This Safety Alert (SA) has been published to provide guidance to Gas Safe Registered businesses/engineers about a product safety concern relating to seven Viessmann Vitodens 100 – W system boilers.
Gas Safe Register has been advised by the manufacturer of a risk resulting from a potential faulty seal in the gas valve affecting seven boilers known to be in the UK.
Viessmann Ltd has identified a very limited batch of Vitodens 100-W system boilers that may have a potential issue with the gas valve. Only seven boilers are affected. It has been identified that over time, there is a potential for the seal to deteriorate and for gas to leak through the gas valve. This is a supplier issue that has been contained, with the exception of a small number of boilers that have entered UK distribution channels and which Viessmann has been unable to trace. If the boilers have been installed, the installations will have taken place in 2016.
Only the following seven Viessmann Vitodens 100-W serial numbers are affected:
