Viessmann Vitodens 100 WB1B-35 Burner Screws

Was wondering if anyone new exactly what size the four torx screws that hold the burner on are. I know the manual says they are Torx T-30 but not sure of the thread or length. Viessmann does not have a part number nor any further info. My local rep gave me a bag that he got at Blowe's but I don't have confidence in the quality (would really be a pisser to have them snap off). The screws he gave me are Metric M6-1.00 x 12 stainless steel Philips head bolts. He told me to try them, he believes they should work. I found some online with Torx T30 heads that are Marine Stainless A4-80 grade but would like to make sure I have the right size before I order them.

  • That's a tough one. Not even the parts catalog identifies them.

    Maybe @GGross can help.

    Are these the screws that are inside the unit, that attach the burner tube to the burner plate? or the screws that hold the burner door/plate to the heat exchanger?

    If it's the screws that attach the burner to the burner door here are some photos. they do come with a new burner tube assembly if you decide you need to make sure they are correct. Its kind of strange to need all 4 of these and not have one for reference though? mind sharing what happened?

    Why not just take one out and try the ones you have? That will tell you if you have the correct thread.

    Appreciate all the input. They are the screws that hold the burner door/plate to the heat exchanger. Every other year I do more than just check parameters on the exhaust (I call that a Level 1 Cleaning) for customers and actually pull it apart and clean the heat exchanger (Level 2 Cleaning). Over the years those Torx screw heads start to feel like they are wearing out. Want to change them before I have an issue. Now that I have some, I will check to see if they fit and order the stronger ones to actually install. Was just hoping someone had replaced these and knew the size so I can install the stronger ones the 1st time.

    We've done quite a few of the warranty heat exchanger replacements (model B2HB) and they provide replacement screws that we save and would be happy to send you some if you need them. I believe they are the same as on your WB1B. Just PM me your address.

    They often spall when removing or installing and we replace with Locktite Anti-Sieze on the threads.
