If you are using a timer, you must leave the main heater switch on.
Do you need to set a timer?
Setting the clock
Set the clock timing before you start setting the timers.
Setting the timers
When the clock timing is set, you may proceed to set your first timer. Usual peak shower periods vary but are commonly set for one-hour intervals.
Timer setting range:
Timer 1: 21:00(pm) to 08:00(am)
Timer 2: free range
If you would like to set your timer out of the timer 1 range, please contact us and we will be glad to advise you.
At any time, press the ‘program’ key to toggle between turning on only ‘timer 1’, only ‘timer 2’, both timers or to turn off all timers.
Other water heater models
The control panel used for this tutorial is for the Gen 6 Digital Heaters. For other water heater variations, the concept remains the same. Clock settings and the timer are adjusted with the ‘program’ button. See below for more detailed control panel diagrams.
For central heat pumps (HPI, HPA)
