After attempting to turn the heating back on after the summer I noticed the batteries had gone dead in thermostat (MT10RF mechanical thermostat) I've replaced the batteries and synced it back up with the boiler (Worcester Bosch Greenstar)

The boiler recognises the thermostat and turns on but it won't turn off or take any notice of the heating settings at all, it just stays on, even if I take the batteries out of the thermostat it just keeps running the heating. The only way to stop it is to turn the boiler off at the wall socket and back on again. As soon as I put the batteries back in the thermostat it kicks in again.

I'm guessing it's a faulty thermostat but thought I'd check with you guys before shelling out £175 on a new one, is there something I'm missing or a check I can do?

Thanks,

Ian

Hi, yes it's a combi, the water works fine it's just the heating. The boiler accepts the command for heating from the thermostat but just doesn't take any notice of the temp setting.

OK thanks for the additional info... Beyond my knowledge but the boiler engineers will have a better idea.

I can't remember, but is this the one that the receiver is plugged into the front of the boiler?

Try resetting the receiver/programmer back to factory install settings, should be in the instructions.

If that fails, do not but the Worcester set up as they are, as you have said, extortionate, get the Drayton badged one, it's exactly the same as the Worcester apart from the name, Drayton make them for Worcester.

Around £65 + VAT at Plumb Center

^ excellent advice British gas and Worcester use Drayton controllers with their name on them. You could also remove two wires for thermostat place link in boiler (check manual) and see if heating control on boiler switches heating off and on as required you can find and download boiler manual if you can't find yours

That's the one, the receiver plugs in to the front of the boiler then there's a wireless thermostat.

Looks like I need the Drayton LP20RF at £88.95 so that's a massive saving.

Thanks for the advice :salute:

Ian.
