    Hi.

    I recently replaced the motor in a 3 way valve as sometimes it didnt seem to "pull" the lever down far enough to trigger the pump for providing CH. Hot water is fine.

    Pressing the manual leaver on the side a bit resulted in a little click (sounds like the micro switch) and everything working fine for a few days then it would fail again.

    Unfortunately its still the same after replacing the motor.

    What the next step? Replace the switch assembly as it seems like the switch is in the wrong position so the motor doesnt move the leaver far enough to trigger it ?

    Thanks in advance,

    Che

    if it's a Honeywell you can bend the bits about, bit it's probably on its last legs anyway.

    make sure the valve is moving freely before u stick a new head on, if its stiff ull have to replace it, better in the long run
