I had these installed in my flat about eight years ago. Every year they charge later and later. They start now at 4am and continue until about 9.30am. This means I am not using the off peak electricity properly.
How do you change the timing?
Many thanks

You should have a timeswitch or teleswitch next to your electricity meter and consumer units / fuseboxes.

check the time on the switch against the actual time, if its out, get your supplier to check/change it.

seems it should be on between 00.30 and 07.30

THE TIME ON THE CONSUMER DIAL WHICH GOES ROUND SLOWLY DOES NOT CORRESPOND WITH THE ACTUAL TIME. THAT WAS A BRILLIANT IDEA OF YOURS. THANKS THANKS.

NOW, HERE'S THE NEXT PROBLEM. THE DIAL IS PROPERTY OF YEB BUT MY SUPPLIER IS DIFFERENT. WHO DO I GO TO TO CHANGE THE TIME?

THANK YOU AGAIN

YEB no longer exist, and havent existed for at least 15 years. This gives some idea of the last time it was looked at (if the sticked is intact!)

Contact the people who send your bill.

An electrician cannot do it. The clock is sealed and it is a capital offence to break the seals.
Scottish Power take your money, they should fix it. Try the phone first, if no resolution then write a formal letter. I have heard that a letter gets better priority.

PS. Please turn off the Caps lock on your keyboard. Typing in capitals is considered as SHOUTING, and is rude according to Internet etiquette.

Hmm Internet etiquette. Apparently it exists and is called Netiquette. Read all about it here http://www.livinginternet.com/i/ia_nq.htm

I had no idea about the shouting by using capitals. It's just that I find it easier to read being an aged old thing. So, sorry for any annoyance caused.

I phoned Scottish Power and they have organized a repair in the near future. To my amazement they aren't going to charge.

Once again a big thank you for all your help.

Tim

Use your browser magnification setting.

Example - default 100% at the top, 400% at the bottom:

Not charge you?

Sounds like they should actually be refunding you....
