### Can you use a plug in timer to switch your storage heater on during the cheap rate electricity

Generally NO.
But...it Depends on amp rating of timer, wattage of water heater, and line voltage.
Look at label on side of heater for watts.
Electric water heater will work on any voltage.

Volts x amps = watts
Watts divided by volts = amps
Let's say outlet is 120Volts. Lets say water heater is rated 4500 watts.
4500 divided by 120 = 37 amps
There is NO plug-in timer rated for 37 amps.

Let's say water heater is rated 900 watts.
900 divided by 120 volts = 7.5 amps

Yes. The Intermatic HB113 timer will handle up to 8 amps.

2) 240 Volt outlet
Same calculations as above.

1900 watt element divided by 240 volts = 8 amp.
Yes, the Intermatic HB112 timer will safely handle that element.

### I just installed a Panasonic light/fan/heater to replace the old heat lamp in my bathroom. I installed lutron timer switches to control the vent and heater usng the preexistent wiring (15 A circuit). The...

you will need to determine what amps the timer switch is rated for, and what are the rated amps for the light/fan/heater. More then likely you will need to buy a new timer switch which is rated for the correct amps. Hope this helps Tim

### I want to add an under-counter auxiliary water heater to my 15A dishwasher circuit. I need to install some sort of relay to cut out the water heater when the dishwasher is being run, to avoid overloading...

If I understand correctly you have 15 amp breaker with 14gauge wire.
Total watt capacity of 15 amp breaker is recommended at 80% rated load = 12 amps

You want to connect two appliances to same 15 amp line.
1) You have 6 amp Dishwasher that draws 720 Watts
2) You have under the counter water heater with 1500 Watt element that draws 12.5 amps.
3) Combined load is 18.5 Amps and 2220 Watts, approximately
So you do not want dishwasher and water heater turned on at same time.
Makes good sense.

Solutions:
> Easiest thing would be to put water heater on ordinary wall switch located inside sink cabinet.
Back when garbage disposals first came out, garbage disposal switch was inside sink cabinet. You opened cabine door and flipped the switch.
> Next solution would be to put water heater on a timer located under the sink. There are different timers. In-wall timers and box-type

In-wall timer would need relay/contactor
A battery operated timer like the ST01C would not need to be reset after power outage
http://waterheatertimer.org/Programmable.html
Here are instruction pages for selecting and installing the relay/contactor.
http://waterheatertimer.org/H230A.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/Install.html

Box-type timer like T101 120Volt timer. This timer needs no relay/contactor.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-T104-Intermatic-timer.html#T101
Timer needs to be reset after power outage, but operates on ordinary 120V power, and is simple to install.

> There is no easy way to wire the dishwasher and water heater together so one is certain not to operate when other is turned on. There are likely electronic control panels for that project. But since you know the hours when dishwasher is likely to be ON, then set water heater timer to turn OFF during those hours. Water inside tank will stay hot for a couple hours, so there is no loss.

It sounds like you are a solid electrician.

### Skoda Octavia Ambiente 2004 1.9 tdi, automatic gear: Problem1: board alarm, Glow plug system remains on at starting and contiune to flush in running. Engine starts hardly second or third time. Problem2:...

problem one is the timer control for the heaters ,also check the heaters that they are working ,oil problem ? look under the rubber boot that goes over the oil switch ,pull it back and if oil under the cover renew the oil switch,these motors do suffer from heater light flashing on and i know people have spent megabucks trying to cure it ,its a fault with dash and printed circuits ,but the heaters are not coming on i know because i have driven one with the heater circuit light coming on and i had a extended light on a long wire and the heaters are not coming on ,ignore it just renew the faulty glow plugs,as for EGR valve just pull teh vacumn pipe off the ERG valve and leave disconnect ,more hassle than its worth changing it ,you could end up with a ECU computer .Still a nice reliable motor though and economical

### How do I program my Honeywell HZ-709 radiator heater

Is there a seperate control for the timer and temp? If so, turn the temp off first and then the timer.I think they need each other for safety.

### Honeywell HZ-705.....HELP!!!!

Should have oil in it. I don't think you can refill it. If it has leaked out, it's probably no good. Anyway, here are the instructions.

Press the *power button* once to start the heater on high power, continuous run. If left at this setting, the unit will run continuously on high power (1500 watts, 12.5 amps) and will not shut off until the unit is manually turned off.
Press the *power button* again, to change to low power, continuous run, (900 watts, 7.5 amps) and will not shut off until the unit is manually turned off.

Set temperature:

Press the temp/timer button until the temperature icon blinks. Use the up and down arrows to set the desired temperature.
The temperature icon will stop blinking and the current room temperature will reappear after the desired temperature is set.

The heater will turn off and on to achieve the desired temperature.

Set timer: (auto off)

Press the timer/timer button until the timer icon blinks. The hour display will appear. The auto off icon will also appear.
Use the up and down arrow buttons to set the heater operation time between 1 and 10 hours. This function will activate once the timer icon stops blinking. The heater will automatically turn off whn the times runs out.

Set timer: (auto on)

Press the temp/timer button until the timer icon blinks. The hour display will appear. The auto on icon will also appear.
Use the up and down arrow buttons to set the heater start time between 1 and 10 hours. This function will activate once the timer icon stops blinking.
The heater will automatically turn on when time expires.

Hope this helps!
