Hi my name is XXXXX XXXXX lets see if we can get you sorted in the shortest possible time. If the timeclock said the system was off then it could be a stuck relay inside the timer. Which Potterton boiler is it?

Hi. It say Suprima
Two things could keep the boiler on - a faulty time clock supplying power when it should be off, or a faulty motorised valve (either stuck in the open position or the microswitch inside is stuck "made")
