I have a glow work 30cxi combi boiler and the timer unit has stopped working.
Its, what I would describe as,old fashioned looking and fundamentally a crude clock with lots of little switches

There are positions on this...on, off and timer
If I switch to timer and 'programme' it to come on at a certain time, it does not.
The timer doesn't appear to 'keep time'

Is it simple enough to change / replace it?

Ideally I'd like a wireless thermostat.

Probably is easy since its only a control function, but why do you want a wireless stat? They are expensive and over rated for what they are.

Mainly because I currently have no stat, and so have no woring available. I'd just assumed that woring one would involve digging into walls etc.
A wireless isn't the be all and end all. In fact, in truth a room thermostat isn't even all that necessary.

I'm primarily after the ability to have more control, i.e. timer, not purely just on and off!

You are supposed to have a room stat, its a building reg believe it or not, I think it comes under building reg part L (It says about an interlock device........which a room stat complies to)

But moving on, a wireless stat still has to have a cable to its receiver (so its not totally wireless) and then you have to set it up, and then the batteries fail when you don't want them to, and they are not cheap, where as a wired stat costs less than £20 Click here and doesn't have those problems. But its your choice.
