danfoss SET3E contlolled heating system ?

In my Danfoss SET3E heating controlled system I can't turn the water heater section OFF! The switch on the controller is off and the light is extinguished but the boiler keeps going!. The only way to switch it off is to remove the 3 amp fuse. Switching on the 3 amp fuse and the boiler starts up again and the water gets very hot.

Check the 2 switch wires are not mixed up ( in your programmer ) and it's always calling for heat instead of hot water . Possibly wired wrong ..

OK, so: Is the controller telling the heating to run, when it shouldn't be telling it that, or is there a fault in the rest of the set up that means the heating runs?

There's a manual here:

http://www.gasapplianceguide.co.uk/Danfoss%20PDF/Danfoss%20SET%203E%20Install%20and%20User.pdf

You an check the switch with a battery and bulb or maybe a multimeter on ohms. Take the SET3 off the wall and check for a short between pins 4 and 5 on the back of the controller (see manual). If there's a short, get a new programmer.

The other possibility is if you have a diverter valve and it is stuck in "Heating" position. With that kind of set up, the controller calls for heating but that only makes the diverter valve run. When the diverter valve is in the right position it turns the boiler and / or pump on. If the valve is stuck in "Heat" the boiler will run all the time.

You 'll need to find it and check. There's usually a manual lever you can twiddle. There's some generic info here:

If you know what make/model yours is, you should be able to find info online. (It may be an integral part of the boiler)
