Anti-blocking is a function that works with pellets.

Explanation:

It serves to keep the heat in the furnace. When the boiler turns off, it reaches the set temperature every 20 minutes, if the temperature does not drop, the anti-blocking function will be activated for 5-10 seconds. The anti-blockage can be set freely according to the needs and power of the boiler. Normally it is 5 seconds.

What is the domestic hot water (DHW) priority?
Answer:

Domestic hot water priority is a function in the controller that first heats the domestic hot water tank, and then turns on the central heating.

Explanation:

Function normally used in places with very high domestic water consumption.

What operating modes does the PLATINUM controller have?
Answer:

The PLATINUM controller has three operating modes.

Explanation:

Summer – that is, heating only domestic hot water.
Manual – that is heating the central tap water and central heating. In the operating mode, the preset temperature must be set on the boiler and on the heating circuit.
Weather – that is, heating the central tap water and central heating. In this mode, it is the weather station that calculates the set temperature for the boiler and the heating circuit.

What activities does the microprocessor controller perform?
Answer:

It carries out:
– automatic ignition and extinguishing
– weather controls
– room control (room temperature)
– control of the central utility water pump
– clock control: circulation pump, additional pump, burner (boiler operation time)
– control by means of the LAMBDA PROBE

What is domestic hot water (DHW) disinfection?
Answer:

Domestic hot water disinfection is a function in the controller that heats the domestic hot water tank to a temperature of 70 ° C in order to disinfect it.

Explanation:

A function to kill the Lagionelia bacteria in the central tap water circuit. Normally it is rarely used. If the temperature in the tank is kept at 50 ° C, such bacteria will not breed. The probability of bacteria occurrence is when we keep the temperature in the tank low or when we rarely open the water taps.

What is a heat curve?
Answer:

The heating curve is a graph of external temperatures to the temperature of the central heating water. The heating curve is a calculated heating temperature in relation to the outdoor temperature.

Explanation:

The heating curve diagram is included in the controller manual.

How is the boiler protected against freezing?
Answer:

The boiler protects against freezing by the controller’s program, which prevents this from happening.

Explanation:

At a temperature below 8 ° C, the controller opens the mixing valve and turns on the central heating pump in order to prevent the water from freezing in the system. Additionally, all pipes particularly exposed to heat loss should be protected with additional insulation. Check that there are no broken windows, open windows, holes in the walls, etc. near the pipes.

Installation related question

Is a 4-way valve required?
Answer:

Yes, a 4-way valve is required.

Explanation:

A four-way valve is a device with many useful functions, including:
– protects the boiler against low-temperature corrosion
– mixing the feed water back in order to obtain a constant medium for the central heating circuit or underfloor heating
– enables smooth temperature control by means of an actuator
– valve assembly gives additional fuel savings
– above all, it protects our boiler against corrosion and extends the life of the boiler

What to do when we boil water in the boiler?
Answer:

Don’t panic. Usually, when we boil water in the boiler, nothing serious should happen. The reason for the boiler to boil is the lack of heat reception, open ash-pan door, placing easily flammable fuel, e.g. newspapers.

Explanation:

In such a case, the controller turns on all pumps above the temperature of 90 ° C, even if they are turned off, and opens the mixing valve to cool the boiler down.
If the door is open, close it. If it is an upper combustion boiler, you can open the top door in order to cool the boiler faster.
It is absolutely forbidden to allow cold water into the installation – it may cause the boiler to explode.

What is the minimum temperature of the boiler?
Answer:

The higher the better, but the minimum boiler temperature should not be lower than 60 ° C.

Explanation:

The boiler should be adjusted in such a way that at the boiler temperature of 60oC, the flue gases are approx. 140 ° C.
We will have the best boiler efficiency.
All combustion conditions will be maintained.
At such temperatures, the boiler will not freeze, it will not get wet due to the lack of flue gas condensation (dew point temperature).

Why is the central heating pump not working?
Answer:

DHW priority is enabled. Schedule is attached.

Explanation:

In order to eliminate the problem, turn off the DHW priority and set the schedule.

Is it allowed to admit water to the system while the boiler is in operation?
Answer:

It is forbidden to allow water to enter the system while the boiler is in operation.

Explanation:

Supplying water to the hot boiler may cause the boiler and installation to become unsealed.
When the boiler is very hot, it may lead to leakage or cracks.

What is the minimum return temperature?
Answer:

As a book, the minimum return temperature is 10 ° C less than the flow temperature.

Explanation:

In practice, it is practically impossible without the use of mixing valves or other methods of mixing the boiler.
It is advisable to install a four-way valve, with such an installation, the boiler operates on a short circuit at high temperature, and the installation at any set temperature.
The return protection at this temperature is maintained and it can be said that it is equal to the boiler flow temperature.

