    I have recently bought a flat with electratech system to storage heaters and immersion heater. The control panel is asking for a password that I haven't got and the system isn't working properly. Someone seems to have a manual for this - please can this be sent to jonny<u>j</u>harris@hotmail.com or does anyone know an over-ride? or someone who will look at in Stockport, Cheshire?

    Guys, I have just moved into a flat with the Electra Tech system and same as a few others, there's a PIN number requested on the display which I don't have and can't get past. Can anyone shed some light on this or email me a manual. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi there,

    Been reading this chat and realise much of it took place some years ago but have just encountered problems with my Electratech system, which is now asking for a code, as seems to have happened to several of you previously. Any chance that anyone who is in possession of a set of instructions could email a copy to me. My email is juliansquires@yahoo.co.uk

    Thanks a lot.

    Just had a real problem with electratech/smart heat storage heating controls. No electrician i contacted would touch this complicated system. Eventually found someone called John who came and sorted it all out. He used to install these systems for Norweb back in the dark ages, his website is Norwebelectrical.co.uk He was brilliant, sorted it all out and it didn't cost an arm or a leg (unlike some other quotes i had).

    Well here's a shock for you - I designed the bloody thing years ago, it was a job for Norweb done by Carters in Burnley.

    Basically the original version (with the membrane keypad) consisted of two units, the controller keypad and a relay conroller - these were linked by a serial interface, four wires, carrying power for the keypad and data/clock lines.

    I have very little information on the subsequent unit - after I left the system was altered to use a normal (non-membrane) keypad, different processor etc and it's possible that there were even later versions.

    If you have one of the membrane types, reply with more details of the fault and I'll try and tell you where to look.

    Hi I have just seen this site and could do with some help.
    My daughter has just moved into an apartment with this Norweb smart heat storage heaters installed.
    I have had to install new heaters and also move the location of some of them, the old ones were u/s.
    I could do with a manual if you still have one as i need to reprogram the controller.
    Should this controller find new units installed automatically or do you have to tell it which circuit it is on.
    The receivers are apollo ones and some of them do not work i see that they have switches in them and they seem to have different settings for the heaters does the manual explain this.

    watcha spud gun.
    hello. chances are you're fed up with hearing about these controllers but I need to ask you for a copy of the manual please.

    I've got a friend of a friend who is an OAP and it turns out he's been struggling on with just one storage heater working and no hot water on a system that has one of these weird and wonderful controllers.

    he's a bit hard up and a bit proud so he's put up with it for a while.
    I'd like to help him - and i'm not going to charge him, but i would prefer to reprogram the controller rather than rip out bits of kit i've never seen before.
    he's got no idea where the MI are so I'm desperate for a copy.
    thanks, andy jones.

    Hi Spud Gun

    Could I please have a copy of this manual? It is the "membrane type keypad" that I have. I was quite surprised not to find a PDF copy on the web somewhere.

    e-mail is keith@postill.me.uk

    Thanks in advance.

    I am using a spoon to operate the circuits underneath the membrane!

    We had a powercut a couple of days ago, and the room defitions got lost - need to find out how to reprogram the rooms.

    Basically, we had it on constantly for the last 2 years (not cheap!), because it was always displaying "Press Set Key to Cancel" and this blocked the circuits from comng back on, so we had to have the timers switched off, and the heaters on constantly.
