Sorry, but i watched many times technicians take this cover off and it's just a flimsy piece of metal sealing nothing.When you lifted the case if, there would have been a rubber seal which seals the case to the room, which prevents the products of combustion entering the room, hence why it needs to be a gas safe registered engineer.

There's no gasket, washer, rubber or anything that could prevent a leak.
It's bare metal painted white.
If there's any seal it would be attached to the internal part of the boiler, but I never saw one.
Also, looking at this picture, there's nothing of that sort.

I stand corrected, however it must be as Rob said, a seal on the back of the cover case. There’s x2 side panels that appear to be foam insulated as well.

It's been like this from new.Ok, then I suspect you may have a failed room sealed appliance and advise you to stop using it.
I’m not confused, and I know Worcester wouldn’t send it out like that.I think you're confused with other kind of boilers.
Nope he's not at all .... most, if not all of the newer greenstar CDI's have a front case like that. The large black rubber sheet seal fits against the faces of the upper combustion square as seen in your picture(the square that has the EV/main HEX, etc in it). All the pipes/cables entering from below into that combustion space are sealed in by grommets and glands. That way that upper square space stays room sealed.I think you're confused with other kind of boilers.
Exactly, you introduced the misunderstanding as the thread and OP relate to a 30cdi, and didn’t quote what type you have. However if it’s a combi, it may still have a seal, if it’s the rsf model it may not have one.That's where the misunderstanding is: i'm talking about a 28i of 15 years of age, you're talking about a newer model.
Yup the older RSF's/junior's do have an inner combustion case.i'm talking about a 28i of 15 years of age
Would you please point out where i contradicted myself on the make and model of my boiler?He's contradicted himself at least three Times with his make of boiler. He's done the job himself and doesn't care if he's done something which is unsafe. After all it was only a few screws
