Economy 7 heating system

Postby colinlott » Thu Dec 02, 2010 9:41 am

Hi guys, I need to pick your brains.

Firstly, I have a couple of heaters which are not getting hot. (economy 7) I wanted to check the electricity supply to the heaters but I can't seem to get the power to the heaters to come on outside of it's operating times.

I tried turning the timing clock by hand but that just seemed to turn on the water heater but not the room heaters. Is there a way to get power to the heaters during the day, don't really want to be working on them at 2:30 am :)

Secondly, the hot water heater seems to be coming on during the day.

Initially I assumed this was an issue with the timer but when I turn the timer by hand, the water is coming on and going off at the correct times, however during the day, even though the timer says the correct time, the water heater is still coming on automatically.

Any input would be greatly received, thanks guys :D
