    Default Help with setting my Boss Therm BPS242RF

    Hi, I have recently had a new boiler installed and they have fitted me with a Boss Therm BPS242RF. I have set the timer to come on and off twice a day. This bit is working fine but for some reason the boiler is turning it self on inbetween the times how do I stop this as I only want it coming on morning and night and not on and off all day.

    Thank you.

    Call back the installers and get them to sort it out for you.

    Boss BPS242 aka Siemens RDJ10. At first sight it seems a decent easy to set stat but in reality it is a nightmare for playing up. They constantly loose their signal showing battery low (they are fine). I can guarantee you will bin it soon.

    Anyway. Drop the daytime temperature to around 12º or lower and it will stay off.
