Error Codes For Brivis | Braemar | Bonaire

  • Brivis Error codes

The following are the errors that customers can sort out safely. If this error occurs continually please contact professional.

Error codes 40,41, 42 & 43

These errors indicate an overheat condition has occurred. The heater’s fan will be forced to operate at maximum speed.


  • Check there are sufficient outlets open on the duct system.
  • Check that the floor or ceiling register and baffle are fully open and not restricting air movement.
  • Check the return air filter is sized correctly and is clean and that no obstructions have been placed in front of the return air intake.

Error code 46, 47 & 55

These errors indicate that the heater has failed to light within the defined time.


  • Check the gas supply is turned ON at the meter, and at the appliance gas cock.
  • Check if other gas appliances are operating such as Gas cookers and Hot Water Service.
  • Check the gas cylinders have gas, and the cylinder valve is open (LPG only).
  • Check that there is a gas supply to your home. Contact your gas provider to confirm this. There may be work in your area or a problem with the supply.
  • The heater may require a general service.

Error code 50

This error indicates the heater has locked out after 4 ignition attempts. This error can be reset by using the reset button to restart the heater, but the unit will probably lock out again if the condition has not been rectified.


  • Check the flue pipe for blockages.
  • Check the condensate piping for blockages (BrivisStarPro Max & SP6 Models only).

Any other Error Codes that appear on the screen could indicate the heater is not operating due to a malfunction or fault with the electronic control module. This error may be reset at the power supply. If the error continues to appear, contact the US.

BrivisStarPro Max, SP & BX5 Models Resetting

If something has interrupted the heater’s operation, the word ‘Reset’ could appear beside Key 4 while a message is scrolling across the top of the screen. Press Key 4 to restart the heater. If the heater does not resume normal operation or the error message re-appears, contact Brivis Service. If the heater is still operating but the Brivis Networker is showing an error message with the service symbol, try pushing the “Reset” key 4 to clear the fault. If any other message appears contact Brivis service. If reset is not visible next to key 4 press FN then Key 1. The error message will scroll across the top of the screen and Reset will appear on the screen adjacent to Key 4.

If the fault persists use the On/Off button to turn the Brivis Networker OFF and then wait for 2 minutes before turning the Brivis Networker back ON. This may reset the heater and restore it back to normal operation. If the fault still persists you can try turning OFF the power supply to the unit at the power point located adjacent to the heater. Leave this off for approximately 1 minute and then turn the power back ON. If normal operation still does not resume, call Brivis Service and inform them about the nature of your problem, the model, and the type of appliance.

If your Brivis networker display screen indicates normal operation like a solid flame symbol and rotating fan symbol, for more than 8 minutes without any actual operation of the heater (no fan or heat), then something minor may have interrupted the heater’s operation. Try turning the Brivis Networker OFF, then back ON as described above. If the fault persists, try turning OFF the heater and back ON as described above.

Locking the Brivis Networker

To prevent any unwanted alterations being made to the Heater’s settings, the Brivis Networker can be locked via a 4-digit PIN number. In the case of dual Brivis Networkers, if one is locked the other is also locked. If dual Brivis Networkers are installed, the user PIN numbers can only be set from the Master Brivis Networker. The Slave Brivis Networker can only lock and unlock the system and cannot access the PIN numbers.

Setting the Pin

  • Press the FUNCTION button, followed immediately by key 2. The screen will then display Enter Your PIN number to lock the system. Do not enter numbers at this stage please continue to the next step.
  • Push the MODE key once. The screen will now display “User PIN reset Enter master PIN”. Do not enter numbers at this stage, please continue to the next step.
  • Push the MODE key once again. The screen will now display the message User PIN number 1 alteration Enter current PIN. If this is the first time setting the PIN, the current PIN will be “1111”. If the PIN has been previously altered then enter your current PIN.
  • The screen will then display the message, “Enter the new PIN”. Enter your new 4-digit PIN number using a combination of Keys 1-5. The screen will now display, Repeat the entry of the new PIN.
  • Providing you re-enter the new PIN correctly, the screen will now display “Valid PIN – PIN altered”.
  • If an incorrect number is entered press the auto key to clear all digits, then re-enter your user PIN number.
  • To exit this area at any time, just push the ON/OFF key.


The Brivis Networker requires no batteries. If the Brivis Networker has no display, check your 240-volt power supply or thermostat cable. But if you have attached Digital Room Thermostat and low battery indicator flashes replace the batteries immediately.

Braemar Error Codes

Before you call for service you should reboot and try to reset your system. You should simply unplug the power supply, if you cannot locate the PowerPoint just shut down the whole power of your home for 5-10 minutes. If an error still occurs on the screen you can contact professional.

Bonaire Error Code

There are some conditions when a unit’s performance is compromised and actions are needed.


Blocked fresh air inlet or flue outlet the will go to lockout. If the fresh air inlet, the flue outlet is blocked or the combustion fan is not operating correctly the red LED on the controller may not light up. If this occurs, the unit will not commence the ignition sequence and will then lock out. The green LED will then flash the appropriate fault code.

When the restriction is removed then the unit can be reset.

Electric Power Loss

3-star units

The unit will restart automatically if the manual controller or thermostat is ON, once power is resumed.

4-star units

If a manual controller or thermostat is left switched ON, the unit will automatically lock out when power is resumed. The reset procedure must then be followed to restart the unit. Once power is resumed.

Gas interruption

A gas interruption will cause the unit to lock out. The Controller or thermostat must be reset after the gas supply is re-established.

Faults codes of 4-star unit

The Red LED indicates the combustion fan is operating correctly and the pressure switches have activated which then allows the ignition sequence to commence.

The Green LED will display the status of the heater controller. The LED flashes will be of different duration times & patterns to indicate controller status. LED patterns are divided into groups to aid the troubleshooting. The presence of a LONG pulse always indicates that the unit is in a lockout. The number of long pulses in an LED pattern indicates the category of the lockout and the number of the following short pulses in an LED pattern points to the actual cause of a lockout. Short pulses only indicate normal operation and non-lockout events or status.

Long pulse followed by short pulses

Lockouts are caused by external switches and sensors (thermistor, over temperature switch, pressure switch or flame sensor).

Lockouts are caused by the controller hardware or by ignition, main valve, or modulation valve.

Lockouts are caused by safe start faults or ground connection faults.

  • Check there is power and gas supplied to the heater.
  • Check thermostat set temperature is above room temperature.
  • Confirm thermistor is connected correctly and installed in the air discharge duct.

 (4-star models only)

  • Check that the power LED is lit on the controller. If it isn’t check the power is available at the GPO, check the circuit breaker, and check the fuses on an electrical panel within the unit.
  • If the heater will still not operate, the safety shutdown device within the heater may have locked the control. Reset the control.
  • If the heater still fails to operate correctly, contact service.
  • For Service Australia Wide see the contact details on the rear cover.
