Perhaps a programmable thermostat was intended to be put there. Was it wired in triple and earth?

I recently had to speak with a gas installer who fitted a replacement boiler in one of my client's properties while I was on holiday. He hadn't fitted a roomstat, although boiler did have a clock. He was unaware that both are required under building regs. He went around and fitted a wireless one free of charge.

I would re label it

 

The on position "Too Hot"

The off position "Too Cold"

Possibly installed by the same person that wired up a Y plan like this....how has this ever worked?

No, the bare earth is wrapped around the white

I'll bet that CPC is being  used as a live conductor because someone didn't put the right cable in?

There's actually no connection from that terminal to the clock, looks like it might just be used as a connector in this instance.

That was my initial thought......but no they ARE CPCs

next terminal is also a joint from boiler to call wire

both terminals have been shoved out of the way of the clock contacts

i cannot see that it has ever worked properly as there are not enough cores at the Y valve JB. There is N, E, Heating demand, HW demand and a singles back to fire the boiler up, that's it....no HW satisifed.

and getting another core to it is going to be a nightmare

Convert it to an S plan and there is no need to add another core.
