1.INTRODUCTION
The Logic Combi ESP1 range is a combination boiler providing both
central heating and instantaneous domestic hot water. Featuring
full sequence automatic ignition and fan assisted combustion.
Due to the high efficiency of the boiler, condensate is produced from
the flue gases and this is drained to a suitable disposal point through
a plastic waste pipe at the base of the boiler. A condensate ‘plume’
will also be visible at the flue terminal.

EFFICIENT HEATING SYSTEM OPERATION
The boiler is a high efficiency, condensing appliance which will
automatically adjust its output to match the demand for heat.
Therefore gas consumption is reduced as the heat demand is
reduced.
The boiler condenses water from the flue gases when
operating most efficiently. To operate your boiler efficiently
(using less gas) turn the central heating temperature knob
(B) to the ‘ ‘ position or lower. In winter periods it may be
necessary to turn the knob towards the ‘MAX’ position to meet
heating requirements. This will depend on the house and
radiators used.
3. SYSTEM WATER PRESSURE
The system pressure gauge indicates the
central heating system pressure. If the pressure
is seen to fall below the original installation
pressure of 1-2 bar over a period of time and
continue to fall then a water leak may be
indicated. In this event re-pressurise the system
as shown below. If unable to do so or if the
pressure continues to drop a Gas Safe Registered Engineer or in IE
a Registered Gas Installer (RGII) should be consulted.
THE BOILER WILL NOT OPERATE IF THE PRESSURE HAS
REDUCED TO LESS THAN 0.3 BAR UNDER THIS CONDITION.
Reducing the room thermostat setting by 1ºC can reduce gas
consumption by up to 10%.
To Top up the system :-
WEATHER COMPENSATION
2. Remove the plug and cap and retain.
When the Weather Compensation option is fitted to the system
then the central heating temperature knob (B) becomes
a method of controlling room temperature. Turn the knob
clockwise to increase room temperature and anti-clockwise
to decrease room temperature. Once the desired setting has
been achieved, leave the knob in this position and the system
will automatically achieve the desired room temperature for all
outside weather conditions.
BOILER FROST PROTECTION
The boiler is fitted with frost protection that operates in all
modes, provided the power supply to the boiler is always
turned on. If the water in the boiler falls below 5ºC, the frost
protection will activate and run the boiler to avoid freezing.
The process does not guarantee that all other parts of the
system will be protected.
If a system frost thermostat has been installed, the boiler must
’, for the system frost protection to
be set in winter mode, ‘
run.
If no system frost protection is provided and frost is likely
during a short absence from home it is recommended to leave
the system heating controls or built in programmer (if fitted)
switched on and run at a reduced temperature setting. For
longer periods, the entire system should be drained.
BOILER RESTART
To restart the boiler, when directed in the listed fault codes (see
section 8) press the restart button (G). The boiler will repeat its
ignition sequence. If the boiler still fails to start consult a Gas
Safe Registered Engineer or an IE Registered Gas Installer
(RGII).
1. Ensure both A & B handles (blue) are in closed position (as
shown below)
3. Connect the filling loop to the Domestic Hot Water (DHW) inlet and
tighten. Also ensure that the other end of filling loop is hand tight.

handle (blue) B to the horizontal position.
6. Wait for the pressure gauge to reach 1 to 1.5 bar.
7. Once pressure is reached turn valves A & B back to the
closed position.
8. Disconnect the filling loop, replace cap and plug. Note there
can be some water spillage at this point.

CONDENSATE DRAIN
This appliance is fitted with a siphonic condensate trap system
that reduces the risk of the appliance condensate from freezing.
However should the condensate pipe to this appliance freeze,
please follow these instructions:
a. If you do not feel competent to carry out the defrosting
instructions below please call your local Gas Safe Registered
installer for assistance.
5.
GENERAL INFORMATION
BOILER PUMP
The boiler pump will operate briefly as a self-check once every 24
hours, regardless of system demand.
MINIMUM CLEARANCES
b. If you do feel competent to carry out the following instructions
please do so with care when handling hot utensils. Do not attempt
to thaw pipework above ground level.
Clearance of 165mm above, 100mm below, 2.5mm at the sides
and 450mm at the front of the boiler casing must be allowed for
servicing.
If this appliance develops a blockage in its condensate pipe, its
condensate will build up to a point where it will make a gurgling
noise prior to locking out an “L 2” fault code. If the appliance is
restarted it will make a gurgling noise prior to it locking out on a
failed ignition “L 2” code.
Bottom Clearance
To unblock a frozen condensate pipe;
Bottom clearance after installation can be reduced to 5mm.
This must be obtained with an easily removable panel, to enable
the system pressure gauge to be visible and to provide the 100mm
clearance required for servicing.
1. Follow the routing of the plastic pipe from its exit point on the
appliance, through its route to its termination point.
Locate the frozen blockage. It is likely that the pipe is frozen at
the most exposed point external to the building or where there
is some obstruction to flow. This could be at the open end of
the pipe, at a bend or elbow, or where there is a dip in the pipe
in which condensate can collect. The location of the blockage
should be identified as closely as possible before taking further
action.
2. Apply a hot water bottle, microwaveable heat pack or a warm
damp cloth to the frozen blockage area. Several applications
may have to be made before it fully defrosts. Warm water can
also be poured onto the pipe from a watering can or similar.
DO NOT use boiling water.
3. Caution when using warm water as this may freeze and cause
other localised hazards.
4. Once the blockage is removed and the condensate can flow freely,
restart the appliance. (Refer to “To Light the boiler”)
5. If the appliance fails to ignite, call your Gas Safe Registered
engineer.
Preventative solutions
During cold weather, set the central heating temperature knob
(B) to maximum (must return to original setting once cold spell is
over).
Place the heating on continuous and turn the room thermostat
down to 15ºC overnight or when unoccupied. (Return to normal
after cold spell).
EXPANSION
NOTE. If a water meter is fitted into the incoming water mains
there may be a requirement for a domestic hot water expansion
vessel Kit. Contact a Gas Safe Registered Engineer or in IE a
Registered Gas Installer (RGII).
ESCAPE OF GAS
Should a gas leak or fault be suspected contact the National Gas
Emergency Service without delay. Telephone 0800 111 999.
Ensure that;
- All naked flames are extinguished
- Do not operate electrical switches
- Open all windows and doors
CLEANING
For normal cleaning simply dust with a dry cloth. To remove stubborn
marks and stains, wipe with a damp cloth and finish off with a dry
cloth. DO NOT use abrasive cleaning materials.
MAINTENANCE
The appliance should be serviced at least once a year by a Gas
Safe Registered Engineer or in IE a Registered Gas Installer
(RGII).
