Rated 2 out of 5Â by Chef Only lasts a few months
Seems to be an issue with these as I am on my 3rd or 4th. They are easy to install, and work perfectly and then after a few months stop. The timer is still going round. Still switches when the over ride is used but no longer switches when used with the timer. Last one did exactly the same. Only had it 5 months.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Cheatch Excellent and simple to use
Simple to fit and operate. As a DIY'er you just can't go wrong with any aspect.

Bought this as they are good value. Unfortunately had to take this back for exchange as it didn't work on timer, but Screwfix changed it without quibble.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by SaltyOldDog Not to be relied on
I first ordered one of these in March but, because our gas boiler was still in operation, did not use the timer until May. The clock ran but the power did not get through to the immersion heater on the timed setting: The connections must have been OK because the immersion worked on the manual 'always on' setting.
Screwfix were more than helpful and sent me a replacement. It worked for about a month before failing in an almost identical way: The clock ran but there was no power to the immersion unless the timer was on manual.
Screwfix offered to send another replacement but I declined the offer and opted for a credit towards a digital timer. Maybe that'll be more reliable....
