Great product
30 May 2015
By e16calum
, Bridgend
" This timer is great for all sorts of applications. I use a lot as lighting controllers and the small size of the silent unit means that it can be installed unobtrusively. The screen is a fine size as you will normally set it up ones. It's not a daily changeable piece of kit - may aswell have a switch if that's the case. Easy go program and adjust too. "

Time and time again...

By WhyWasMyNameTaken

" Recently installed this for a water heater and was incredibley easy to set up.
With a click of a few buttons the product was up and running.
Only thing instructions didn't mention is that if the time you are setting for switching on has already passed you have to either wait for time to come back around or manually override and then switch back to auto.
Other than this little hiccup product extremely simple to use. "

Wish I'd fitted one years ago
31 May 2015
By diditourselves
, London
" A very easy fit just remember to pick up some flex 3 core at the same time. Screwfix do it in a 1m length which was perfect. As with other reviewers I agree the display is a bit small and difficult to read. But once you've got it programmed how often are you actually going to look at it? Instructions for fitting are pretty much non existent but are fine for programming. "

" 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

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

By lesbo

" I know this has been mentioned in other reviews, but the display really is useless unless you have a magnifying glass to hand. The settings are awkward and painstaking and not helped by the enclosed instruction leaflet. Hopefully once it is set properly it will be Ok But I'm not holding my breath. "

Does job but v small display
29 Jan 2015
By russ50
, Merseyside
" Bought as a towel rail timer outside a bathroom.
As other reviewers: Very Very small display, I needed a magnifier and torch to read when holding in my hand let alone in a dark cupboard.
Yes, only a single centre earth terminal, OK for a towel rail with 1.5mm cable but if 2.5mm cable and flex for an immersion this would be an issue.
Setting is straightforward (with magnifier) but this on/off/auto on the display is so small and not the easiest when switching off before holiday etc.
