    Not 100% clear -turn to HW Off, CH On.

    Does red light (on new receiver) go out when you turn CH off

    Ah. I'm sorry -

    Remove the wire that you put into terminal 6 from NC
    and terminate safely.

    My mistake - this is for HW off - not CH off.


    In other words the first diagram I made was correct.
    I shall delete the other.

    I have modified this wiring diagram to correspond to your arrangement and numbering.

    Very good.

    Thanks for letting us know.

    You say you don't use the programmer for heating the water but there is no reason not to.

    :)

    Thank you that is handy to know if it will work in the future, I kept my Electric connection to the immersion.

    Its been my saviour as I cant rely afford gas, its a luxury for when my granddaughter stays over.

    So with the immersion option I can still have lovely hot baths.

    I have friends who have been lumbered with Combi boilers and they need both fuels and are in a terrible state financily.

    I saw it all coming so I stayed put with what I have, even if I "had to" have a Combi I would some how rig my water tank and still keep the option.

    It will not be leaving my house any time soon :)

    Thanks again
    Oddjob :)

    Mmmm. Gas is a lot cheaper than electric.
    You must have Economy 7 or similar.

    Yes, combis can be plumbed into the cylinder.

    Good luck.

    Not Economy 7 I just don't use any heating.
    All I need now is none standing charge meters as no gas use for 8 months a year I still have to top up.

    Just watching the market.

    Thanks again EdL till next time lol
