    Hello everybody,
    I have just fitted a new Stanley Brandon 100k oil fired cooker and
    need to change the old moterised valves, i have a sealed system
    and do not know how to drain and refill if i have to or if there is a simple
    way around this, :?:

    hi gasman.
    thanks for your interest,i should have said a plumber fitted the
    new one , i have to replace old valves because they only have
    two wires and the new ones have five so i can heat water
    without heating rads.hope this makes sense to you.

    I think Ben is more asking a question of why the valves weren't replaced when the cooker was installed, as presumably it would have been drained down for this.

    but i think he just will not admit he missed it .

    In answer to your question sealed system just screw down caps on any auto air vents. release the pressure and it should vacum up quite quickly usually after a few pints of water has come out then change on valve at a time
