    Fischer heater manual

    Yep - I had found the same thing. Totally with you. I called Fischer, and they stonewalled me on the grounds that they couldn't find any record of the customer's name or address in their records. This tells me that they restrict the information to their own installers. I told them that what...

    Fischer heater manual

    Well, it’s a bit more than a switch, because it can be programmed, and it has an RF transceiver. The main thing is that it has to be paired to the heater, so I need the instructions for that.

    Fischer heater manual

    Fischer 100/60 1900W I have a customer with one of the above. Does anyone here have access to the knowledge that Fischer apparently keeps secret, which is how to pair the appliance with its wireless thermostat?

    Boilermate 2 draining down

    Ezekiel, as has been advised earlier on this topic, fill the cylinder using a hosepipe into the vent pipe. In the longer term it will be better to create a new cold feed, using a new tee at the drain off point.

    Maxtor MSS-II NAS box thing

    Does anyone have an old one of these that they no longer want? I really want to replace the circuit board in mine as it's gone horribly wrong and I can't get at my data.

    Old damp proof holes in bricks

    You really don't need to do any wading, just read and digest the very first post on that topic, which makes this request: "Does anyone out there have any real-life examples of rising damp caused ONLY by a failed DPC in the wall? If so, please can you help me understand how it...

    Rising damp does not exist

    But you don't. Nor do you have any explanation for the rising damp you claimed that you saw.

    Rising damp does not exist

    Do you have any photos of just one property? A technical report? A postal address?

    Lunch

    I just had some lunch, and carelessly threw a dressing over some fish - I was fed up with my salmon always being responsibly sauced.

    Obsolete Crabtree 6000/610 CU busbar

    Thanks RF, for digging out that CU and posting the photo. I'm going to fabricate a new busbar - I think it will be better than brazing and not too much more effort. Thanks again :)

    New toy from ebay

    Because the cost of policing such activities would make the auction service prohibitively expensive. After all, this isn't something that can be done programatically, i.e. in software, by the eBay proprieter[s]. It's just an electronic auction - the same rules apply to eBay as do to a...

    Presumably your label would then say "EC Approved by RF Lighting". :wink:

    I have no idea why it's upside down, but it is. Sorry.

    Obsolete Crabtree 6000/610 CU busbar

    @333rocky333: Thanks - I will post a photo. @martinxxxxxx: Thanks - a new CU would be many £hundreds; a new busbar and RCBO will be merely £tens. The old busbar is still there, but this is a split load CU and the rejigging that's needed to fit in the RCBO is not possible without a longer...

    Obsolete Crabtree 6000/610 CU busbar

    Hello I hope you're all having a wonderful summer and are basking in the reflected glory of the 30th Olympiad; I know I am. I'm looking for a replacement busbar for a Crabtree CU - it's the old (pre-1992) Starbreaker 6000 product, with notches in the busbar and a screw clamp at the base of...

    Rising damp does not exist

    No. That was not an original points by Amphibian - it was one of my points from The Very Beginning. Of course damp can rise between rendering and/or plastering and the brickwork - this is one of the many things that can be cured by replacing blown render, and by stopping water from getting...

    Appoved adapters

    'Cos someone has used a travel adapter of such a type that presented live contacts to the metal faceplate of a socket outlet, with illuminating results :-D

    Appoved adapters

    Can anyone tell me whether/which standards are in force in the UK governing the use of a travel adapter in a BS 1363 socket outlet? For example, does a travel adapter have to be approved according to a European and/or British Standard? If so, and it if isn't approved, which law is broken...
