a pressure equalising valve, set the Domestic Hot Water
temperature control knob to the ‘MAX’ position.
Hot and cold mains fed water can be supplied direct to an
overrim flushing bidet subject to local water company requirements.
With all mains fed systems the flow of water from the individual
taps will vary with the number of outlets operated simultaneously
and the cold water mains supply pressure to the property. Flow
balancing using ‘Ball-o-Fix’ type valves is recommended to avoid an
excessive reduction in flow to individual outlets.
For further information contact the Worcester Technical
Helpline.
OVERHEAT CUT-OFF
THERMOSTAT
Your installer will have provided a plastic condensate drain pipe
from the appliance.
The pipe should discharge into the household drainage system,
outside gully or soak away.
CONDENSATE DRAIN
Do not use abrasive cleaners on the outer casing. Use a damp
cloth and a little detergent.
CLEANING
If a gas leak exists, or is suspected, turn off the gas supply to the
appliance at the service cock and consult your local service engineer.
Do not touch any electrical switches to turn them either on or off.
Open all windows and doors. Do not smoke. Extinguish all naked lights.
WARNING
Annual servicing is important in order to ensure continuing high
efficiency and long life for your appliance. In the event of any
difficulty in making suitable servicing arrangements, Worcester
personnel or other competent persons will be happy to discuss regular
servicing arrangements and offer a comprehensive maintenance
contract.
SERVICE
If the appliance is not to be used for a long period of time and
there is a likelihood of freezing, then the appliance should be drained.
The Worcester Technical Helpline will advise you on suitable frost
precautions. For short periods the built-in frost protection of the
appliance will be adequate.
FROST PRECAUTIONS
This may be fitted with a speed adjuster. If so it will be factory
set at maximum and should not be changed.
CIRCULATING PUMP
This is a room sealed appliance and any ventilation openings in a
wall or door must not be obstructed. Do not allow the flue terminal
fitted on the outside wall to become obstructed or damaged.
NOTE: Do not place anything on top of the appliance. If the
appliance is fitted in a compartment do not use the compartment for
storage purposes unless it conforms to the requirements of
BS 6798:1987: Section 6. It is essential that the airing space is
separated from the boiler space by a perforated non-combustible
partition as described in BS 6798:1987.

The appliance can be reset by pressing the reset button and
holding in for 5 seconds.
IGNITION LOCKOUT
The appliance will enter a lockout condition in the event of the
burner failing to ignite.
If the burner fails to light within a preset time of 10 seconds the
electricity supply to the gas valve will be interrupted.
If ignition lockout has occurred, the central heating demand
indicator will flash slowly (approximately once per second).
The appliance can be reset by pressing the reset button and
holding in for 5 seconds. Check that the gas supply has not been
interrupted.
If this condition continues to occur, then call a service engineer.
AIR FLOW DEVICE
The appliance will enter a lockout condition in the event of an air
flow fault.
If the controls fail to detect the correct air flow through the
appliance the electricity supply to the gas valve will be interrupted.
If an air flow fault has occurred, the domestic water demand
indicator will flash (approximately five times per second).
The appliance will try to re-light after a waiting period of
approximately 4 minutes. Check that the flue terminal has not been
obstructed or damaged, and the condensate drain pipe is not blocked
outside with debris.
If this condition continues to occur, then call a service engineer.
REMOVAL AND REPLACEMENT
OF THE FRONT PANEL (See Fig. 4)
Removal:
Holding the panel at the edges, slide it upwards to disengage the
clips and ease the top edge forwards and upwards to raise it clear of
the two pegs on the top edge of the facia.
Replacement:
Locate the two holes in the bottom edge of the front panel over
the two pegs on the top edge of the facia and reverse the removal
procedure.
If the flow of water demanded from both hot and cold service
outlets is dependent upon mains supply, it may not be possible in
some installations to operate all outlets simultaneously.
WATER MAINS FAILURE
It is important to note that in the event of a mains water supply
failure, no tap water will be available until the mains supply is
restored. The appliance can still be used for heating because it is fitted
to a sealed system.
USE IN HARD WATER AREAS
6
Normally there is no need for scale protection. However, in areas
of exceptionally hard water supply it is recommended that an In-Line
scale inhibitor be fitted.
Installation should be strictly in accordance with the
requirements of the local Water Company. An isolating valve to
facilitate servicing should be incorporated.
The water hardness may be determined using the standard test
paper or by reference to the local Water Company.
Further information may be obtained from Worcester Bosch
Technical Helpline.
