    Have you had a power cut?

    This can affect timers on electronic ignition boilers

    The little pins that are set around the outside are the way to set the time your heating comes on You first need to set the clock by moving the dial so that the arrow points to the time it is when you do it Then move the little pins eg you want the heating to come on at 6.30am you move the whole set of pins that go from 6.30 -7.30 to the outside of the dial - they move if you just push them in that direction when the clock goes round and reaches the outside pins at 8.30 it will turn the heating on - you can leave your thermostat set at whatever you like as the heating will only come on as set by the timer you should also have a switch that says either timed/off/constant - you need to set it to timed but remember if you want to over ride the timed heating you will have to change your switch to constant Hope that makes sense!

    if you look on the timer were you pull the pins ither in or out depending weather or not you wanting it on or off there will be an arrow and round the edge it will be from 1 - 12 am and then 1- 12 pm what ever time it is now place the time to this arrow all the pins may ned to be in or out not sure which so you can turn it good luck

    have you set the time on the boiler properly. remember that you have just put the clocks forward. otherwise use the thermostat instead

    They can go wrong like anything else. Make and model would help you get a better answer.
