Warning
This boiler can be used by children aged 8 years and above and by
persons with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities or lack
of experience and knowledge when they have been given
supervision or instruction concerning the safe use of the device and
understand the resulting risks. Children must not be allowed to play
with the appliance. Cleaning and user maintenance must not be
carried out by children without supervision.
The Benchmark Scheme
Benchmark places responsibilities on both manufacturers and installers. The
purpose is to ensure that customers are provided with the correct equipment for
their needs, that it is installed, commissioned and serviced in accordance with the
manufacturer’s instructions by competent persons and that it meets the
requirements of the appropriate Building Regulations. The Benchmark Checklist
can be used to demonstrate compliance with Building Regulations and should be
provided to the customer for future reference.
Installers are required to carry out installation, commissioning and servicing work
in accordance with the Benchmark Code of Practice which is available from the
Heating and Hotwater Industry Council who manage and promote the Scheme.

Building Regulations and the Benchmark Commissioning
Checklist
Building Regulations (England & Wales) require notification of
the installation of a heating appliance to the relevant Local
Authority Building Control Department. From 1 April 2005 this
can be achieved via a Competent Persons Self Certification
Scheme as an option to notifying the Local Authority directly.
Similar arrangements will follow for Scotland and will apply in
Northern Ireland from 1 January 2006.
The Health & Safety Executive operates the ‘Gas Safe Register’,
a self-certification scheme for gas heating appliances.
These arrangements represent a change from the situation
whereby compliance with Building Regulations was accepted as
being demonstrated by completion of the Benchmark Logbook
(which was then left on site with the customer).
With the introduction of Self Certification Schemes, the
Benchmark Logbook is being withdrawn. However, a similar
document in the form of a commissioning checklist and service
interval record is incorporated at the back of these instructions.
This company is a member of the Benchmark initiative and fully
supports the aims of the programme. Its aim is to improve the
standards of installation and commissioning of central heating
systems in the UK and to encourage the regular servicing of all
central heating systems to ensure safety and efficiency.
Building Regulations require that installations should comply
with manufacturer's instructions. It is therefore important that
the commissioning checklist is completed by the installer. The
relevant section of Building Regulations only relates to
dwellings. Therefore the checklist only applies if the appliance is
being installed in a dwelling or some related structure.
The flowchart opposite gives guidance for installers on the
process necessary to ensure compliance with Building
Regulations.

Safe Manual Handling
General
The following advice should be adhered to, from when first handling the boiler to the final stages of installation, and also during maintenance.
Most injuries as a result of inappropriate handling and lifting are to the back, but all other parts of the body are vulnerable, particularly shoulders, arms and hands.
Health & Safety is the responsibility of EVERYONE.
There is no ‘safe’ limit for one man - each person has different capabilities. The boiler should be handled and lifted by TWO PEOPLE.
Do not handle or lift unless you feel physically able.
Wear appropriate Personal Protection Equipment e.g. protective gloves, safety footwear etc.
Preparation
Co-ordinate movements - know where, and when, you are both going.
Minimise the number of times needed to move the boiler - plan ahead.
Always ensure when handling or lifting the route is clear and unobstructed. If possible avoid steps, wet or slippery surfaces, unlit areas etc. and take special care
on ladders/into lofts.
Technique
When handling or lifting always use safe techniques - keep your back straight, bend your knees. Don’t twist - move your feet, avoid bending forwards and
sideways and keep the load as close to your body as possible.
Where possible transport the boiler using a sack truck or other suitable trolley.
Always grip the boiler firmly, and before lifting feel where the weight is concentrated to establish the centre of gravity, repositioning yourself as necessary. See the
‘Installation’ section of these instructions for recommended lift points.
Remember
The circumstances of each installation are different. Always assess the risks associated with handling and lifting according to the individual conditions.
If at any time when installing the boiler you feel that you may have injured yourself STOP !!
DO NOT ‘work through’ the pain - you may cause further injury.
IF IN ANY DOUBT DO NOT HANDLE OR LIFT THE BOILER - OBTAIN ADVICE OR ASSISTANCE BEFORE PROCEEDING !!

1. Priority is given to the domestic hot water supply. A
demand at a tap or shower will override any central heating
requirement.
2. The flow of water will operate the Hall Effect Sensor
which requests the 3 way valve to change position. This will
allow the pump to circulate the primary water through the
DHW plate heat exchanger.
3. The burner will light automatically and the temperature of
the domestic hot water is controlled by the temperature
sensor.
4. When the domestic hot water demand ceases the burner
will extinguish and the diverter valve will remain in the
domestic hot water mode, unless there is a demand for
central heating.
IMPORTANT: When the selector switch is in the ‘0’
(Off) position the electrical supply to the boiler is isolated.
The boiler will not operate and the integral timer will
require resetting once the selector switch is set to either
Position (i) or Position (ii).

