The Vaillant ecoTEC plus and ecoTEC pro models are
compact, wall-mounted condensing appliances.
ecoTEC plus and pro combination boilers provides both
central heating and domestic hot water, with the domestic hot water supplied directly from the boiler. The boiler will operate automatically to provide domestic hot
water whenever a hot water tap is opened, and automatically adjusts to meet the demand for both central
heating and domestic hot water in the most economical
way.
ecoTEC system boilers provides central heating and
domestic hot water where a separate indirect hot water
cylinder is also incorporated to the system.

- Do not damage or remove seals on components. Only
authorised engineers or our customer service may
removed sealed components.
Danger
Risk of scalding.
The water coming out of the tap can be very
hot (ecoTEC combination boiler only).
Caution
Risk of damage.
Do not use sprays, solvents, chlorinated cleaning agents, paint, adhesives or similar substances in the vicinity of the appliance. These
substances can cause corrosion, including in
the flue system.
Installation and setting
Important:
The appliance must be installed and serviced by
a Competent Person as stated in the Gas Safety
(Installation and Use) Regulations 1998. In IE,
the installation must be in accordance with the
current edition of I.S.813 ‘Domestic Gas Installations’, the current Building Regulations and
reference should be made to the current ETCI
rules for electrical installation.
Caution
The appliance may only be operated with its
case properly and permanently closed.
Otherwise, in unfavourable conditions, material
damage or even injury or death can result.
Filling pressure of the heating system
Regularly check the filling pressure of the heating system (see 4.3.2).
Leaks (ecoTEC combination boiler only)
If there is a leak in the water pipes between the appliance and the taps, immediately turn off the cold water
service valve and have your engineer repair the leak.
Frost protection
Your boiler is equipped with a frost protection function:
If the heating water temperature drops below 5 °C when
the main switch is ON, then the boiler goes into operation and heats the boiler circuit to approx. 30 °C.
Note
It cannot be guaranteed that water will circulate throughout the entire heating system.
If the boiler is not operated for several hours during
very cold weather there is therefore the possibility of
the system freezing.
Please ensure that if you are absent during a period of
frost the central heating remains in operation and all
rooms are kept above freezing point.
It must be remembered, however, that the boiler will be
automatically switched off by the built in monitoring
devices if certain faults occur, e.g. interruption in the gas
or electricity supply or faults in the flue gas system. To
overcome this possibility you can drain both the central
heating system and boiler.
Note
Frost protection and monitoring devices can
only function when the main switch of the unit
is set to the “I” position and the boiler is connected to the electrical supply.

domestic hot water on demand).
After the boiler stops operating the pump will continue
to operate for a short period to fully disperse the heat
from the boiler.
Note
The boiler incorporates an anti-cycling economiser control to prevent energy wasteful ON
and OFF operation of the boiler for short periods when in the central heating mode. When
turning the room thermostat to a higher setting
there may therefore be a short delay before the
boiler operates.

4.8 Troubleshooting
In the unlikely event that a problem occurs with the operation of the ecoTEC boiler, the following points should
be checked:
Fig. 4.16 Status displays
The status displays provide information on the operating
status of the appliance.
• Press the “i” button (1) to activate the status displays.
The display (2) then shows the current status code, for
example “S. 4” for burner operation. The table below
explains the most important status codes.
In switching phases, for example on starting up again
after the flame was extinguished, the status message
“S.” briefly appears.
• Press the “i” button (1) again to switch the display
back to normal mode.
Boiler fails to operate:
– Is the gas supply turned on (see 4.3.1)?
– Is the water supply turned on (ecoTEC combination
boilers only, see 4.3.1)?
– Is there enough water in the heating system (see
4.3.2)?
– Is the electrical supply switched ON?
– Is the main ON/OFF control in the “ON” position
(switch position “I”, see 4.4)?
– Is there an ignition problem (see 4.8.2)?
Hot water operates but no central heating (ecoTEC
combination boilers only)
- Is the heating turned ON (see 4.6.1)?
- Are all external heating controls ON (see 4.6.3)?
Caution
Inappropriate modifications can cause damage.
If your boiler still does not operate then please
consult your installer or Vaillant Service
Solutions (0870 6060 777).

Fig. 4.17 Troubleshooting
If the burner fails to ignite after five attempts, the
device does not start up and switches to “Fault”. This is
indicated by the fault code “F.28” or “F.29” in the display. On ecoTEC plus appliances the display also shows
the flame symbol with a cross through it (1). On ecoTEC
pro appliances, the red LED (2) also lights up.
Automatic ignition can only take place after you manually reset the fault.
• To reset the fault, press the reset button (3) and hold
it down for one second.
Caution
If the boiler still shuts off after three attempts
of resetting, please consult your installer or
Vaillant Service Solutions.
Caution
The boiler frost protection and monitoring systems are only active when the main ON/OFF
control of the appliance is in the “I” position
and it is not disconnected from the main power
supply.
To ensure that these protection devices remain active,
switch your boiler on and off using the external controller.
Note
If the appliance is switched off for a long time
(for example when you are on holiday) you
should also turn off the gas supply, the cold
water service valve and the electrical supply.
Note
Do not turn the ecoTEC system boilers OFF if a
hot water cylinder is also incorporated in the
system unless there is no demand for domestic
hot water.
4.8.3 Flue problems
The appliances are fitted with a fan. If the fan does not
work properly, the appliance will switch itself off.
The display shows the symbols and and the fault
message “F.32”.
Note
If contacting Vaillant Service Solutions please
remember to quote the fault code, as this will
help to pinpoint the fault.

4 Operation
4.10 Frost protection
The frost protection feature only protects the boiler. Any
other parts of the system liable to frost damage should
be protected accordingly.
Caution
The frost protection and monitoring systems
are only active when the main ON/OFF control
of the appliance is in the “I” position and it is
not disconnected from the main power supply.
Frost protection function
The boiler has a frost protection function.
If the heating flow temperature falls below 5 °C with the
main ON/OFF control turned on, the appliance starts up
and heats the boiler to 30 °C.
Caution
Parts of the system may freeze.
The frost protection function cannot guarantee
that water flows through the entire heating system.
4.11
Maintenance and customer service
Inspection and maintenance
Permanent operational readiness, reliability and a long
