1-800-GO-TO-UPM for technical support
UPM page for remote timers
UPM used to post manuals with their product, but they evidently stopped last month, thinking that offering less would promote their product better.

I have 2 manuals for UPM remote timers:

The manuals are 6 pages long and 5 pages long, making it impractical to write out all the steps without input from you.
If you review the manuals and say which one applies to your timer, and then add a comment with exactly what part of manual is confusing, and describe the buttons on your timer so I can tell which one you have, I will help further for free.

If above answer is not exact enough, or if you don't want to read the manual, then please take the simple step and pay for a fixya expert who will talk with you on the phone for a price and walk you through the steps.
Be sure to give the fixya paid expert links to manuals shown above so they will know what steps to tell you.

This line of timers has mostly disappeared from market... I do not know who is offering tech support for the product.
If you purchased the timer recently, it may be previously used or non-functioning.
The manual is complicated and incomplete ... probably because they have built-in or intuitive steps that display when you program the timer... or they assume you want to fiddle around with their product.
It appears the timer must be wired correctly prior to programming.

- you set the current time first... you toggle through menu choices using arrow keys... go to clock...press set.. toggle to find current day (today) and then press set button... then do the same for hour and minute... pressing set button to confirm each selection.
- to program... you toggle through menu choices using arrow keys... when 1 ON appears on display... press set... select day or days for program 1 on using arrow keys... press set... select hour and minute... and press set after each to confirm selection.
These steps confirm setting for program 1 ON ...the day hour and minute that program 1 turns ON
Each ON program requires OFF program..
Probably the timer automatically displays program 1 OFF as soon as program 1 ON is set... then you follow same steps to select day, hour and minute for program 1 off.
Repeat steps to set up to 20 programs.
Do not touch buttons for period of time, and the timer probably displays current time and is ready to go, but manual is unclear about setting the mode..

Connect the timer white wire to bare ground wire.
Open following link to read instructions:

Connecting white to ground is not 100% code, but it is not dangerous in this instance since the clock motor is less than 3 watts.
Or install battery-operated Intermatic ST01C timer that does not require Neutral wire:

It's important to make sure everything is okay with your boiler. That means that it turns on and works just fine when you want it to, and in the same way it should also turn off when it needs to be turned off.

Boilers not turning off might not be a problem in your home but there certainly are some homeowners who struggle with this issue. This issue needs to be fixed right away because boilers that won't turn off could increase the risk of overheating in your home. Not only that, but you'll also find yourself paying more since your boiler won't stop running.

You can check your boiler's thermostat and see if anything changes when you try to turn the temperature levels down. If nothing happens, you should contact an expert to check the thermostat. Hiring an expert offers many advantages. Your heating system professional will also look for other areas that could be causing the issue such as the valves, the programmer, and the intricate wiring inside the boiler. These areas require the skill of an expert that's why it's best to visit the website of I-Delta to get connected with a professional who will help you.
