  • How do I reset to remove my service message?

    On the older range of Ideal boilers, you can reset your boiler to remove the service message by holding the mode dial in the reset position for 3 seconds.

    For the newer range of Ideal boilers, such as Logic+ and Vogue, this can be done by either pushing the reset button underneath the display, or going into the menu settings on the display.

  • What does pre heat mean?

    ‘Pre-heat’ is a function that is designed to provide you with instant hot water when required. It works by infrequently heating the plate heat exchanger so that when hot water is requested it is already heated. This feature is not compulsory however, if not selected can take a few minutes before the hot water is at the appropriate temperature.

  • How do I change the batteries in my Ideal Touch control and reconnect it to the boiler?

    Please see below for a step-by-step guide on how to change the batteries in your Ideal Touch Connect, before reconnecting it to your boiler:

    • Switch off the power to your boiler

    • Unclip the thermostat from its cradle or stand by sliding the Touch Connect thermostat upwards

    • Use a flat bladed screwdriver to pop off the rear cover and take out the batteries

    • Place 3 new batteries into the back of the Touch Connect

    • Turn the power to your boiler back on

    • As the power returns to your boiler insert the last battery into the back of the Touch Connect and replace the back cover

  • How do I re-set my boiler controls after changing the batteries?

    On the PRT3, the reset button is located on the transceiver unit at the front of the boiler and on the programmable room thermostat. These should be held in for 5 seconds with the unit left next to the boiler for 15 minutes to pair. On the Touch programmer, this should happen automatically but can also take up to 15 minutes.
