1.0 Warnings
1.1
In an Emergency
If a water or gas leak occurs or is suspected, the boiler
can be isolated at the inlet valves as follows;
1. Turn off the electrical supply and turn the selector
switch on the facia box to the OFF position.
Gas Tap
2. Using a suitable open ended spanner or screwdriver
turn the square on the gas tap to the left to isolate the
gas supply at the boiler (Fig. 1).
3. The isolating valves are positioned under the boiler
and can be closed by turning their taps to the right
towards the wall (Fig. 2).

2.0 Introduction
2.1
Introduction
1. Your Baxi Combi Instant 80 HE or 105 HE is a gas
fired, room sealed, powered flue condensing combination
boiler, providing central heating for your home and mains
fed domestic hot water to taps and shower. It is fully
automatic and does not have a pilot light.
2. Priority is given to the hot water mode - when a hot
water tap is turned on the supply of heat to the central
heating circuit is interrupted.
Hinged Lower
Door Panel
Facia Panel
3. Due to the high efficiency and resultant low flue gas
temperature when in condensing mode a white plume of
condensate will be emitted from the terminal. This will be
particularly evident during periods of low outside
temperature.

3. The stored hot water is part of the primary circuit. This
is not supplied as domestic hot water, which is fresh
mains water heated by a heat exchanger within the boiler.
4. The stored primary hot water temperature is
maintained whilst the boiler is in operation. During a
period when there is no demand for heating or hot water
the temperature of the stored primary hot water will
eventually fall. The boiler will operate occasionally in
order to maintain the temperature. This is indicated by
the domestic hot water mode neon flashing (item 13 of
Fig. 3).

As well as the on/off/reset selector switch, central heating
temperature control knob, pre-heat control and pressure
gauge, the facia incorporates ten neon indicator lights.
2. Neons 12 to 15 indicate the operational status of the
boiler. Neons 6 to 11 have a dual function, indicating the
temperature of the central heating water when constantly
illuminated. If a fault develops the appropriate neon will
begin to flash. Refer to Sections 3.3 to 3.7.

Temperature Control
1. Central Heating: The central heating hot water flow
temperature can be adjusted between 30° C (± 5° C)
minimum and 85° C (± 5° C) maximum.
2. Turn the control knob clockwise to increase the
temperature (Fig. 9).
3. In normal winter usage we recommend that the
central heating temperature be set at maximum.
4. Domestic Hot Water Pre-Heat: To enjoy optimum
performance of the boiler the pre-heat control should
be set fully clockwise to the ON position (Fig. 10).
When there is a demand for hot water it will be supplied
at approximately 65° C instantaneously.

boiler will supply hot water at approximately 44° C
instantaneously. At a position 180° from clockwise (i.e.
straight down) the hot water will be supplied at 52° C
instantaneously.
7. When the control is set anywhere between 15°
clockwise from the OFF position and the ON position,
the pre-heat feature will operate.
8. With the control in the OFF position (Fig. 11) the preheat feature will not operate. Hot water will be supplied
at approximately 50° C.

condensate drain (Fig. 12).
2. Turn the selector switch fully anti-clockwise against
the spring pressure to the ‘Reset’ position for at least
two seconds and release (Fig. 13). Set the selector to the
required position to light the boiler.
3. If the flame failure light illuminates repeatedly a fault is
indicated with either the boiler, the gas supply or the
condensate drain. Your Installer or Service Engineer
should be called as soon as possible.

Safety Thermostats
1. Your Baxi Combi Instant 80 HE or 105 HE is fitted
with additional safety devices, which shut down the
boiler in the event of the system, the boiler or the flue
overheating. The safety thermostat neon ( ) will light
in this instance (Fig. 14).
2. To reset: Turn the selector fully anti-clockwise against
the spring pressure to the ‘Reset’ position for at least
two seconds and release (Fig. 15). Set the selector to the
required position to light the boiler.
Fig. 14
3. If after turning the selector to the ‘Reset’ position the
boiler does not relight or the safety thermostat operates
repeatedly, causing boiler shutdown, a fault is indicated.
Your Installer or Service Engineer should be contacted as
soon as possible.
3.5
Air Flow Monitor
1. The boiler is fitted with an air pressure sensing device.
This monitors the flue system.
2. If the neon illuminates (
) it indicates that the flue
or flue terminal is blocked or obstructed in some way, or
that there is an internal fault. If there is no external
blockage of the flue terminal that can be easily removed
contact your Installer or Service Engineer (Fig. 14).

* NOTE: The boiler can be operated with a clearance
of 5mm at the right. This is also sufficient for routine
maintenance. However a clearance of 20mm is
required if it is necessary to remove the secondary
heat exchanger. This should be considered when siting
the appliance and in the event of any subsequent
alteration in the area of installation.
2. These areas must not be obstructed in any way.
Blocking the clearance spaces may result in the boiler
overheating and damage may occur.

3. The gas burning compartment of your boiler is
completely sealed from the room in which it is fitted.
Products from the combustion of gas are vented to the
outside through the flue terminal which must be kept free
from obstruction as this would interfere with the correct
operation of the boiler.
4. The boiler may be installed in a cupboard if these
minimum clearances are kept. The compartment should
be large enough to house the boiler and ancillary
equipment only.
