INTRODUCTION
The Vokera 12, 16, and 20e Mynutes are central heating
boilers, which – by design – incorporate electronic
ignition, circulating pump, expansion vessel, safety valve,
pressure gauge, and automatic by-pass.
They are produced as room sealed, category II2H3+
appliances, suitable for wall mounting applications only.
They are provided with a fan powered flue outlet with an
annular co-axial combustion air intake that can be rotated
– horizontally – through 360 degrees for various horizontal
or vertical applications.
The Mynute range can also be used with the Vokera twin
flue system.
These appliances are designed for use with sealed
systems only; consequently they are not intended for use
on open vented systems.
The provision of stored hot water is possible by the
addition of an indirect cylinder.
A range rating facility is incorporated in the appliance.

SECTION 1: DESIGN PRINCIPLES AND OPERATING SEQUENCE
1.1
PRINCIPLE COMPONENTS
A fully integrated electronic control board
featuring mode switch, temperature control,
electronic ignition and flame supervision, anticycle control, pump over-run, and appliance
fault indicator.
● Low water content copper heat exchanger.
● Integral pump
● Fan
● Expansion vessel
● Differential air pressure switch
● Water pressure switch
● Two-stage gas valve
● Pressure gauge
● Safety valve
●
1.2
MODE OF OPERATION
When there is a request for heat and/or hot water
via the programmer/time clock and/or any
external control, the pump and fan are started,
the fan proves the differential air pressure switch
which in-turn allows an ignition sequence to
begin.
Ignition is sensed by the electronic circuitry to
ensure flame stability at the burner. Once
successful ignition has been achieved, the
electronic circuitry allows full gas rate through
the appliance.
When the appliance reaches the desired
temperature the burner will shut down and the
boiler will perform a three-minute anti-cycle (timer
delay).
When the request for heat and/or hot water has
been satisfied the appliance pump will continue
to circulate for a period of 30 seconds to dissipate
any residual heat within the appliance.
1.3
2
SAFETY DEVICES
When the appliance is in use, safe operation is
ensured by:
● a water pressure switch that monitors system
water pressure and will de-activate the pump,
fan, and burner should the system water
pressure drop below the rated tolerance.
● a high limit thermostat that over-rides the
temperature control circuit to prevent or
interrupt the operation of the burner.
● a differential air pressure switch that checks
the operation of the fan and flue thereby
allowing safe operation of the burner.
● a safety valve which releases excess pressure
from the primary circuit.

SECTION 3: GENERAL REQUIREMENTS (UK)
3.6.1
PIPEWORK
It is recommended that copper tubing to BS 2871
Part 1 is used in conjunction with soldered capillary
joints. Where possible pipes should have a
gradient to ensure air is carried naturally to air
release points and that water flows naturally to
drain cocks. Except where providing useful heat,
pipes should be insulated to avoid heat loss and
in particular to avoid the possibility of freezing.
Particular attention should be paid to pipes passing
through ventilated areas such as under floors, loft
space, and void areas.
3.6.2
AUTOMATIC BY-PASS
The appliance has a built-in automatic by-pass,
consequently there is no requirement for an external
by-pass, however the design of the system should
be such that it prevents boiler § ‘cycling’.

make-up vessel or tank
auto air vent
DRAIN COCKS
These must be located in accessible positions to
facilitate draining of the appliance and all water
pipes connected to the appliance. The drain
cocks must be manufactured in accordance with
BS 2879.
AIR RELEASE POINTS
These must be positioned at the highest points in
the system where air is likely to be trapped. They
should be used to expel trapped air and allow
complete filling of the system.
EXPANSION VESSEL
The appliance has an integral expansion vessel
to accommodate the increased volume of water
when the system is heated. It can accept up to
6.0 litres of expansion from within the system,
generally this is sufficient, however if the system
has an unusually high water content, it may be
necessary to provide additional expansion
capacity (see 6.19).
LOW PRESSURE SEALED SYSTEM
An alternative method of filling the system would
be from an independent make-up vessel or tank
mounted in a position at least 1 metre above the
highest point in the system and at least 5 metres
above the boiler (see fig. 5A).
The cold feed from the make-up vessel or tank
must be fitted with an approved non-return valve
and stopcock for isolation purposes. The feed
pipe should be connected to the return pipe as
close to the boiler as possible.

