Hi everyone,
The central heating in my house is not working bcos of faulty programmer potterton ep2002. I have tried to find like for like replacement but it is out of stock everywhere, perhaps manufacturers stoppped the production of EP series as they are out of stock since january. Can anybody help me if there is any other programmer to replace with without changing any wiring arrangements. Thanks in advance.

Don't replace it with another ep, they are pants, get a Honeywell, Drayton or Danfoss.

Wiring is really simple for anyone who is au fait with working on 230V.
Probably best to start with getting the correct diagram for the system you have, and check that all is wired up as should be.
Between the wiring diagram e.g. s-plan and the diagram that comes with the timer, it's a piece of urine.

Forgot to mention: make sure you get an independent model; this day and age there is no reason for running dhw and ch at the same time, unless you have a small cylinder and extreme dhw usage.

I did not realise ep's were not available (never used them because of poor reliability)
Any programmer replacement will require a rewire as the backplate is unique
and they were often used as a wiring centre.

Flip it off the wall and check the wiring to see if its been used as a wiring centre. If its only been run in with the programmer wires should be very straight forward to rewire and replacement. I use Danfoss 715, but honeywell and drayton are also good.

He's right. Who's buying all these $hite programmers? Just put an EP6002 on the existing backplate. No wiring changes, and you can have seperately timed HW and CH.

Or, EP2002 available on Ebay

Long shot, and only 6 months late, but if you're still looking, the EP6002 is in stock at www.discountheating.co.uk - just got one delivered. Had the same problem as you in the summer trying to get hold of one, although my EP2002 still worked luckily.

I have an EP3002.

What were the symptons of your faulty CH. Everytime the heating times on it fires constantly regardless of the wall room stat.

Does that sound familiar?

Thanks
