    Without giving more info on your system and its other controls, don't expect too much response.

    As soon as you turn what on? CH?
    It will possibly be a gravity system and the programmer has not been set to 10 program.
    You cannot get CH on it's own (normally) with a gravity system.

    EMP2 is an antiquated clock on a likely antiquated system. Tamz description will be spot on.

    As soon as you put the power on ie from isolator switch hot water is always on and no heating no matter what the settings
    if it old may time to replace it then
    So what fits I'm fairly competent but plug and play is nicer lol