indicative of a leak. Care should be taken during
the installation of the appliance to ensure all
aspects of the system are capable of withstanding
pressures up to at least 3 bar.
3.7
ELECTRICAL SUPPLY
The appliance is supplied for operation on 230V
@ 50Hz electrical supply; it must be protected
with a 3-amp fuse. The method of connection to
the mains electricity supply must allow for
complete isolation from the supply. The preferred
method is by using a double-pole switch with a
contact separation of at least 3mm. The switch
must only supply the appliance and its
corresponding controls, i.e. time clock, room
thermostat, etc. Alternatively an un-switched
shuttered socket with a fused 3-pin plug both
complying with BS 1363 is acceptable.
3.8
SHOWERS
If the appliance is intended for use with a shower,
the shower must be thermostatically controlled
and be suitable for use with a combination boiler.
3.9
MOUNTING ON A COMBUSTIBLE SURFACE
If the appliance is to be fitted on a wall of
combustible material, a sheet of fireproof material
must protect the wall.
3.10
TIMBER FRAMED BUILDINGS
If the appliance is to be fitted in a timber framed
building, it should be fitted in accordance with the
Institute of Gas Engineers publication (IGE/UP/
7) ‘Guide for Gas Installations in Timber Frame
Buildings’.
FILLING POINT
A method for initial filling of the system and replacing
water lost during servicing etc. must be provided.
This method of filling must comply with the current
Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations 1999
and Water Bylaws 2000 (Scotland). Fig. 5 shows a

fan-flued boiler, consequently it does not require
7
SECTION 3A: GENERAL REQUIREMENTS (EIRE)
a permanent air vent for combustion air supply.
When installed in a cupboard or compartment,
ventilation for cooling purposes is also not
required.
3A.6
WATER CIRCULATION
Specific recommendations are given in I.S. 813.
The following notes are for general guidance
only.
3A.6.1 PIPEWORK
It is recommended that copper tubing be used in
conjunction with soldered capillary joints.
Where possible pipes should have a gradient to
ensure air is carried naturally to air release points
and that water flows naturally to drain cocks.
Except where providing useful heat, pipes should
be insulated to avoid heat loss and in particular to
avoid the possibility of freezing. Particular attention
should be paid to pipes passing through ventilated
areas such as under floors, loft space, and void
areas.
The cold feed from the make-up vessel or tank
must be fitted with an approved non-return valve
and stopcock for isolation purposes. The feed
pipe should be connected to the return pipe as
close to the boiler as possible.
3A.6.8 FREQUENT FILLING
Frequent filling or venting of the system may be
indicative of a leak. Care should be taken during
the installation of the appliance to ensure all
aspects of the system are capable of withstanding
pressures up to at least 3 bar.
3A.7
ELECTRICAL SUPPLY
The appliance is supplied for operation on 230V
@ 50Hz electrical supply; it must be protected
with a 3-amp fuse. The method of connection to
the mains electricity supply must allow for
complete isolation from the supply. The preferred
method is by using a double-pole switch with a
contact separation of at least 3 mm. The switch
must only supply the appliance and its
corresponding controls, i.e. time clock, room
thermostat, etc.
3A.8
SHOWERS
If the appliance is intended for use with a shower,
the shower must be thermostatically controlled
and be suitable for use with a combination boiler.
3A.6.3 DRAIN COCKS
These must be located in accessible positions to
facilitate draining of the appliance and all water
pipes connected to the appliance.
3A.9
MOUNTING ON A COMBUSTIBLE SURFACE
If the appliance is to be fitted on a wall of
combustible material, a sheet of fireproof material
must protect the wall.
3A.6.4 AIR RELEASE POINTS
These must be positioned at the highest points in
the system where air is likely to be trapped. They
should be used to expel trapped air and allow
complete filling of the system.
3A.10 TIMBER FRAMED BUILDINGS
If the appliance is to be fitted in a timber framed
building, it should be fitted in accordance with I.S.
813 and local Building Regulations.
The Institute of Gas Engineers publication (IGE/
UP/7) ‘Guide for Gas Installations in Timber Frame
Buildings’ gives specific advice on this type of
installation.
3A.6.2 AUTOMATIC BY-PASS
The appliance has a built-in automatic by-pass,
consequently there is no requirement for an
external by-pass, however the design of the
system should be such that it prevents boiler
‘cycling’.
3A.6.5 EXPANSION VESSEL
The appliance has an integral expansion vessel
to accommodate the increased volume of water
when the system is heated. It can accept up to 6
litres of expansion from within the system,
generally this is sufficient, however if the system
has an unusually high water content, it may be
necessary to provide additional expansion
capacity (see section 6.19).
3A.6.6 FILLING POINT
A method for initial filling of the system and
replacing water lost during servicing etc. has
been provided. You should ensure this method of
filling complies with the local water authority
regulations.
3A.6.7 LOW PRESSURE SEALED SYSTEM
An alternative method of filling the system would
be from an independent make-up vessel or tank
mounted in a position at least 1 metre above the
highest point in the system and at least 5 metres
above the boiler (fig. 5a).
8
3A.11 INHIBITORS
Vokera recommend that a neutral inhibitor is
used to protect the heating system from the
effects of corrosion and/or electrolytic action.The
inhibitor must be administered in strict accordance
with the manufacturers* instructions.
*Fernox and Sentinel manufacture products that
have proved suitable for use with Vokera
appliances. Vokera Ltd. cannot comment on the
suitability of any other such product with our

