    Hi everyone

    My Salus RT300RF thermostat has stopped working because the batteries have leaked. The rest of the heating system and the receiver work fine, the only issue is I now can't turn the heating on because the thermostat is dead.

    1. I've found a second hand RT300RF thermostat - if I buy this can I just connect it to the existing receiver? If so, how easy is this / what do I do ?!

    2. Or does anyone know which other Salus thermostats are compatible with the RT300RF receiver? They don't seem to make the thermostat I have anymore so I'm not sure what other one would replace it

    3. OR will none of these options work and will I need someone to come out and look at it?

    Any help would be SO appreciated :)

    P.S. I know VERY LITTLE about any of this but am just trying to work out if it could be an easy fix and save me some money!

    Hi,

    Can you post a pic of the original thermostat, where the batteries have leaked?
    If the damage is only in the battery compartment, often the battery terminals can be cleaned up (scraped/filed and cleaned with white vinegar/lemon juice, or isopropyl alcohol).
    This could save a bit of money! :)

    Manual here
    https://salus-controls.com/files/RT300RF-Manual-005-cr.pdf

    Looks like they may all be set the same in the Factory.
    There is a note in the Manual that the connection between the Stat and Receiver can be changed if there is another Stat within receiving distance.
    i.e. If your Neighbour has the same Unit, their Stat can trigger your Receiver.
    Also looks like you can have multiple Stats in your House all talking to your Receiver.

    A used one should be OK
