    My parent's house has a very old Servowarm Manual Diverter and when I tried to budge the lever...it came off in my hand! The thread looks completely shot and no matter how hard I try, I cannot get the lever back in to move the control back towards CH.

    Any ideas on a quick fix?

    Of course, I'll have to get the whole thing completely changed so what would be the best (and most cost-effective) solution for a couple in their 70s with arthritis in their wrists ie. no mechanical effort required.

    Thanks!

    Do you mean this one?

    Servowarm valve.
    Partscenter Part No. 460744 OEM REGA Selector Valve

    Anyone got a diagram or photo of this?

    Is this a straight replacement for the older one?

    Thanks!

    Just a quick follow-up to say that Parts Center are not holding stock at the moment and I had to order directly from Rega Vent. Check before you drive down...
