I bought 3 plug-in timers from Wickes.
On the outside of the packaging it says "suitable for a 3KW
On the inside (ha ha!), it says:
"Must not be used for fan heaters" - that I can see the
point of, in case the cat tips the heater or whatever up.
It also says:
"Should not be used for immersion heaters" - Why is this?
I bought the things with a view to using one for an immersion
heater! What problem might this cause? This is a big PITA.
These timers are also not suitable for washing machines -
presumably because of the inductive load.
