Off peak hot water not heating!!! :(


The Economy 7 can control different types heater. Some heaters do not have off-peak ... but you can solve problem..
Copy following link:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/QE7-INSTRUCTION.pdf
If timer is wired to two different elements, then the night rate element or off-peak element might be burned out. Test element with multimeter.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-test-water-heater-element.html
Also this timer is wired so either Off-peak is getting power or Boost is getting power, but not both at same time.
If heater has off-peak element, then there will be a wire connected to terminal 5, going to heating unit.
If there is no wire on terminal 5, then there is no off-peak element, or wiring has not been connected. However you can change the timer function by moving wire on terminal 4 to terminal 5. Then only the off-peak timer function will operate, and not the boost.
You can also fool the timer, by setting time clock differently. Instead of setting timer for current time, rotate the dial and fudge current time by 10-12 hours so water heater thinks it's time for boost, but the actual time is during off-peak hours.
If terminals 4 and 5 both have wires, then either the element is burned out, or the timer has malfunctioned. Again, you can fool the timer by setting current time differently, and solve problem.

Just bought a new home and have a reliance heater. Some times the water is luke warm and some time it is like a boiler pipe. what should I look for or test


sounds like you have the heater set on its highest setting and its tripping the thermal protector. If that trips the water inside has to cool way down before it resets itself. Try setting the temp lower.
One more thing this time of year the water comming into the home is a lot colder this time of year and that makes the heater work harder and takes longer to heat the water. 40 degree water takes longer to heat than 65 degree water in the summer. This also means that it dont take much water cool the water in the water heater faster to luke warn.
If this is new home with a new water hater you might think about going tankless,then you have endless hot water and save money at the same time.

Recently purchassed system from you plumber installed it and we asked specifically not to set it on child settings.....we have not had one HOT shower since. how do we go about resetting the hot water...


These Tankless water heaters attempt to heat water as it quickly travels through a short series of heated copper pipes. A high volume of water at an accelerated speed has little time to heat up as it passes through its heating source. You can turn up the temperature (which you undoubtably tried) and turn the water volume all the way down. These settings will produce the hottest temperature capable of the unit - given the entry temperature of your water source.
Most underground water enters at app 52 degrees - and becomes even colder due to ambient temperatures. Difficult to raise this temperature 60-70 degrees in a few seconds of heating.
I've routed a series of copper pipes adjesent to the home heating system in an attempt to pre-heat incomming water. It's only a few degrees warmer, but results a 20- 30 degree hotter delivery.
I have installed some top end units that simply delivers Hot water without compermise.

How do i set the heating/hot water timer on the LP112-24 acl controler ?


The instructions are available here: http://www.draytoncontrols.co.uk/Complete_LP_Installation_User_Instructions.aspx I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions. Set the central heating Press the YES button, and the display will ask 'SET CH PROG?'. Press YES and you'll see ON1, the start of your first central heating period. Adjust it in 1-minute steps using the - and + buttons. If the - and + buttons are held down, the time changes in 10-minute steps. Press SET?, and you'll see OFF1, the end of your first central heating period. Adjust this in the same way, press SET?, then repeat the procedure for ON2, OFF2, ON3 and OFF3. Set the hot water When you press SET? after setting OFF3 for the central heating, the display will ask 'SET HW PROG?'. Press YES, then set your times in the same way. Remember, in this mode you can have different times to your central heating if you wish. When you press SET? after setting OFF3 for the hot water, the programmer will return to normal operation.

Need a manual for drayton tempus 3 heating control


I've ended up with a Drayton Tempus 3 when I bought my house, and I think this is how it works. It allows you to set 2 Timers (I'll call them timer 1 and timer 2) so that you can control Hot Water or Heating On/Off times twice a day. The unit has 6 buttons - 2 for Adjustment, 2 for Hot Water and 2 for Heating. The 2 Adjustment buttons allow you adjust the Clock Time, or allow you to adjust Timer 1 and/or Timer 2. NOTE: Timer 1 is the time refered to on the Heating / Hot Water Select buttons if you press "Once". If you select "Twice" on these the both Timer 1 and Timer 2 are taken into account. For example if you want Hot Water to come on Once between 8pm -10pm, but you want Heating to come on Twice between 6am - 7am, and 8pm -10pm, you have to do the following: Set Timer 1 to 8pm - 10pm, and set Timer 2 to 6am -7pm. Then select Once for Hot Water, and select Twice for Heating. Hope this helps.

Running time of dishwasher


he cycles times are too long If your dishwasher's cycle times are too long, check these:

Water pre-heating
Cycle not completing
Water pre-heating Your dishwasher may pre-heat the water. If so, and if the water entering the dishwasher is cool, the heater may take up to half an hour to heat the water. 

To avoid the wait, increase the incoming water temperature before turning on the dishwasher. Do that by running the kitchen sink faucet until the water runs hot. Or increase the temperature of the hot water to the entire house at the hot water heater.

Warning! To lessen the risk of scalding, don't set the hot water heater temperature higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Cycle not completing See "The cycle doesn't complete" section. 

The cycle doesn't complete If the cycle doesn't complete, check these:

Water-heating cycle
Timer
Water-heating cycle Many dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What happens next, depends, as follows:

  • On some units, the pause is timed and the unit continues after the allotted time.


  • On others, the cycle can't continue until the water reaches the higher temperature. If you have this type of dishwasher and the water isn't being heated (say, because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. When you repair the heating-system problem, the "cycle problem" is fixed too.


Timer Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault. Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it.

Hi my hoover 6612 dishwasher does its pre-wash but then when the light for wash comes on it does nothing. I wondered if it might be a capacitor which needed replacing but I can't find one - any ideas??


Check the float switch inside the tub, it should move freely up and down.

Check the harness to the motor

Check start capacitor on the left side of the wash motor
