Push buttons on heating controls donít work on every push

Push buttons on rhf 1a receiver (Eph controls) donít work on five or six pushes - sporadically work. How to fix?

Welcome to the forums from Ireland.

This is a primarily a North American based site.
I don't recognize what you have there. Not sure we can help you.

If it's like our older Honeywell thermostats...... as they get older..... the buttons become intermittent.
As far as I know.... they aren't cleanable or replaceable.

Thank you Pete. The gas boiler control is only 3 years old. When setting times for system to come on there are push button squares to + or - times and another to ok. These sometimes work on first press but sometimes need to be pressed a number of times before they react. Is there some way of fixing them?

I still don't recognize your heating unit.
Try posting a picture of it........ How-to-insert-pictures.

Are these real buttons that push in or a overlay on a flat panel. If overlay they are known to go bad fairly quick. Some last longer than others. Sorry about underline didn't know button was pushed.

Yes a picture might help as it depends on the type of keypad.

Some can be taken apart and the keys internal surfaces cleaned.

Others have to be replaced
