I am building a canopy. The flew pipe (Patterton Suprima boiler)

Customer Question

I am building a canopy. The flew pipe (Patterton Suprima boiler) comes just under the new roof and needs to be re-directed above the roof using the vertical flew pipe.
The vertical flew kit has been fitted and the boiler stopped working. It switches off itself.
After we removed the new vertical kit and fitted back the original short horizontal one, the boiler star working again.
Please let me know how I suppose to re-direct the flew pipe vertically if the boiler doesn’t “accept” the original vertical flew pipe?

Thanks a lot

This boiler can only normally flue 3 metres, every 90 degree bend reduces this by 1m.
Is this an official modification?
