Hi experts! I've moved into a new Flat but there wasn't a manual left for the immersion heater timer. At the moment I'm leaving it on all the time which no doubt will start to cost more money than...

Mikey Mike, I think I may have found a link that you can find the Owners Manual you're looking for. You'll need to pick one that looks like yours (since you don't have a model #), click on it and after it takes you to another page, browser back and look at the top right corner and you'll see a highlighted technical link. Click on it and it will take you to the Owners Manual for that particular model.

By the way, your timer is manufactured under the name TRAC Immersion timer.

I hope this helps, because finding things in the UK ain't easy, for this good ol' boy from the US. If does, please leave me a good rating. Thanks!

I would switch to a two wire heating only stat It sounds to me like they have the boiler wired into cooling side. Do you also have to set switch on your t-stat to cooling or leave it on heating. Just curious. I would still go with two wire stat. Thanks.

Hi the cylinderstat controls the hot water only not the heating the boiler stat controls the water temp the room theromstat controls the rads , if you have one ,

so boiler stat set on 180f or number 5 cylindersat set on 140f to 120f roomstat to your comfort , the boiler stat works as a over heat so if the cylinder stat or roomsat fail it will turn off on the boiler you should beable to check wiring from that .

Solid fuel stove linked to oilsystem with two zone

Put a temperature operated control (aquastat) on the piping of the wood stove so that if it is on, it will interupt the circuit wired to the oil burner at the X&X terminals of the boiler control.As the wood stove cools off, it will close the connection allowing the oil system to fire.

Need to wire a honeywell RTH7400D thermostat to 3 wire hot water

Just mark the old wires on the old thermnostat...R , W etc...and put them on the same terminals on the new 1.....also there should be some adjustment ire : switch on the back or under the cover to adjust for Hot water heating or electric heat...either is the setting you should have it on....also you shouldn't setback the thermostat at night or when away very much....2 degrees is fine , as the boiler will run along time to raise the temperature in the morning and may not get there by the set time
