Question about Honeywell Heating & Cooling

2 Answers

I have a Honeywell V4073A1039 3 position divertor valve mounted in my airing cupboard controlling the heating/ HW distribution. Currently when switching on the HW and CH the radiators get hot as expected but the HW is only just warm. When switching on the HW only the water still only gets warm. The Boiler and programmer are brand new but the divertor is older. I have removed the cover and noted that the motor is warm despite the system HW and CH being off for some hours and the surrounding pipework is cold. Am I correct in assuming that the motor needs replacing or could it be more significant?

Is there a cylinder with a thermostat in your system? The stat is usually fixed onto the cylinder using a strap or band to hold it in place. If has been knocked or the setting changed you will not get the hot water you want. It could even be faulty.
Failing that the diverter valve could be defective. You can usually test the valve by a metal (latching) lever on the valve body that physically locks the valve into the 'mid' position allowing heating and hot water to operate. You can test the system this way but don't leave it locked open as you will loose control of the temperatures of the heating and hot water. Good luck!

My Honeywell thermostat isnt keeping my house cool even though the temp is set to 69. Currently 90 degrees in here


Its probably not the thermostat. The air conditioner may be stuck on heating mode. If its a reverse cycle, the reversing valve may be jammed so even when the thermostat is calling for cold air, it stays on heat. If the machine is on heating mode, it should be blowing cold air out of the outdoor unit of the air con. If its on cooling mode, the outdoor should be blowing hot air.

Air conditioning will not switch from defrost vents


Vacuum control motors are used to position these airflow control doors.
SECTION 412-01: Air Distribution and Filtering 2000 Expedition/Navigator Workshop Manual DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Procedure revision date: 06/17/1999 Air Distribution There are two sources of air available to the air distribution system:
  • outside air
  • recirculated air
Recirculated air is only used during MAX A/C, AUTOMATIC (if equipped with EATC) and OFF modes.
Air distribution within the vehicle is determined by the function selector switch position, if equipped with manual A/C, or is controlled by the electronic automatic temperature control system in the AUTOMATIC mode but can be overridden by the driver if desired. Airflow control doors are used to direct airflow within the heater air plenum chamber. Vacuum control motors are used to position these airflow control doors.
The air distribution system is designed to provide airflow from the defrost nozzle when no vacuum is applied to any of the vacuum control motors. This is done to prevent a situation where defrost cannot be obtained due to a system vacuum leak.
Air enters the passenger compartment from the:
  • instrument panel A/C registers.
  • heater outlet floor duct.
  • windshield defroster hose nozzle.
  • side window demisters.
  • rear seat airflow duct (if equipped).
Passenger compartment air is exhausted from the vehicle through open windows or cab air vents.

Ideal boiler no heat to radiators but hot water still working


check the divertor head and valve.
sounds like it ist adjusing from dhw to ch.
take head off(remove pi at back,or side pin) and push pin in valve when calling for ch,if it works then the head has gone.

Central haeting ok but no hot water


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.

No hot water honeywell st6400c


HW valve was stuck in the open posiion and the micro-switch was not working so thats why boiler and pump were not starting. Bled system to below the level of the valve to be changed, and replaced valve with a drayton ( easy quick change of valve head if needed no screws )
