The central heating side works fine butwhen I select HW the the pump runs and the boiler fires up but the water does not appear to be flowing to the tank coil.

    i have a towel rail that is in parrellel with the hot water tank coil and that gets hot with no problems, The valve motor moves ok when switching between central heating and hot water, Is ther a chance that it may be an air lock?

    have solved the problem. It was the mechanics between the motor and thw valve shaft jamming up. flush out with WD40. It now works a treat.

If the valve runs at other times, the valve is OK. you have a relay somewhere that is not sending signal to the valve when in that mode.

Trace down all the relays for that cycle and check voltage going int, coming out, and to see if the coil is enrgised.

How do I fix central heating


The first thing you need to substantiate is the fact that there is enough water in the system. It will be a closed loop system requiring approximately 10 psi/ floor. (Only a rule of thumb). Usually when one protion of the system works and the other does not, it is an issue of water quantity available to circulate through the combination of loops. If you have to add water, you will probably have to purge air from the highest points in the system. Even if there is an "Airtrol" fitted in the bottom of the expansion tank, bleeding the high points will eliminate air quicker.

The hot water portion of the loop should only be going through a heat exchanger that transfers the loop temp to the domestic water circuit and the three way valve is probably a 'mixing valve' utilized to maintain a certain loop temperature on the primary loop.

I have honeywell v4073a 22 m valve on my central heating and need to get the head off as the valve appears to be sticking and is not sending hot water to the radiators. How do I remove it to check if it...


If you remove the cover of the valve ,you should see some screws that hold the motor head to the valve. you can loosen these screw and the head will come off of the valve body without leaking fluid. you then can try to pivot the valve stem and see if it is sticking or if the the valve motor needs to be replaced. reverse process to install. hope this helps.

Honeywell T403A1174 suddenly doesn't appear to call for heat


some times inside the boiler on the internal pipework you will see little sensors, on the central heating piping there sometimes is a thermastic sensor on side of flow pipe with a little reset button on ? i guess with the problem you said the poiler locked out and the pipe work overheated ? this is a safety feature on some boilers not, all and easerly reset via this button ?

Water leaking


it sounds like the gland on the valve is leaking unusual in a valve so young but it does happen. is the valve electrical operated or water pressure. you should be able to get a complete diaphram kit with all seals etc .
