Hi guys, have a Worcester Heatslave 9.24 boiler. It has been playing up due to the timer getting stuck when it passes the programming clips (24 hour timer), so it stays on or wont go on etc. Taken it apart and it seems the switch itself is the problem as its stiff to turn on/off, hence the rotating timer does not have enough push power to turn it [on or off] etc. The timer is a Series 425 Tiara timer. I am gonna replace this timer. Does anyone know if there is a suitable digital timer i can replace it with? Or do i have to replace it with another series 425 timer? Does anyone know a good place to get said timers? Have looked on fleabay and there isn't much around in the way of these things. Thanks :L

You can change it for a digital timer, how many wires go to the original one? It will be either 2 or 3, any universal timer will replace it and will come with a wiring diagram, they are straight forward enough.
B & Q stock universal digital timers or go to a local heating supplies place and they will suggest a replacement and will usually even give you the number of a local fitter who will fit it for a few quid if you don't fancy it.

B & Q do do Universal Timers but it all depends on how the system was wired in in the first place. I got one from B&Q which was supposed to be a direct replacement according to them and when i got it home it wasn't gue to the wiring format of the house. Mine was a Potterton timer/Programmer so i just looked on the Internet for the latest version of what i had, bought that and it was a direct replacement.

Got it from http://www.heatingcontrolsonline.co.uk/ Worth contacting them as they are very good and i got it next day as well.

I take it yours is this one - http://www.heatingcontrolsonline.co.uk/product_info.php?products_id=55

If so it says you can use either of these using the same backplate and wiring -

Hope you get it sorted mate, you get one of the ones i mentioned and it is just a case of whipping the front off of you existing timer and putting the new one on. Will save you a big headache and a lot of Moolaar! :L
