Hi All,

Just moved into a new house which has oil central heating. There is a Honeywell thermostat in the house which I think I have worked out. The boiler is in an out house. From what I can see the heating should be on. The controls look as follows. I'm pretty sure there is some oil in the tank. I know that picture shows the heating and water as off but I did have it set to on and no joy. Does anyone know what the box with the one button on the left is. The bottom light is currently flashing red.

Thanks

The programmer (time clock) is set to off.
Bottom part of it is a drop down door flick it down and use buttons to move the arrow each side to either timed or on.
The box on left is rf thermostat receiver.

Yes I know when this picture was taken the heating and water were both set to the off position. I did have them both set to on aswell but the heating still would not come on. Both were set to on and the thermostat had a picture of a little flame on the top right signalling it was calling for heat but the boiler wasn't going anything.

See if boiler has any power on lights on it
If it has a door on front of boiler take it off
See if burner has red light showing if it has typically push it in .

Boiler has a green power light an an amber light on below it. 3 way switch set to up for boiler, middle is off and bottom is I'm, for immersion. Not at the house now will take pictures with door off tomorrow

No it’s not normal. I would suspect the pump, or a motorised valve initially.
