VALUE FOR MONEY

"Bought this to replace a mechanical, timer.
Easy to fit and set up.
Display a bit small but as this was being fitted
in an airing cupboard and not looked at very often not too much of a problem.

Godsend when working
20 Jan 2014
By MissT
, Kent
"I had had this for two months and I went to have a bath one morning, water was freezing cold. It had completely packed up. Luckily my dad works as a gas/heating engineer so we took a trip to Screwfix and they exchanged it there and then. When you first set it up make sure it's not set on "R" for random as mine was first off and took me a while to figure out why it wasnt working. If this one doesn't pack up after 2 months I will be more than happy. Coudl do with a backlight on the display but a torch works just as well! doesnt make a sound and is perfect (when working)."

Switch Worked - so far
31 Mar 2013
By belicose
, Midlands
"Installation looks good and unit is smart design. Well designed for surface mounted installation but window is small and difficult to read when setting and checking settings.
First sample was faulty by not switching OFF. Second sample seems to be working well.
Device includes 10 selectable cycles. I want one daily. Instructions do not include what to do about unwanted cycles. Seems they should be just left blank - at least that is what I have done!!
Installed as replacement for electro-mechanical clock switch that was noisy. This is peace!!!!!

Simple digital timer solution
2 Jan 2013
By Freeglide
, Farnborough UK
"Read a lot of the review complaining about this digital immersion timer - but for the price its good value. I did not have any trouble wiring it - I had it fitted in minutes. The digital display is tiny as others have mentioned - the manufacturer should really make this bigger and charge a little more for it. It could also do with a back lit display - I have to get my torch to check if Auto is set. However with the small niggle with the display being small - it has worked without fault and turned on my immersion morning and night - saving me money on my electric bills. Great service and price from Screwfix as usual."

Not bad for the money
19 Nov 2012
By GizzyWolf
, Horsham
"Ok, the screen is a bit small, but doesn't need a magnifying glass.
You can set up to 10 programs per day (5 on, 5 off) or easily block the week with the same programs.
Would have been really helpful if the screen had a backlight, but can't complain for the money!
Would definitely buy again.

Immersion timer
14 Oct 2011
By beachboy
, Felixstowe
"I installed this in conjunction with my PV panels so as to make use of the electricity generated during the middle of the day. It was simple to install and works well. My one complaint is with the size of the display. The print is very small. However as I do not plan to change the settings on a frequent basis the should not be too much of a problem."

Immersion Timer
18 Sep 2011
By Jagman
, Aylesbury
"Fairly simple instructions to fit in line with the immersion heater..
Setting timings could be easier but it is working satisfactorily and battery held its charge for a week without mains power and not loosing the time or settings
Reasonably compact 60mm x 110mm approx
However time/setting display is rather small at 25mm x 10mm and it is not illuminated so you need a torch to set or read it

LAP Immersion Timer
21 Jun 2014
By Kingers34
, Birchington on sea
"The timer is reasonably priced, robust, and has good program options, including the OFF/on/Auto button, and the summer winter quick change setting.
From a technical point of view it’s disappointing, as I have had it 24 hours and on the way back to screwfix branch to exchange it, as the display is incomplete and the day setting cannot be seen at all.
The wiring connection is fiddly, but it does have 2 knock outs inside the termination area, so can be made nice and neat.
The display ought to be bigger, as this is its main down side.
There are also cable clamps and knock outs in the termination cover.
Just be aware that the power in is on the right (Up arrow symbol), and switched power out is on the left with a (down arrow symbol).
You have to allow 14 hours for the backup battery to charge, not sure if this runs the display as I had issues with the display numbers (top of numbers missing), which I assumed was a flat battery, but this wasn’t the case.
Suggest its worth wiring the incoming supply first, power it up, and check the display digits are ok, and all the days can be seen ok, before final connections and programming are done.
Get a good torch, or lit magnifying glass to complete the time and programming as the display is very small!

By dave1276r434

"first one was dead on arrival so after a trip back to screwfix for a replacement finally got a working unit.
Its okay but the setup instructions are very poor and the LCD distlay on the unit is soooo small its very difficult to setup as you cant see whats going on - trying to set it up on a nice bright workbench might be fine, but in a dark cupboard holding a torch in one hand trying to see the display (which reflects badly) is near on impossible. Yes it works and now its working will probably never try to alter it....

Good but could be improved.
16 Nov 2012
By Muckypup
, Felixstowe
"I purchased the latest as a direct replacement for one than thad been installed for the last couple of years. It has all the features that one might expect from an immersion timer, but unless your eyes are very good, you might just need glasses or a magnifying glass to see the very small text for the 'on, off & auto' facilities.
Where it could be improved is the screw terminals for the cables, which are screws directly into the wire(s). Since the nasty vibration gremlins have a habit of undoing screws, one can get (as I did) a burnt out terminal.

Timer rather fiddly to use
22 Mar 2012
By 72327
, Derby
"Very very competively priced, looks neat, has plenty of features & is easy to programme. No doubting it makes an excellent immersion heater timer where the installer normally sets & forgets. But I've used it on a job to control a bathroom radiator / towel rail which means the customer will need to adjust the heating on-off periods according to the seasons. I think the customer is going to find the adjustment fiddly because of the minscule display size - believe me it's too small. Also switching between 'auto - manual on/ off' mode is done via the cluster of push buttons while reading the minute display, so again it's not so friendly to use. Pity a rocker switch wasn't used for this purpose. Also there is no boost switch facility - essential for immersion duty & would be equally useful for my towel rail application. All in all a brilliant product but be careful how & where you use it."

LAP Immersion Timer
8 Nov 2011
By Maudlin
, Northampton
"Build quality is fairly good. Display characters are almost impossible to read.There are two sets, time and day (auto,on/oof etc) These are far too small and would reckon no higher than a millimetre. Terminals and space for wiring is a bit lacking. Why the unit has to be so small I cannot understand, as it would normally be mounted on a back plane of some sort not within a housing. Battery back up is good feature and seems to work well. Overall a good unit at a reasonable price. Let down by display and terminals"

immersion heater digital timer
26 Oct 2011

"t
The timer was easy to install however what let it down was the LED display - the symbols and figures are very small & are not illuminated, so if the power source is in a restricted place(as inevitably it is) it is almost impossible to set up. Would not buy one again.
