at the end of copper pipes, one with a blanking cap on the
end. Do not operate these taps yet.

4. This loop MUST be connected to the taps. Remove the
blanking cap and set aside.
5. Connect the loop to the taps with the wing nuts. These
should be hand tightened.

6. Carefully open the handles on both taps and check the
boiler pressure gauge. Once the needle on the gauge is
above the 0.5 mark both taps can be closed.

Cleaning the Outer case
The painted panels should be wiped with a damp cloth and
then dried completely. DO NOT USE ABRASIVE
CLEANING AGENTS.
5.2
Protection & Precaution
1. The boiler incorporates an integral frost protection feature
that will operate in both modes. If the boiler temperature falls
below 5° C, then the boiler will operate until the water
temperature has been raised.
2. If a system frost thermostat has been fitted (your installer
will be able to advise you), then to operate correctly and
protect your system, the gas and electricity must be left on and
the appliance set in the central heating mode.
3. The boiler incorporates an integral pump protection feature
which continually monitors the time since the pump last
operated. To prevent seizure, the pump will operate for
approximately 1 minute if it has not run in the last 24 hours.

If a water or gas leak occurs or is suspected, the boiler can
be isolated at the inlet valves as follows;
Fig. 10
Gas Tap
1. Using a suitable open ended spanner, turn the square
nut on the gas tap through 90° (1/4 turn) to isolate the gas
supply at the boiler (Fig. 9).
2. The water isolating valves are positioned under the
boiler and can be closed by turning their taps to the right
towards the wall (Fig. 10).