Why does the controller close the mixing valve?
Answer:

Too low return temperature, allow the boiler to slowly allow water into the central heating system, in the case of a long-term condition, place the return sensor closer to the mixing valve or change the minimum return temperature.

Problems with the central heating boiler

Why does unburned pellet fall into the ash pan?
Answer:

Unburned pellets fall into the ash pan because the pellet feed is set too high or the airflow is too high.

Explanation:

Reduce the feeding by 2-3% and observe, if necessary, repeat the operation.
Reduce airflow by 2-3% and repeat the operation, if necessary.

Why does unburnt eco-pea fall into the ash pan?

What can you smoke in boilers with a gutter feeder?
Answer:

Pellets can be used to burn in boilers with a gutter feeder.

Explanation:

Pellets with a granulation of Φ 6-8 mm

Why is the burner baking?
Answer:

Sintering on the burner is formed when the air supply is set too high.

Explanation:

Reduce the blower power.

Why is fuel combustion bad in boilers with an automatic feeder?
Answer:

Bad fuel combustion in boilers with an automatic feeder results from wrong selection of feeding times. The blower settings are wrong.

Explanation:

Adjust fuel delivery and / or blower (see settings table). Call the service.

In the retort burner, the fuel burns only from one side of the furnace?
Answer:

In the retort burner, the fuel burns only on one side of the furnace due to the dirty air chamber of the burner. There is no seal under the retort flange or the fan is dirty.

Explanation:

Clean the burner air chamber. Fit the packing cord. Clean the fan.

What is the cause of a split pin breaking?
Answer:

The reason for breaking the split pin is the fuel granulation inconsistent with the manufacturer’s recommendations, (a lot of stones in eco-pea coal or a lot of sawdust in the pellets), wet fuel, sinter on the burner.

Explanation:

Replace eco-pea coal.
Sift eco-pea coal, replace.
Replace the pellets.
Dry the fuel.
Clean the burner.

Why is the feeder engine running and not feeding fuel?
Answer:

The feeder engine is running, but it does not feed fuel because the split pin is broken or the feeder screw is worn.

Explanation:

Replace the split pin. Replace the feeder auger.

Why is the blower not working?
Answer:

The blower does not work because the plug may be unplugged. The boiler was overheated, the STB protection was activated.

Explanation:

Insert the plug from the blower into the socket. After the boiler has cooled down, press the STB button.

Why does the feeder motor get hot?
Answer:

The feeder motor heats up due to the used capacitor.

Explanation:

Replace the capacitor.

Why is the feeder not working and why is the engine humming?

The feeder does not work and the engine hums because it is probably blocked, but the pin has not been broken. The motor capacitor may also be worn out.

Explanation:

Open the cleanout window, remove the “foreign body”, eg a stone. Replace the motor capacitor.

What happens when the feeder temperature is exceeded?
Answer:

In order to avoid flashback, the controller activates the feeder in order to push the fuel out of the feeder pipe.

What is the maximum feeder temperature?
Answer:

The maximum feeder temperature is 80 ° C.

Why is there water leakage from convection channels?
Answer:

Fuel is burned too quickly due to:
– too large chimney cross-section
– too much air supply
– wrong driver settings

Explanation:

Close the throttle on the flue. Check the door tightness. Adjust the air supply. Adjust the controller or call the service.

Why is the boiler "sweating" during the first start-ups?
Answer:

During the first start-ups, the boiler “sweats” as condensation occurs.

Explanation:

Fire up the boiler to the temperature of about 80oC and keep it for at least 6 hours. When there is a need, we repeat this action.

How long will a full tank of fuel last?
Answer:

There is no definite answer to this question. It can be assumed that a full tank of fuel will last for 3-4 days.

Explanation:

The burning behavior of the boiler depends on:
– calorific value of fuel
– the degree of thermal insulation of the building
– type of installation: underfloor heating, radiators, boiler
– cleanliness in the boiler exchanger, ash content in the ash pan
– outside temperature
– house temperatures
– combustion quality

Why is smoke coming out of the boiler door?
Answer:

Smoke comes out of the boiler door due to lack of draft.

Explanation:

Wall tightly the entrance of the flue to the chimney. Check the chimney patency and its parameters, if they comply with the recommendations.
Seal the outlet of the stove to the chimney, preventing the intake of cold air. If the chimney cross-section is too small, an exhaust fan can be installed.

Why is there a grease in the boiler?
Answer:

There are a few cases where the boiler is greasy, e.g. wet fuel, bad combustion conditions, oversized boiler, low boiler temperature.

