Error code F5 on a British Gas boiler model 330

Hi, I have read the answers on this site about other peoples problem with this error code but, I can not see any red reset button top left inside the boiler casing. The previous post were back in 2009 so I wonder if the layout of the boiler has changed since then. Does anyone one know if this is the case and where the reset button has gone?

This is an overheat error code.

Turn the power switch off on the front of the boiler, wait 5 seconds then turn it back on.

if it doesn't fix you need to find the cause of the overheat.
Thanks for that.

The reason was a drain down resulting in a lot of air in the system. I eventually tracked down the red reset button, it is hidden between the two push on connectors on the flow heat sensor. All now working ok apart from a lot of bubbles still in the pipes but hopefully the air separator will do its stuff.
