Siemens heating thermostat & receiver not working properly

I've got a Siemens RCR10/433 Receiver & RDH10RF room thermostat. I've got hot water but they're not turning my heating on. I have changed the batteries in the thermostat. The lights on the wall receiver have gone out.

SOURCE: alpha boiler - wireless programmer failing

it sounds like the problem may be in the boiler and not the controller itself. Do you kno which is are the two wores that are the r-w for the thermostat take and purt them together and see if the boiler stays on or shuts off like it does with the thermostat. If it does then replace the reciever. If it doesn't then you have another problem. Good Luck

I have a Siemens "Radio" Room Stat - the receiver has switched itself off. How do I restart it. I have pressed the restart button and the reset - nothing happens except for red light flashing and then off. I do not have the instructions. Where might I get them?

SOURCE: woke up to no hot water changed out both heating

Water heater can test for power, but is only receiving 120V instead of 240V.
Test that upper thermostat is getting 240V across top two screws of thermostat.

Water heater is fully repairable.
Replace thermostats.
I usually replace both thermostats to save checking which thermostat is bad.

If problem continues, there is a very small possibility that one of the elements is shorted to ground.

Other notes:
Electricity to heater, and the circuit breaker are good.
TP valve is good. Water heater is not leaking and therefore not rusted out.

I have hot water but can't get heating to come on


you don't say what type of boiler you have, but as a guide...

Three port valve may not be operating.

Heating Pump may not be operating.

Room thermostat incorrectly set or not working.

Start with the room stat as it controls the valve and the pump..

More information about your system is needed to help you further..

Hi i have a wireless room thermostat i wish to fit to my potterton boiler can anyone advise me thanks


in general-
wireless thermo has 2 units - room thermo and furnace rcvr.
if thermo is battery powered no wires to connect - if not needs 24V connected - then why do they call it wireless?
rcvr connects to same 4 wires as current therm except at the furnace - 24v power and 2 control lines
I can't remember the color code except red/black is +24v/common
but I have found them messed up by "professional" installers so u need to verify before connecting or go by the terminal labeling.

Why when my siemens RDJ10RF room thermostat has the arrow asking for heat does my boiler not fire up so i don't get any heating.The water heats up ok though?


You have a triple aquastat that maintains a temperature level needed to provide hot water. but you are not getting the thermostat to operate the central heating. The thermostat is a switch that operates by temperature. if you have tried raising the thermostat and the system did nor kick in try jumping the thermostat terminals in the aquastat . if that works then the problem is either in the thermostat or the wiring to the thermostat. also with a electrical tester." while the thermostat is jumped" test the c1 and c2 terminals to see if power is going to the circulator. If not then you need a new aquastat. if you have power and the pump is not moving water replace it.

How do i get even heat thru out the house with a daka wood stove


http://www.hearth.com/talk/categories/main-hearth-forums.4/
You burn wood, and smoke goes up flueway.
You're not running chimney smoke through ductwork so you have a heat exchanger.
What kind of heat exchanger?
probably air since you're running through ductwork?
How much hot air or hot water is coming off heat exchanger?
How big of a space can be heated with that amount of heat?
Is the exchanger located in optimal location?

Considerations.
One room log cabin with fireplace will not stay very warm.
One room house with big wood burning stove in center, with hot flue pipe running across the room and exiting on far wall, will get warm-hot, but will cool off fast.
Why?
Because the BTU output of firewood is much less than electric, coal, oil, or gas.
Otherwise they would have made wood-burning steam locomotives. But the locomotive boiler cannot get hot enough with wood ... the boiler needs coal to produce enough BTUs to boil water fast enough to rotate the turbine and turn the wheels.

Maybe your wood stove output should be measured.
Don't forget a huge percentage of fire heat goes straight up flueway.

Whirlpool hot water heater puts out overly hot water


1) Make sure factory-supplied insulation and cover are reinstalled over thermostats, or cooler room temperature causes thermostat to under-approximate tank temperature, and this causes overly hot water.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Tank-with-insulation-2-600.jpg
2) Replace both thermostats.
Sticking thermostat can seem to act normally when tested, but when left alone it sticks, causing runaway overheating.

I have a gas Rheem hot water heater.....The flame appears to be on full blast, not just the pilot. I have run no hot water today, so we shouldn't be out of hot water. The water our of the hot faucet...


Sounds like you have cold water entering the hot pipe, or crossover.

(A) Put bucket under water heater overflow pipe, and stand back from scalding water. Gently open and close the TP relief valve on water heater. Check temperature of water to see if heater genuinely has hot water.
It could be the water heater has sediment build-up and is no longer able to heat the water, or the gas thermostat is bad.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Clean-sediment-out-of-water-heater.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-install-gas-water-heater.html

(B) If water heater has hot water, and hot is not getting to faucet, then you have a crossover problem somewhere.
1) This problem can be located at crossover point of a recirculation system, if re-circ check valve has failed.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-recirculation-system.html

2) Failure of a single handle faucet cartridge can cause crossover.
Read how to test for crossover:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Crossover-on-single-handled-faucet.pdf

3) Other causes for crossover are a failed check valve elsewhere in the plumbing system, for example on the pool equipment. Also a failed mixing valve which is usually installed on top of the water heater so that some areas of the house like laundry room receive very hot water, while the kids bathroom receives lower temperature water.

I have a rheem hot water tank when you turn on the hot water it comes out nice an hot but not even 30 secounds after that the water cools off and it stays as just warm water. I hear the gas kick in to heat...


Could be your thermostat but it might be your inlet dip tube. Your water heater has a plastic pipe that carries the cold water to the bottom of the tank. When you open your tap, it takes the hot water from the top of the tank, the cold goes to the bottem and gets heated. If this tube breaks, or comes loose, it will short circuit the cycle. The tank is hot but as soon as you start using water, cold water comes in at the top and mixes with your hot water, giving you just warm water. If you have room above your tank, you can remove the union on the cold side , screw out the pipe nipple, and look inside and see if there is a tube. If not you can buy one from home depot or lowes for just a few dollars. Also a water heater should be partially drained annually to remove any solids from the bottom, which will allow better heat transfer.If you find bits of plastic when you do, then you know where your dip tube went. Also if you've had a hot water faucet stop up and it looked like plastic there it is.
