    Hi,
    I am replacing a Drayton Digistat SCR.
    How can I take it off the wall?
    I tried pulling the front of it away from the wall, but it does not come away easily and I am nervous about breaking it.
    Thanks,
    Amnon

    The Digistat and SCR are two different items. If you are wanting to change the batteries they are in the Digistat. The instructions can be found by clicking here.

    I didn't, but as no other information was provided and as a starting point that's the most common reason for removing the cover from a Digistat... I'm sure the OP will respond if it's something else.

    Thanks @ianmcd the 2 screws was exactly what I was missing!

    Thanks also @stem, but sadly my thermostat is beyond salvation from new batteries,
    so we decided to replace it.

    ...wrong assumption again :whistle:

    ps to @ianmcd I hadn't seen your post, you must have replied whilst I was finding the link to the Digistat / SCR instructions.
