I thought that was the idea, they store the heat during the night on Economy7 and its there to be released during the day? :D

Sounds like the time on the timer is wrong.

They have no timer on the outside as such...just a knob to lift the vents ans a dial 1-6 which i assumed is how many hours you want it on for......perhapstheres a timer inside...there a bit old i think

They'll be a timer on your main consumer board by your meter, this activates the storage heater circuit at the preset time.

You know you've done yourself out... If it comes on early then all the better! Means you get cheaper electric sooner
