GENERAL INFORMATION
SERVICING
Ensure that the service engineer completes the Service Record in the Benchmark Checklist after each service. The
Benchmark Checklist and service interval record can be found at the rear of the Installation, Commissioning and
Servicing Instructions.
• The boiler must be serviced regularly by a competent, qualified person, such as a Worcester service engineer or other Gas Safe
registered engineer.
• Always use original spares, to help maintain the efficiency, safety and reliability of the boiler and have the Service Record
completed in the Benchmark Checklist.
The completed Benchmark Checklist will be required in the event of any guarantee work and may be required by the local Building
Control Inspector.
BENCHMARK STANDARD
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” is dispatched with every boiler. 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 manufacturer's instructions.
The log book provides space for the recording of regular servicing of the boiler/heating system and this can become a valuable
document when, for example, you wish to sell the property. The log book will show a potential purchaser that the heating system
has received regular professional maintenance and servicing during its lifetime.
The Benchmark initiative aims to:
• Raise standards among professional installers
• Build and maintain high safety standards in the industry
• Improve customer satisfaction levels
• Make a contribution to the nation's commitment to climate change

Reset setting a fault condition
Due to the internal safety systems of your Greenstar iSystem Compact boiler, some codes cannot be cleared by a simple reset.
Please contact Worcester, Bosch Group for further assistance.
When calling Worcester, Bosch Group about a fault it may be useful to quote the alert code and three digit number under the alert
code, e.g. EA and 227.
If there is a fault that cannot be reset by you, the user, then a service engineer visit will be necessary.
7.1 EXTREME COLD WEATHER
In some instances where the condensate pipe work is run externally or in an unheated area, such as a garage, the condensate pipe
work can be at risk of freezing, even if well insulated.
A frozen/blocked condensate pipe will cause the boiler to shut down.
WARNING: Falling hazard!
Failure to follow this guidance may result in personal injury.
▶ Only attempt to thaw a condense pipe that is at ground level, and that is easily accessible.
▶ Never attempt to thaw a condense pipe that is at height.
CAUTION: Pipe damage
▶ DO NOT use boiling water to thaw the condensate pipe!
If the condensate pipe has frozen:
▶ Locate the blockage.
It is likely that the pipe is frozen at the most exposed point outside the building or where there is an obstruction to flow.
This could be the open end of the pipe, at a bend or elbow, or where there is a sag in the pipe in which condensate can collect.
The location of the blockage should be identified as closely as possible before taking further action.
▶ Thaw the frozen pipe.
The pipe can be thawed by applying a hot water bottle, a microwaveable heating pack (the sort used for muscular aches and
pains) or a cloth soaked in hot water to the exterior of the pipe, close to the point of blockage.
Hot water, but not boiling, can also be poured onto the pipe from a watering can or similar container.
▶ Once the pipe has been thawed the boiler must be reset, press the reset button for one second and wait two to three minutes for
the boiler to restart.
▶ If the boiler does not restart, contact Worcester, Bosch Group Appointments team on: 0844 892 3000.
▶ Contact your installer in order to find a permanent solution to the problem.

TIPS ON ENERGY SAVING
10 TIPS ON ENERGY SAVING
HEATING ECONOMICALLY
The boiler provides a high level of comfort whilst keeping gas consumption and the environment effects as low as possible.
The gas supply to the burner is controlled according to the level of demand for heat. The boiler operates with a low flame if the
demand for heat reduces. The technical term for this process is modulating control.
Modulating control reduces temperature fluctuations and provides an even distribution of heat throughout the home. This means
that the boiler may stay on for relatively long periods of time but will use less gas than a boiler that continually switches on and off.
CENTRAL HEATING SYSTEMS WITH ROOM THERMOSTAT/THERMOSTATIC RADIATOR VALVES
With modern heating systems set around a 20°C heat loss, the optimum setting for a condensing boiler will be approximately
between the first and second segment on the central heating temperature control. The system must be balanced correctly and the
radiators may need upgrading. This allows the boiler to condense as much as possible for the central heating system.
The temperature of each room can be set individually (except primary room with the room thermostat) using the thermostatic
radiator valves.
ROOM THERMOSTATS
Reducing the setting of the room thermostat by 1°C can reduce fuel consumption by up to 10%.
NEW CONTROL SYSTEMS
Upgrade your heating control system if necessary with the latest equipment available.
ROOF INSULATION
Around 30% of the heat loss from a property is through the roof. Replace any old insulation with new insulation, preferably of around
200mm thickness or more.
WINDOW FRAMES
Single glazed windows, particularly those with steel frames, can lose a great deal of heat. Consideration should be given to
replacement with PVCu or wooden framed double glazed units.
RADIATORS
If a radiator is sited underneath a window, its performance will be affected if the curtains are allowed to drape over the radiator.
Shelves fitted above or in front of the radiator should also be avoided.
It is advisable to manually adjust all thermostatic radiator valves every 2 - 3 months to prevent them sticking. Ensure radiator valves
are correctly set and not damaged.
DRAUGHTS
Try to ensure that draughts around doors, windows, letterboxes and keyholes etc. are
reduced by using a suitable draught excluder.
WARNING: Air vents
▶ Do not block or seal any air vents that are installed to ensure that the central heating boiler operates safely.
CURTAINS
Lined curtains, or heavier full length curtains can provide excellent insulation. However,
always ensure that the curtains do not drape over radiators.

GLOSSARY
12 GLOSSARY
Central heating systems
All radiators must be heated at an even rate. If the top of a radiator is at a lower temperature than the bottom then it should be bled
by releasing air through the bleed screw at the top of the radiator.
Ask your installer to show you how this is done.
This boiler is fitted to a sealed system. Should water leaks be found or if excessive bleeding is required, then a service engineer must
be contacted to inspect the installation and rectify any fault.
Only additives that are compatible with aluminium may be used in the system. Any incompatible additive used will invalidate the
guarantee.
Optional Integral Diverter Valve
When the Integral Diverter Valve accessory is installed, the demands for central heating and hot water can be controlled from the
boiler. The flow temperature for the domestic hot water cylinder can be set and adjusted using the hot water temperature control
on the boiler fascia.
Pluming and Condensate drain
This is a condensing boiler and the flue terminal will, at times give out a plume of water vapour. This is quite normal.
The boiler produces condensate which is discharged regularly by a syphon within the boiler via a plastic pipe to a drain. This pipe
must not be blocked or altered in any way.
Room thermostat / programmer
A room thermostat / programmer must be fitted to control the central heating. This controls the times and temperatures of the
central heating, preventing the boiler from firing unnecessarily. Refer to the instructions supplied with the thermostat and
programmer for further information.
Thermostatic radiator valves
Thermostatic radiator valves must be fitted in sleeping accommodation. It is recommended that this type of valve is fitted to all but
one of the radiators. The remaining radiator, where the room thermostat is located, must be uncontrolled and left open.
Pump over run function
After the boiler has finished a demand for central heating or hot water, the pump may continue to run for a short while to dissipate
the heat from within the boiler.
Pump anti-seizure
If there has been no heating demand for 24 hours the boiler will run the system pump for a few seconds to reduce the possibility of
pump seizure during long periods of inactivity.
