anyoone got a fix for this one !
i have no CH as of last week

Conventional system. Programmer fine, new; thermostat, fine (3 years old)

I have a crap Drayton Floweshare 2 ~ 2 position. not even a selectable mid position with which to have heating AND Hot water active's allways swithing to the HW position; when i move the lever to the CH position, it returns to the HW position

is it faulty or should i look elsewhere for why CH is not working; as all rads are cold i didn't think of investigation the possibility of a airlock, but any help would be appreciated!


ps. i've heard about replacing a motised vavlve, but this is a old flowshare 2...
