    Question Another boiler question!

    I think ASN needs a plumbers section soon! lol

    Anyways, I have a Worcester Combi as pictured below, it's working fine, but the timer part is goosed, it's dropping 3hrs a day which is kind of annoying, unless I'm here everyday!

    Where's the best place to buy a replacement, and anyone has a how to on how to change it? I know it just pushes on, but I have no idea on how to get it off! Worst case is to call the engineer out and get him to replace it, and get raped at the same time.

    I don't know the model number unfortunately.

    I sure think we could do with a nice little diy section Joe, with a list of local tradesmen we could call upon for lifes annoying appliance breakdowns/faults. x

    Another boiler question!

    Get a service contract on it, and they won't notice the timer losing time during the 15 minute pre-contract inspection.

    Wait 2 weeks, then claim.

    It's commercial, so never bother with service contracts on it, as they usually won't cover you.

    Another boiler question!

    Our commercial boiler is covered by British Gas for a very reasonable sum.

    You make it sound easy, and I'm sure it is, but it's not something I'd really want to attempt with my limited skills. lol

    Just get a sparky in to do it then. A 30 min job for a sparks. Just disconnect the existing timer or reinsert the blanking plate if it was left with you... Or get another Worcester clock, just a digital version, don't think they are very expensive. They literally just plug in to the pcb

    The model no should be on the flap/panel you pull down.
    If you take the serial no and GC no you should be able to get one from any Plumbers merchants. ie HRP plumbcenter etc.

    Aha! And so there is, a poxy tiny label with the details on it!



    So now I have the model number, lets see if a digital timer is available, that would be ideal.

    Cheers.

    All sorted, just got a direct replacement, couldn't be arsed with digital, and found the instructions on how to replace on youtube.

    Annoying thing was, it worked perfectly overnight, bang on time when I arrived this arvo @3 lol. And when purchasing these things, the guy quote me £55+vat over the phone and they tried to charge me £73.50+vat when I arrived. Got them back down to the 55 quote after a moan thankfully.
