    I had the same problem with the boiler not starting up when the Thermostat said that i was sending the signal. It turnout to be a fault with the box with the flashing lights on and not the thermostat, according to the engineer its a common fault after a couple of years!

    I have a different problem now, the digits on the RC Plus thermostat screen are broken up so some bits are missing, it still works fine, but difficult to tell what the temp is... anyone had this and know how to fix it without having to replace it?

    The thermostat control does not seem to be stopping the heating. Even when I turn the temperature down it keeps heating. How do i stop it?

    What kind of system do you have?

    RC Plus with a wireless receiver box connected to a regular boiler?

    I highly recommend to anyone who posted their email addresses to quickly delete them, if you do not want to be swamped with SPAM or receive any other unwanted attention.

    It's clear that an advice to post an email address came from a plumber and not an IT pro.

    Hi

    found an error 'E7' on our BritishGas (Drayton) RCplus transmitter unit yesterday. No function possible with it and after changing batteries and resetting receiver decided to call in British Gas.

    They had never seen that before. Standard error code is 'E1'. Just in case you think I may have been mistaken the '7' was a '7' and not a 1!

    New transmitter unit fitted and all fine. Seems these can be fickle units.

    I wondered if it may have been the on board Li (watch/clock) battery playing up. The engineer said he may test the unit to track down the problem as he was technically minded to find out.

    If your offer still stands I'd appreciate if you could email them to iain.fergusson@ . We've got one of these things at work and no one can figure out how to program the auto now that the original instructions have gone walkabout. Tks.
    (Is it in fact the same as the Drayton unit and should I have been trying to locate the Drayton instruction manual?)