1. The frost protection mode is integral to the appliance and
functions only with the selector switch (see Section 2.1) in
the domestic hot water and central heating position. If the
system temperature falls below 5° C then the boiler will fire
on its minimum setting until a flow temperature of 30° C is
reached. Further protection can be incorporated by using a
system frost thermostat.

details of byelaws and the IRNs.
6.2
Central Heating Circuit
1. The appliance is suitable for fully pumped SEALED SYSTEMS
ONLY.
Treatment of Water Circulating Systems
• All recirculatory water systems will be subject to corrosion
unless an appropriate water treatment is applied. This means
that the efficiency of the system will deteriorate as corrosion
sludge accumulates within the system, risking damage to
pump and valves, boiler noise and circulation problems.
• When fitting new systems flux will be evident within the
system, which can lead to damage of system components.
• BS7593 gives extensive recommendations on system
cleansing and water treatment.
• All systems must be thoroughly drained and flushed out
using an appropriate proprietary flushing agent.
• A suitable inhibitor must then be added to the system.
• All system additives (flushing agents, cleansers, inhibitors
etc.) must comply with the requirements of BS7593. Full
instructions are supplied with the products and for further
information contact the additive manufacturer directly or
consult their website.
Failure to flush and add inhibitor to the system will
invalidate the appliance warranty.
• It is important to check the inhibitor concentration after
installation, system modification and at every service in
accordance with the inhibitor manufacturer. (Test kits are
available from inhibitor stockists.)
• For information or advice regarding any of the above
contact Baxi Customer Support 0344 871 1545.
6.3
Bypass
1. The boiler utilises the primary side of the DHW plate heat
exchanger as an automatic integral bypass.
6.4
System Control
1. The boiler is designed for use in a heating system that
incorporates external controls, i.e. a minimum of a timer
device.
2. Suitable timer kits are available as optional extras.

Expansion Vessel (Central Heating only)
1. The appliance expansion vessel is pre-charged to 0.5 bar.
Therefore, the minimum cold fill pressure is 0.5 bar. The vessel is
suitable for correct operation for system capacities up to 125
litres. For greater system capacities an additional expansion
vessel MUST be fitted.
For GB refer to BS 7074 Pt 1. For IE, the current edition of I.S.
813 “Domestic Gas Installations”.
6.7
Safety Pressure Relief Valve (Fig. 6)
1. The pressure relief valve is set at 3 bar, therefore all pipework,
fittings, etc. should be suitable for pressures in excess of 3 bar and
temperature in excess of 100°C.
2. The pressure relief discharge pipe should be not less than
15mm dia, run continuously downward, and discharge outside the
building, preferably over a drain. It should be routed in such a
manner that no hazard occurs to occupants or causes damage to
wiring or electrical components. If it is anticipated that any part of
the pipe may be subject to freezing it should be suitably insulated.
The end of the pipe should terminate facing down and towards
the wall (Fig. 6a).
The end of the pipe should
terminate facing down and

2. Your attention is drawn to:
for GB: Guidance G17 to G24 and recommendation R17 to R24
of the Water Regulations Guide.
for IE: the current edition of I.S. 813 “Domestic Gas Installations”.
3. The Water Regulations recommendations for England and
Wales prohibits backflow from appliances into the wholesome
water supply due to thermal expansion. However this type of
instantaneous combination boiler, with less than 15 litres of
stored capacity, does not require any backflow prevention device
as any thermal expansion is accommodated within the appliance.
It is possible in certain circumstances that other cold water
demands (e.g. washing machines, flushing of W.C.s) may affect
the DHW function of the boiler. In these instances the fitting of a
backflow prevention device and expansion vessel is
recommended.
4. In instances where the mains water supply incorporates a nonreturn backflow prevention device, or any other device that
includes one*, it is possible for a build-up of pressure to occur.
This may result in damage to the boiler and other appliances. To
prevent damage to the boiler it is strongly recommended that a
suitable mini expansion vessel is fitted on the mains water inlet
between the boiler and the non-return device. *(The
manufacturer of the device should be consulted if there is any
doubt regarding the presence of a non-return feature). Even in
circumstances where a non-return device is not fitted any future
modifications to the mains inlet (e.g. fitting of a water meter)
should be considered and an expansion vessel fitted. Baxi cannot
accept any responsibility for damage to the boiler if these
recommendations are not followed.
5. The boiler’s maximum working mains pressure is 8 bar,
therefore all pipework, connections, fittings, etc. should be
suitable for pressures in excess of 8 bar. A pressure reducing
valve must be fitted for pressures in excess of 8 bar. The
manufacturer of any outlet fittings, such as a shower valve, may
require a lower maximum pressure. The pressure reduction must
take account of all fittings connected to the DHW system.
6.9
Showers
1. If a shower control is supplied from the appliance it should be
of the thermostatic or pressure balanced type. Thermostatic type
shower valves provide the best comfort and guard against water
at too high a temperature. Existing controls may not be suitable refer to the shower valve manufacturer.
6.10
Hard Water Areas
1. Only water that has NOT been artificially softened must used
when filling or re-pressurising the primary system. If the mains
cold water to the property is fitted with an artificial
softening/treatment device the source use to fill or
re-pressurise the system must be upstream of such a device.

