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.
HELPFUL SUGGESTIONS
K
4
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 “K”, make sure that
the pressure is between 1.0 and 1.5 bar (the blue part on the gauge) when the system
E 02” if the pressure is below the minimum
is off and cool. The display will indicate “E
recommended 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.

The selector knob “E” allows the user to choose the economy mode (position “E”) or the
comfort 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 pre-heated condition,
thereby allowing a quicker delivery of Domestic Hot Water when required.

SHUTDOWN DUE TO INSUFFICIENT WATER CIRCULATION
E 02” on the display.
This anomaly is indicated by “E
One of the possible causes of this shutdown situation could be the lack of water
in the boiler or water circulation failure in the primary heating circuit.
Check the system pressure on the pressure gauge “K” and, if it is less than 0.5
bar, try bringing the system pressure up to a mean value
of 1.0 bar by opening the water inlet valve. Then reset by K
turning the boiler off and then back on by pressing the
button “D”.
Other Shutdown Situations
Should a shutdown situation indicated on the display by the following letters and
figures occur, E04, E05, E06, E07, E08, E09, E20, E21, E33, E34 contact one
of our Authorised Service Centres.
If instead the display shows one of the shutdown situations indicated by the
following letters and figures, A77, A78, A97, A98, A99, try resetting the boiler by
pressing the reset button “D”. If the boiler shuts off again, contact one of our
Authorised Service Centres.
ANTI-FROST
DEVICE
The boiler is fitted with a device which, in the event that the water temperature falls below
8˚C the pump activates and runs until a temperature of 18˚C is attained. In the event that
the water temperature falls below 3˚C, the diverter valve switches to Domestic Hot Water
and the burner fires and runs on minimum power until a temperature of 33˚C is attained.
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
5. CHANGE OF GAS TYPE
Schedule an annual maintenance check-up for the boiler with a CORGI registered
Service Engineer.
Correct maintenance always results in savings in the cost of running the system.
Our boilers are designed to function either with Natural Gas (methane) or L.P.G. gas. If
you need to changeover from one gas to the other, one of our Authorised Service Centres
should be contacted.

ANOTE:
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).
When a rider is switched from the inside (off setting) to the outside of the 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 (heating
function on).
6. TIME CLOCK
UT011Ap
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 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):
1. Position “I” CONSTANT: in this position, the clock circuit is always
closed (switch on), therefore the boiler will constantly be on and will only
shut off upon the request of the room thermostat (if installed) or the
heating thermostat;
