Is the unit reading the correct ambient temperature?

The unit works by averaging temperatures so it doesnt just switch on and off its call for heat at pre-determined times, if left dos the thermostat continue to call for heat, so if it was set to 20 the room would eventually get to 30, or does it stop at say 25?

Stops at 26 though max set at 19

Many thanks, ***** ***** 'early start' function enabled, its set by a switch on the rear of the control panel

No idea. Unit was in place when we moved in 4 years ago, I have never removed unit.

OK, so this is a new fault, its unlikely to be a config issue.

Does the fault occur when on automatic and manual?

We returned from holiday to 26c reading. Tried manual and auto settings and problem continued. Just switched back on and reading current ambient temp 21c
Expert:  JamesI replied 1 year ago.

The fact it looks to be reading the correct ambient temp, would suggest the control board is faulty.

If it was the sensor I would expect to have seen it read constantly 26 degrees.

So its looking like you need to replace the control panel.

OK thanks. I believe model has been replaced by Th232 - presumably same wiring and underfloor sensor can be used
Expert:  JamesI replied 1 year ago.

Let me double check they may have a different connector.

Thanks
Expert:  JamesI replied 1 year ago.

Yes it should fit without the need to change the back plate, ive seen in on amazon for under £50 here.