SECTION 4: INSTALLATION
GUIDANCE NOTES ON TWIN FLUE INSTALLATION
● The flue must have a fall back of 1º back to the
appliance to allow any condensate that may
form in the flue system to drain via the
condensate drain. Consideration must also be
given to the fact that there is the possibility of a
small amount of condensate dripping from the
terminal.
● Ensure that the entire flue system is adequately
supported, use at least one bracket for each
extension.
● The entire flue system must be adequately
insulated to maintain heat within the flue system
thereby reducing the possibility of condensate
production.
● As the exhaust outlet pipe can reach very high
temperatures it must be protected to prevent
persons touching the hot surface.

INITIAL FILLING OF THE SYSTEM
Ensure both flow and return service valves are
open, remove appliance casing as described in
4.7.1, identify the automatic air release valve and
loosen the dust cap by turning the cap anticlockwise one full turn. IMPORTANT, THERE
ARE NO MANUAL AIR RELEASE VALVES
LOCATED ON THE APPLIANCE. Ensure all
manual air release valves located on the heating
system are closed. Using the method of filling as
described in fig. 5, slowly proceed to fill the
system. As water enters the system the pressure
gauge will begin to rise. Once the gauge has
reached 1 bar close the filling valve and begin
venting all manual air release valves, starting at
the lowest first. It may be necessary to go back
and top-up the pressure until the entire system
has been filled. Inspect the system for water
soundness, rectifying any leaks.
INITIAL FLUSHING
The whole of the heating system must be flushed
both cold and hot as detailed in 5.8. Open all
radiator or heating valves and the appliance flow
& return service valves. Drain the boiler and
system from the lowest points. Open the drain
valve full bore to remove any installation debris
from the boiler prior to lighting. Refill the boiler
and heating system as described in 5.3.
PRE-OPERATION CHECKS
Before attempting the initial lighting of the
appliance, the following checks must be carried
out:
● ensure all gas service valves from the meter to
the appliance are open and the supply pipe has
been properly purged;
● ensure the proper electrical checks have been
carried out, (see 7.7) particularly continuity,
polarity, and resistance to earth;
● ensure the 3 amp fuse – supplied with the
appliance – has been fitted;
● ensure the system has been filled, vented, and
the pressure set to 1 bar;
● ensure the flue system has been fitted properly
and in accordance with the instructions;
● ensure all appliance service valves are open.
5.6
INITIAL LIGHTING
Ensure the electrical supply to the appliance is
switched on. Switch the time clock or programmer
to an ‘on’ position and ensure all external controls
are also calling for heat. Turn the mode selector
switch to the ‘on’ position (fig. 1).
The appliance will now go through an ignition
sequence as described in 1.2. Should the
appliance fail to ignite, refer to 5.5 and/or section

