***** ***** : Do you have a problem with the boiler thermostat or the room thermostat?
***** ***** : Does your heating not turn off?
***** ***** : Or does your boiler not turn off?
***** ***** : Do you have the make and model?
JACUSTOMER-ni4atlau- :

ROOM THERMOSTAT WORKING FINE

JACUSTOMER-ni4atlau- :

HEATING COMES ON WHEN ROOM THERMOSTAT DOES NOT, THERE IS A LONG PUMP OVER-RUN.

JACUSTOMER-ni4atlau- :

GLOW WORM BETACOM 30C

***** ***** : Do you have a wireless room thermostat?
***** ***** : It could be a connect fault where it is not picking up the 'off' signal?
JACUSTOMER-ni4atlau- :

I have a SALUS "box", which when it should come on, a "flame" appears. When it goes off, it disappears. But when it goes off, the heating goes off, then comes back on, then off, then on, and so on, but the temp is too high for the thermostat to kick in. i.e. set at 20c, actual temp 22c, but still comes on with no "flame" in display.

***** ***** : When it is doing this is the receiver clicking?
JACUSTOMER-ni4atlau- :

no, just the pump and heating. no sound from the box.

JACUSTOMER-ni4atlau- :

I have also reset the box and changed the frequency in case its interference. Today I removed the batteries from the box and put the system on timer, am waiting for the back up battery to drain to check if the box is faulty.

***** ***** : ok let me know what happens, I can give you a wire around solution to give you control until you get iut swapped
***** ***** :

I hope you have resolved this issue now

***** ***** :

If not then let me know and we can get it working together
