Hi my name is Andrew - lets see if we can get you sorted in the shortest possible time. Can you list the make and model of the boiler and the type of roomstat.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.


Its a 'Worcester Greenstar HE' and a wireless Drayton Digistat.
Expert:  Andrew Smith replied 5 years ago.
Ok, try taking the wireless stat off the wall and placing next to the receiver. Turn off the power and take out the batteries, wait 5 minutes, then turn on the power and refit the batteries. It should all sync back together. Let me know how you get on.

Thank you. All working

Glad to hear it. Be careful when you put your roomstat back as there may now be something interfering with the signal and you may have to relocate it.
