    I've moved into a house with a Worcester Heatslave 12/14 oil fired boiler. I can't for the life of me work out how to correct the clock which is working but about three hours too fast, nor how to program it to come on twice daily. I'm not getting much help from the manual I've downloaded. I can scroll through the different settings, like off, on, once and twice, but no more than that.

    Any advice please? Don't get too technical on me. This female brain doesn't work like that!!
    Thank you.

    Hello Gwenllian and welcome to the forum

    I don't think I've seen a Worcester Heatslave with a built in programmer, they are normally a separate unit which could be from one of many manufacturers. If so, please provide details of the programmer and / or a photograph.

    You have also duplicated this post in the Appliances forum. This can cause much confusion with two separate threads running about the same thing. It is also against the forum rules, but not an uncommon common mistake of a first time poster.

    Ooops! That wasn't intentional. Not sure how I managed it.
    I wonder if you can see this. Photo from ebay. It's identical.

    Don't know if this helps. I'm not at home atm to take a picture.

    Thanks. It looks like a Drayton ACL. Yours may have been re-badged for Worcester, so it might look slightly different, but the buttons are the same. You can download the instructions here, There's even a Quick Guide that's not "too technical" and takes you through the programming step by step.

    The forum has been updated recently and it has new features, so it may have automatically made the other post. They seem to be linked to each other anyway so won't cause a problem.

    Download the instructions from the Worcester-Bosch website. Follow the links for discontinued boilers, they're all still there.

    Left section of clock is Hot water, right central heating.
    Unlock with small screwdriver, press select to scroll through settings, adjustment to settings is made by - & +
    after adjustment has been made press Yes again, then go back to settings for other programmes when finished lock once again or programmes will be lost .
    The wording of the Programmes are very small, hope you have good eyesight !
