This notice only applies to boilers with a vertical flue that exits from the top and were installed after December 2001.

Under certain abnormal electrical loads the above type of boiler may fail in an unsafe manner.

The risk of this happening is small and it is not necessary to turn the boiler off. However, it is strongly recommended that the control board is replaced as a precaution.

If you have this type of boiler and it has not recently been re-worked an appointment can be arranged for the modification to be carried out free of charge by calling free phone 0800 915 0221.

We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your co-operation.
