Experiencing problem with RDJ10RF stat. Stat in hall (coolest

Customer Question

Experiencing problem with RDJ10RF stat. Stat in hall (coolest area) when it gets to set temp the entire system shuts as expected. Unfortunately it takes at least 90 minutes before it shows lower temp and brings heat back on. Radiators are now cold as well as the rooms.
Have tried lowering flow, rad settings etc. system takes quite some time to regain room temperature.
I had boiler and some rads renewed some time ago and am not used to having a thermostat.
Hoping you can assist.

Contact with Siemens has strongly denied that their is anything wrong with their TS He has requested that I carry out a parallel thermometer record of temperature during today.
He is pointing out that modern houses are well insulated and the retention of heat will be a result. Will let you know my result.
