Hi, l doubt this is still an issue for you and l'm certainly no electrician. But many timers seem to be packing in regularly, of all different brands.

I saw a forum post that directed me to this website: http://www.seered.co.uk/sunvic.htm

I have had a similar problem with a Drayton SM2 timer - it is basically roasting itself as l speak, and yes l got the red light problem too, light came on, but no heating on, funny smell too. Solved it by flicking the fuse switch on and off (the switch that controls the entire house's electricity). I think powercuts might have something to do with all of this, who knows? But according to the website above, plain shoddy components are the real problem, and yes, the manufacturing companies all seem to be aware of your problems already, however much they deny it when you phone them up and they are chomping away on a sarnie and dismissing your concerns. Make sure you point out if you still have the timer on warranty and get a new one free of charge, pronto.

And think twice before an electrician tells you it could be a fault with the entire house's wiring. No ... everyone but you and l seem to be aware that timers just break because of their shoddy manufacture. Of course yes it could be a wider problem with the house's wiring, or even the powercuts that l mentioned. Just keep an open mind and don't get ripped off by the manufacturers or the electrician, both vultures l tell thee!

Can I put my central heating on a different time from my water horstmann didam 425


It appears there are 4 trippers on the daily time dial that control all timing. 2 On and 2 OFF

On the right side are override switches for Hot water and Heating
You can only separate Hot water and Heater programming a little bit.
You can choose to have Hot water ON all day, or turn on-off once per day or turn on-off twice a day. Or OFF all day.
The Heater has the same options and the same on-off times as the Hot water.

Manual:

For fully separate programming, where Hot water and Heater can each be programmed differently, you would need a 2-channel controller like the Grasslin QE2

I turn on the power switch and the blower turns on and stays on. I can get the pilot light to stay on but the burners will not light even after I turn the RED gas valve to ON. There is no thermostat...


Hello Skyhalliday,

I understand that you are having a problem with you central heat/air. You do not have a thermostat installed and have the red and yellow crossed in order to make the unit run.

The wires you have crossed are not to the heat if they are to the common color code. Here is the color code for HVAC units:
Thermostat / Wire / what is controlled
W / White / Heat gas valve or heat elements
Rc(Rh) / Red / 24 volts transformer
G / Green / Fan
Y / Yellow / Air Conditioner Outside unit
C / Blue or Black / Common (energizes thermostats that do not have batteries)

You may not have the proper wires shorted in order to have the burners engage.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.com

Shut the furnace off for starters. Remove the old Thermostat. As you remove each wire write down what terminal it wen to.

Example:
Red wire usually goes to R-Power
Green Wire usually goes to G-Fan
White usually goes to W-Heat
Blue or Yellow usually goes to Y-Cool

Central air unit/ Lux500 thermostat


There is usually an overflow tray which has a shutoff valve when the tray is about to overflow water into your house. It is not located outside on your unit but inside where ever the condenser unit is. IF that tray is full of water, your unit will not turn on until it is emptied. Then you need to find out why the tray isn't draining...do you have a blocked drain pipe?

Temp display shows 444


If everything on your B1691N0GB oven seems to be working, i.e. all the lights are on and fan comes on in fan oven setting, but there is no heat from fan oven, conventional oven or grill, try turning your oven off at the mains, then turn on again. If the temperature display then shows 444, your oven is locked. To unlock, make sure the central control knob is in the "out" position, then press the fan oven and light buttons simultaneously for 10 seconds or so, until 333 appears on the display. Your oven is now unlocked.
