I bought a house that has a newish boiler installed a Procombi 85HE but I can't find a manual. My problem is getting the timer on it to work, no matter what I do it all come on just as soon as the thermostat comes on.

There is an on, off and auto switch on the timer and then the dial with the tabs you position to select on or off, except every combination of these and the switch have no effect on the boilers functioning

A MOD will move the post to the heating forum, where the heating guys hang around sometimes.

You are in the right place now, just got to sort the manual thing out.

I don't seem to have it, although I'm sure I did, but Razor will be along later, and should be able to answer the question.

Never heard of this. Stupid question, but is Procombi the manufacturer or just the model :?

I have a feeling razor or Tony knows them

I'm not sure, there is a badge on the boiler (logo) that say's Pro, if you google it there are loads of "leaflets" in pdf on the net but they only give the specs and essentially advertise the series, there are 3 types, this one is 25KW there are another 2 more powerful ones

Is there a GC number visible on a data plate or similar?

After googling it, I think it may be a Vokera Compact HE re-badged :?

I have the manual in pdf for this. Whats your e-mail address?

Could be anywhere, but may be inside the combustion chamber. If there is a front panel that can be lowered, look behind this in the boiler.

"Pro" is a brand name used by F&P Wholesale, which is part of the BSS Group, which has recently been taken over by Travis Perkins.

Pro products are just re-badged items, but I don't know which makes.

from what the manual says the timer can be bypassed in the event the boiler is in a hard to access location and is controlled from a separate timer. It looks like this is another bodge, with the boiler in a bedroom and no other timer fitted it should be operational, oh well something else to fix
