BOILER LOGBOOK
5.4
The logbook is included inside the Installation instructions. This
logbook should be completed by your installer to verify that
the correct installation and commissioning procedure was
followed.
Failure to complete the logbook may result in difficulties
should a problem arise with your appliance during the
guarantee period.
This logbook forms part of the industry’s Benchmark code of
practice for the installation, commissioning and servicing of
central heating systems.
All CORGI registered installers carry a CORGI identification card
and have a registration number. You can check your installer is
registered by telephoning 0870 4012300 or writing to:1 Elmwood

ROUTINE SERVICING
BOILER OVERHEAT PROTECTION
In the event of overheating, the boiler will shut down and the
digital display will show ‘1’. Allow the boiler to cool, then
briefly turn the CH control knob fully anti-clockwise to the
RESET/STANDBY position and then back to ‘ON’ within two
seconds.
If the fault persists, consult a CORGI Registered installer.
To ensure continued efficient operation of the appliance, it is
recommended that it is checked and serviced as necessary at
regular intervals. The frequency of servicing will depend upon
the particular installation conditions and usage but in general
once a year should be adequate. It is law that any service work
must be carried out by a competent person such as British Gas
or other CORGI Registered personnel.

The front panel should be cleaned with a damp cloth and mild
detergent. Do not use abrasive cleaners.
1.1
Like all condensing boilers this appliance will produce a plume
of condensation from the flue terminal. This is due to the high
efficiency and hence low flue gas temperature of the boiler. It
is normal and not a fault indication.
The boiler is fitted with a condensate trap.
The condensate drain point must not be modified or blocked
(see section 7.6 of the installation manual).

PLUMING FROM TERMINAL
For short or long periods
Switch the programmer and/or room thermostat switch to the
OFF position.
NOTE: The appliance is fitted with a frost protection device In
the event of very cold conditions. Providing there is mains
power supply to the appliance, the frost protection mode is
integral. 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.
The pump will automatically operate for 1 minute in every 24
hours to prevent sticking.
