Customer Question
Just moved into a...

Just moved into a flat with an old (2007 Alpha) Easy-Stat transmitter. I have the instructions, but cannot get them to work for the Pd settings (the P1-P4 settings are too rigid and unsuitable). The instructions for the process of setting variable daily times are not sufficiently detailed. For example, the + and - buttons seem to perform different functions at different points in the process without explaining how to change the mode. I have been going round in circles for ages. Are there more detail instruction available somewhere?

Contractor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

OK. If I press the + button (as instructed) for 'on' settings and then change the time, how do I then set the 'off' time? Pressing the - button (as instructed) just adds another increment to the time for the 'on' setting i.e. how do I change the function of the + and - buttons from altering the time set to changing mode from 'on' to 'off'?
