Boiler operates in relay test mode.
DHW pump is not starting on a DHW call.
External heat demand is on but the boiler is not starting.
Fault "CE" is displayed, or coding address "2E" is set to "0".



No communication between the Power Pump Module and the boiler control through the KM-Bus plug 145.



Check the  145 plug  connection on the boiler control and in the Power Pump Module.

Re-check coding address "2E". If the value at address "2E" has not changed to "1", then turn power off to the boiler and Power Pump Module. Remove the 145 plug from the boiler control, and cut off the plug. Then reconnect the  blue wire  to  X3 terminal 6, and the  brown wire  to  X3 terminal 7. (This is another connection point for the KM-Bus.)

Turn the power back on for the boiler and Power Pump Module, and check coding address "2E" again – it should be set to "1". Now the boiler should be communicating with the Power Pump Module.
