Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
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!
