    Hi, I\\\'ve got a Ravenheat rsf820/20 combi boiler. The timer keeps loosing it\\\'s information i.e all the programed on off times are gone and the clock time is wrong. Someone recomended replacing the clock.

    Any ideas, I don\\\'t want to spend £40 replacing the clock and have the same problem.

    I've had a look at the back panal and there is no place for a battery, the system is wired to the mains. Can an earthing fault cause it to clear? I often hear the boiler making a loud clicking noise, is that normal?

    Cheers

    i never said you could see the battery its probably inside, (did you know the computer you are reading this on has a small internal battery?)

    If you can not see it, do not feel confident than its time for a new programmer, to make life easy get the same as you currently have
