Home Getting started

My Vaillant Ecotec Plus does not get activated with my newbought Tado V3+

First I connected my Tado on the wall with the 2 wires in + en -

Everything connected and paired with my Wifi.

I opened my Vaillant and did the connection with 'bus' and the configuration. But the heating isn't working. Then I tries on the 24V = RT connection and did the other configuration. But still nothing happens.

Yesterday, with my old thermostat on the wall everything worked perfect.

Can somebody help my out place. It's becoming really cold.


  • That's odd. I have the exact same heater and it worked at first try.

    I am using the bus connection directly through the wall (replaced the multimatic 700)

    Seems obvious but are you sure you got the + and - right on the thermostat end?
  • Hi, did you manage to get your thermostat working? I have an ecotec 835 and I’m having difficulties as well.
    However, where you only have one RT port, at the 24v side, I have an additional one on the 230v side. I’ve gone in at the 230v side but the heating just seems to stay on.
    I’ve seen people mention connecting the wires in the eBUS port but that’s not what the instructions from Tado say.
  • Do you not also not need to make a change in your boiler control configuration to switch it to "external" control. Thats what I had to do with my Alpha boiler.
  • Have a look at https://community.tado.com/en-gb/discussion/2883/installing-the-extension-kit-on-a-vaillant-ecotech-plus-831

    It looks like you have the boiler wired to 24v and not the eBus connection. You also need to program the thermostat connection as well. and the instructions are in the Dec post by 02_London as a pdf.

    Took me a while to sort but all ok now for 5 months.
