    Sometimes when I try switching the Control panel on, it works first time. On other occasions it does nothing, no display, just blank.

    Does anyone know why this happens? Or better still, know why this happens?

    Cheers

    It might be different to mine but ours is blank unless you put the little switch to 12v.

    If its not on 12v the controls work but the panel itself doesn't light up.

    some digital panels won't power up if the battery is low.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I only managed to switch it on once today! Then I switched it off.

    Tried several times since with no luck.

    No, there's no 12v switch on it.

    So, I went to my E-Box switched it off, pulled the main 50amp fuse and secondary fuse. They tested fine with my meter. Put them back in and switched the E-Box on and as if by magic, it worked! Strange but true - I'm happy :BigGrin:

    I've hooked up to the mains now and gonna leave the heating on for a while.

    I feel Spring coming on :thumb: and we must get more use this year, last year was a wash out.

    In the E-Control manual it states the need for a disk battery as follows:

    Burstner E-Control
    Lithium Disc Battery
    Diameter 20mm
    Thickness 3.2mm
    Voltage 3.0v
    Capacity 180mah

    Anyone know the batery number - aka LR *** or whatever?

    Battery was very low and on charge from EHU - might have been the issue :)