Explanation:

Seal the entrance to the chimney tightly.
In the first case, the moist fuel produces too low exhaust gas temperature and thus exhaust gas condensation. In this case, not only is the boiler greasy, but also the chimney.
In the latter case, most often there is simply not enough air in the combustion chamber. Just add some air and a flame, the gases will burn freely without precipitating carbon from the exhaust.
In the case of an oversized boiler, the temperature is obtained very quickly and therefore the boiler will be at standstill more often than not in operation. As a result, the gases in the flue gases will not burn out, i.e. the boiler will become greasy.
Too low boiler temperature is the worst error. If the boiler is incorrectly connected to the installation, it is the thermostat in the house, i.e. to reduce the temperature in the house, you need to lower the boiler temperature. In this case it is recommended to install mixing valves.

The burner does not ignite the fuel
Answer:

– no fuel – check the tank and the feeder for clogging
– too low starting dose – check the starting dose
– damaged igniter – check the heater
– damaged drive motor – check the motor thermal

Photosensor check
Reasons:

The photosensors in the burner should be cleaned periodically with a damp, soft cloth. To do this, disassemble the housing by loosening four mushroom head screws in REVO Mini – REVO Mini35 models, and three bolts in models from REVO 44 to REVO 150. Then remove the photosensor from the socket, clean it and reinstall it. After performing the above steps, reassemble the burner housing in reverse order.
Photosensor cleaning frequency: boiler rooms every 3 months
Measurement reading in the dark 0-5 units, in full light 100 units.

Damage to the feeder sensor - the alarm cannot be canceled
Reasons:

The most common cause of a defect is the destruction of the thermoprotection of the sensor, which in turn leads to overheating of the measuring element. If, despite the burner cooling down, the fault cannot be canceled, the measuring sensor must be replaced. In order to verify whether the sensor is definitely damaged, measure its resistance, which should be between 1-5 Ω. The resistance of a damaged sensor is about 100 kΩ.

Blower defective
Reasons:

– blockage of the blower blades – unscrew the blower cover screws and check whether they are not mechanically blocked
– check the voltage on the blower wires
– check the blower motor capacitor

The preset boiler temperature on the display is different than the programmed one.
Check:

– if the DHW tank is not being loaded at this time and the preset DHW temperature has been set above the preset boiler temperature, if so, then the difference in indications will disappear after heating the DHW tank or reduce the preset DHW temperature
– whether the time periods are turned on – turn off the time periods

Additional feeder does not work (module B)
Reasons:

Reasons:

The reason may be loading the HUW container with activated HUW priority. Wait until HUW is loaded or disable HUW priority.
The reason may be that the SUMMER function is active.
The reason may be activation of the return protection function (menu → service settings → boiler settings → return protection). If the return protection function is enabled – check that the boiler water return sensor is thermally insulated from the environment. Improve the thermal contact of the sensor with the pipe by applying thermal paste. Increase the preset boiler temperature in order to provide a power reserve for heating return water. Check if the hydraulic system is properly made, i.e. after closing the valve, the return temperature must rise above the value of the Min. Return temperature parameter.
The reason may be the ongoing calibration of the mixer valve, wait until the calibration is completed. Active calibration is marked with the word “CAL” in the INFORMATION menu.

Burner fires but does not go to first power
Reasons:

– too high starting dose – check the starting dose
– dirty or faulty photosensor – clean or replace photosensor,

– damage to the gear motor – replacement of the gear motor
– incorrectly selected feeder operation interval – the value should not exceed 20s. (service menu / burner interval)

The central heating pump is not working
Check:

– whether the boiler exceeded the temperature above the central heating pump activation temperature parameter – wait or reduce the value of this parameter
– whether the DHW priority that blocks the CH pump is enabled – disable the priority by setting the DHW pump operation mode to No priority
– whether the central heating pump is damaged or blocked

The fan is not working
Reasons:

Check if the safety temperature limiter STB input jumper is on terminals 1-2, (the jumper should be installed only if the temperature limiter is not connected).
If the boiler manufacturer has equipped the boiler with an STB temperature limiter with manual return to the starting position, it should be unlocked by unscrewing the cover and pressing the button according to the manufacturer’s documentation.
Check the fan and replace if necessary.

The fuel feeder does not work / does not feed
Reasons:

– check that the feeder wires are properly connected to the terminals
– if the STB temperature limiter is connected to terminals 1-2, check whether the circuit has not been cut off due to boiler overheating
– check whether the feeder motor is not damaged
– if you can hear the engine running and the fuel is not fed, check the feeder in accordance with the boiler manual

Temperature is not being measured correctly
Reasons:

– check if there is good thermal contact between the temperature sensor and the measured surface
– that the sensor cable does not run too close to the network cable
– whether the sensor is connected to the terminal
– if the sensor is not damaged – check it

The DHW pump works even if the DHW tank has already been filled
Reasons:

Set the parameter Extending HUW pump operation time = 0

What can you smoke in boilers with a gutter feeder?
Answer:

It is possible to burn in boilers with a gutter feeder with different fuels thanks to three modes of operation.

Explanation:
