Customer Question

Hello! Just moved into a house with a drayton digistat +3rf. The previous owner left instruction leaflets and it looks all programmed and ready to go. But we can't work out how to make the heating/hot water actually come on. Thanks

Hi! Have replaced batteries in stat. It used to read arrow to 'Auto' arrow to correct day,A temp of 17 degrees a small numeral 6 at bottom and the correct time..and a flame icon..that has now disappeared after my fiddling around with it but the rest is still there. also on the stat near the boiler there used to be two lights and green..since I started pressing things those have both gone out. It's an oil powered external boiler which has a switch saying on. Thanks
