Question about Aube Technologies Aube 7-Day 40-500w Light Switch Timer

Open Question

We have had underfloor heating installed controlled by an aube TH132 A/F/AF control module. On commissioning the heating the RCD in the consumer unit keeps tripping. The installer blames the RCD - but the RCD is otherwise stable, problem only occurs trying to start the heating. Could there be a problem with the control module or how it is connected?

http://www.uheat.co.uk/aube_th132_underfloor_heating_thermostat.htm

TH132 is a thermostat for under-floor heating
Go to the website above and download on-line copy of your manual
On-line manual let you read bigger print & lets you break down the steps easier

I am sure by the time this answer reaches you, the problem will be solved
This is true because manuals are frustrating, until you tell somebody it can't be figured out >> which gives you time to rest >> after which the manual makes sense.

BUT I am frequently wrong, and you may be at a standstill
A quick look at the manual.
You can also select which part of the manual is giving you a problem and then I will help you through that specific difficulty

Wiring: I guess the instructions at bottom of manual apply to your model
Your 240Volt hot wires from breaker box connect to terminals 1 & 5
Your two wires supplying power to heat connect to 2 & 4
Pilot wire to terminal 3
Floor sensor to 6 or 7 >> wire from sensor can connect to either pole
The TH132 has two sensors, 1 located inside the TH132, the other sensor located in floor

Set up:
The first part describes 10 buttons (right away you know this is complicated)
There is a brief description of both sensors
Step 1 shows how to configure the start and temp-display switches

Step 2 covers installation of module on base
I guess you hook up power at this point because the display is supposed to light up
This implies that the bottom part of manual should be located more towards the top, and the power-up directive seems to be missing. Bad manual.
Step 2 shows what the display looks like with first power-up

Step 3 tells how to set current time and day.

Step 4 adjust temp setpoints >> floor temp is pre-programmed to 82 degrees

Step 4 shows that you press-and-hold the sunshine or moon button to have it display
The sunshine button is the upper temp setting, the moon is the lower temp setting

Step 5 is operating mode > choose automatic for programming to operate

Step 6 is programming, which carries on with about 24 steps
If this is your problem area, let me know
Now the manual suggests you make a chart of your programs
Other programmable devices don't work when there is a conflict in programming

Wow I see the TH132 is 'equipped with a proportional adaptive controller..' that carries a two year warranty. I'm sure you'll rest easy knowing that.

Reply back with the specific trouble area, and we'll get it going for you.

I want to turn off my electric underfloor bathroom heating completely and don't know how.


There should be a fuse or breaker that would turn that off. It should be on one circuit by its self for the bathroom heating system. If its a breaker just flip the breaker switch.

The unit is not talking to the sensor. It is most likely the sensor.

Check that air vents are open to control, so the unit can read correct temperature.
Change temperature Display selector for F or C.
Make sure wires are connected to correct terminals to match your voltage.

I do not understand the manual that came with my TH132 control unit. Can some one guide me so that I can set the heating for different times for Mon-Fri and different times for the weekend?


Aube technologies has a page with thermostat manuals
http://www.aubetech.com/products/list.php?noLangue=2&noFamille=1&app=1

Thermostat page shows 3 models for your TH132 (toward bottom of page)
Click the model number and it opens a second page
The manuals for each product are conveniently located on that second page, toward the bottom, along with a description of your product.

In my opinion, Aube (Honeywell I think) website is way ahead of the curve for customer convenience
Most other electric device websites have manuals located on a different page than the product
A lot of sites, like Leviton, have no manuals at all. Lose the manual, and you have to call their customer service like in the 1980's
Aube must want your repeat business.

Our TH132-AF keeps going blank and shutting down just as the heating element bars are due to show up on the display


Robbo,

I've had the same problem and it's due to the unit breaking down due to a 'snubber' not being fitted to the contactor (across the coil). It's a small resistor/capacitor that smooths the switching load coming from the stat. Without it, the trickle feed coming from the stat makes the contactor's coil bounce and damages the stat. Tracking one down, however, is proving to be a problem, as no-one seems to have them in stock. I have found one now, though from elementshop.co.uk here:
