    We moved into this house five months ago, I was a qualified plumber and have fitted many heating systems, but cannot get this system to operate correctly. It is controlled by a promgrammable room stat, which is a VRT340F. I have spoken to Valiant and downloaded their instructions, it still does its own thing! Can anyone help please?

    I don't have customers, I am nearly seventy, and haven't been fit enough to work since I was 59! I am just putting my hand up, saying I am not able to work this out and asking for help.

    C'mon Bunnyman, long day? a 350F with a Turbomax???

    Sorry, it won't work OP.

    They are a nightmare to program and operate easily. I'd have it out and fit a Honeywell 921 or a 927. Plain English operation ;)

    Without wanting to sound ( too ) ageist, have you tried asking a much younger person to try to program it from the instructions?

    Some would even say find a 14 year old as they are thought to be able to operate any technology!

    Wasn't it a 14 y.o. who hacked into the Pentagon's computer?


    EDIT

    No it was a 15 y.o. !!!


    A 15-year-old computer hacker caused a 21-day shutdown of NASA computers that support the international space station, and invaded a Pentagon weapons computer system to intercept 3,300 e-mails, steal passwords and cruise around like an employee.

    The boy, known on the Internet as “c0mrade,” pleaded guilty today to juvenile delinquency in a sealed federal case.

    Six Months in Jail

    He became the first young hacker to be incarcerated for computer crimes, the Justice Department in Washington said in a summary.

    He will serve six months in a state detention facility.

    Tried that! Several people, including two young plumbers, have all been sure they could do it, to no avail. It can either be on all the time or off all the time!