SECTION 7: CHECKS, ADJUSTMENTS & FAULT FINDING
7.1
7.2
CHECKING APPLIANCE OPERATION
When carrying out any repairs or servicing to the
appliance, the relevant commissioning procedure
must be undertaken to ensure the continued safe
operation of the appliance. Particular attention
should be made to ensure gas soundness, water
soundness, and the electrical integrity of the
appliance.
APPLIANCE MODE OF OPERATION
When there is a request for heat and/or hot water
via the programmer/time clock and/or any external
control, the pump and fan are started.
NOTE
There must be sufficient system water pressure
(min. 0.5 bar) to ensure the water pressure switch
is activated. If there is insufficient system pressure
the pump and fan will be prevented from operating.
When the fan runs, it proves the differential air
pressure switch which in-turn allows an ignition
sequence to begin.
NOTE
The ignition sequence lasts approximately 5
seconds, during which the appliance will continue
to spark even if the burner has already lit.
If the spark/sensing electrode does not sense
ignition the appliance will then go to lockout.
Ignition is sensed by the electronic circuitry to
ensure flame stability at the burner. Once
successful ignition has been achieved, the
electronic circuitry allows full gas rate through the
appliance.
When the appliance reaches the desired
temperature the burner will shut down and the
boiler will perform a three-minute anti-cycle (timer
delay).
NOTE
The timer delay can be de-activated by the
insertion of a ‘jumper’ on the PCB or by isolating
the appliance from the electrical supply from 30
seconds.
When the request for heat and/or hot water has
been satisfied the appliance pump will continue
to circulate for a period of 30 seconds to dissipate
any residual heat within the appliance.
7.3
22
Light the boiler as described in 5.6 and compare
the reading on the manometer with the value
described in fig. 17a. If adjustment is required
remove the compensator tube from the gas valve
regulator.
Locate and remove the protective screwed cap
that covers the burner pressure adjusting screw.
Adjust the screw clockwise to increase the
pressure or anti-clockwise to reduce.
Once the pressure has been adjusted, isolate the
appliance from the electrical supply, replace the
protective screwed cap, refit the compensator
tube, remove the manometer, and tighten the
outlet test nipple.
CHECKING AND ADJUSTING BURNER PRESSURE (see fig. 17 & 17a)
Although the burner pressure is factory set, it is
necessary to check it during servicing or if the gas
valve has been removed.
Isolate the appliance from the electrical supply
and attach a suitable manometer to the gas valve
outlet test nipple.
IMPORTANT, A GAS SOUNDNESS CHECK
MUST BE CARRIED OUT.
7.4
COMBUSTION ANALYSIS TEST
A combustion analysis check can easily be
carried out on the appliance via the test points
located on the top of the appliance, however
you must check that the burner pressure is set
at maximum (see 7.3).

and attach a suitable manometer to the gas
valve outlet test nipple.
GAS SUPPLY
The gas supply must be connected to the
appliance by a competent LPG installer and must
be of sufficient size to supply the appliance at its
maximum output.
Light the boiler as described in 5.6 and compare the reading on the manometer with the
value described in 10.1 or fig. 25. If adjustment
is required remove the compensator tube from
the gas valve regulator.
An existing supply must be checked to ensure
that it is of adequate size to deal with the
maximum rated input of this and any other
appliances that it serves.
10.4
10.5
Locate and remove the protective screwed cap
that covers the burner pressure adjusting screw.
Adjust the screw clockwise to increase the
pressure or anti-clockwise to reduce.
GAS SUPPLY INSTALLATION
The entire installation including the meter must
be purged and checked for gas soundness.
Once the pressure has been adjusted, isolate
the appliance from the electrical supply, replace the protective screwed cap, refit the
compensator tube, remove the manometer,
and tighten the outlet test nipple.
BURNER PRESSURE
Although the burner pressure is factory set, it is
necessary to check it during commissioning,
servicing, or if the boiler has been converted.
Isolate the appliance from the electrical supply
IMPORTANT, A GAS SOUNDNESS CHECK
MUST BE CARRIED OUT.