• The person carrying out a combustion measurement should
have been assessed as competent in the use of a flue gas
analyser and the interpretation of the results.
• The flue gas analyser used should be one meeting the
requirements of BS7927 or BS-EN50379-3 and be calibrated
in accordance with the analyser manufacturers’ requirements.
• Competence can be demonstrated by satisfactory
completion of the CPA1 ACS assessment, which covers the
use of electronic portable combustion gas analysers in
accordance with BS 7967, Parts 1 to 4.
Check the Combustion Performance (CO/CO2 ratio)
4. Set the boiler to operate at maximum rate as described in
Section 14.1.1 to 14.1.6.
5. Remove the plug from the flue sampling point, insert the
analyser probe and obtain the CO/CO2 ratio. This must be
less than 0.004.
6. If the combustion reading (CO/CO2 ratio) is greater than
this, and the integrity of the complete flue system and
combustion circuit seals has been verified, and the inlet gas
pressure and gas rate are satisfactory either:
• Perform the ‘Annual Servicing - Inspection’ (Section 12.2) &
re-check
• Adjust the gas valve (Section 14.0) & re-check
• Replace the gas valve (Section 13.24) & re-check

17.0 Fault Finding
17.1
NOTE: When instructed to turn the
selector to the reset position turn the
selector switch fully anticlockwise against
the spring pressure to the reset position
and hold for 5 seconds to reset the
boiler.
Initial Fault Finding Checks
1. Check that gas, water and electrical supplies are available
at the boiler.
2. Electrical supply = 230V ~ 50 Hz.
3. CH water system pressurised to 0.5 bar minimum when
the boiler is cold.
4. The preferred minimum gas pressure is 20 mbar.
5. Carry out electrical system checks, i.e. Earth Continuity,
Resistance to Earth, Short Circuit and Polarity with a suitable
meter.
NOTE: These checks must be repeated after any
servicing or fault finding.
6. Ensure all external controls are calling for heat and check
all external and internal fuses. Before any servicing or
replacement of parts, ensure the gas and electrical supplies
are isolated.

Error Codes
1. If a fault occurs on the boiler an error code may be shown
by the facia display.
2. The codes are either two or three digit, preceded by the
letter 'E'. For example, code E133 will be displayed by 'E1'
alternating with '33'. E50 is shown as 'E' then '50'
E20 & E50 indicate faulty components. E28 includes possible
faulty components or blockage.
E110 shows overheat of the primary water and E130
overheat of the flue system.
Testing Air Pressure Switch
3
To check the Air Pressure Switch is operating correctly:During normal operation or standby briefly apply light suction to
the negative pressure spigot (P2). Error Code “E28” should display
whilst suction is applied, and then disappear when the switch is
remade (removal of suction).
2
1
Connect to terminals
1 & 2 (3 not used)
E119 is displayed when the primary water pressure is less
than 0.5 bar.
E133 indicates that the gas supply has been interrupted,
ignition has failed or the flame has not been detected.
E125 is displayed in either of two situations:i) If within 15 seconds of the burner lighting the boiler
temperature has not changed by 1°.
ii) If within 10 minutes of the burner lighting the boiler
temperature twice exceeds the selected temperature by 30°.
In these instances poor primary circulation is indicated.
3. By turning the selector switch to the 'Reset' position for a
minimum of 5 seconds when E110, E130 & E133 are
displayed it is possible to relight the boiler.
P2 - Negative Pressure
4. If this does not have any effect, or the codes are displayed
regularly further investigation is required.
