"After reading reviews I ordered this motor to replace a original honeywell motor from a 3 position valve. The original had lasted for 25 years. It was a identical unit and fitted in minutes. Supplied with crimps to join the wires. I am a electrician so had crimpers to make a good connection. Cant say about reliability yet but works perfectly."

Great fit - easily solved prob
07-Oct-2014
By
, Dorset
"Have a Horstmann F222 two way zone valve that was playing up. Picked one of these up after reading other reviews. Easy to change (2 screws) and used soldering iron to remove 2 wires from tiny PCB and re-soldered new wires in, works a treat.
The motor is made by Synchron (USA), who, I think, are the original manufacturer of these motors. Its a shame that Horstmann chose to fit inferior motors that only last a year or two.."

"This is the second replacement motor bought from Screwfix to keep a now 22yr old Honeywell valve running. The previous one has lasted nearly 10 years, and fitting is so simple, a 5 min job. Click and collect from the local depot was effortless, thank you!"

Good replacement
02-Jun-2014
By
, Stirling
"A good brand which should give reasonable lifespan. Very useful as it save having to replace whole zone valve. Check cogwheel drive though as if you have a Siemens (Landis and Staefa) RMH valve you will need to change over the brass drivewheel as the original has a longer reach. Also before you change you may find that the electrical connections need to be revamped for the RMH valve."

"Replaced the motor in a Horstmann F322 which had been installed for only a relatively short period of time.
Ideal replacement, and fittings provided to connect wires. Great relief not having to replace whole valve!

Simple easy to fit replacement
14-Feb-2014

, Waterlooville
"When the motorised valve packed up on my Horstmann F322 three port valve, I traced the problem and found to my dismay that the valves are not that reliable ,with the motors lasting around 18 months, I thought that I would have to drain down and fit a whole new unit...but wait whats this a replacement motor that might fit.... and it does, it took me all of 15 mins to exchange the motor and the kit even includes crimp connectors to connect to the existing wires....perfect. Fantastic value item, I have scored it 5 stars for reliability even though its only been fitted for a couple of days, even if it fails next month its still a cheap no messing fix."

A job you can do yourself
11-Dec-2013
By
, Lenham, Kent
"My Honeywell heating valve was playing up, so after getting a quote for call out and possible parts all amounting to around 100 pounds plus, I decided to do it myself. The motor was a straight swap and rewire, all easy to do and done in less than 15 min. System back up and running for the price of this motor. I would recommend trying this before replacing more expensive parts."

Thrifty repair
29-Nov-2013
By
, Cardiff
"It took me hours to teach myself how a central heating valve worked and work out what had gone wrong, but only ten minutes to fit the new motor. Two screws and two spade connectors.
It would have been a shame to have thrown out a £90 valve for the sake of a £14 motor. I'm glad Screwfix were able to provide it and glad I tracked it down. My heating is now fit for the winter!"

"A lot less hassle than replacing a complete valve I'm a spark and not a ch installer but I found replacing the motor easy enough the wiring is self explanatory really. all in all a simple procedure. Gave reliability 4 as only installed 2 weeks ago."

Fix that valve!
24-Oct-2013
By
, Truro Cornwall
"Failure of a 3-way electric actuated valve?
1) Check actuation manually by lever.
2) Check synchro motor running on heat request to feed hot water or central heating circuits.
If not, the problem is most probably the synchro motor. This is an ideal replacement costing a fraction of a new actuator assembly or complete valve, and easily and swiftly fitted!"

"Loads cheaper than a new valve body - for a tenner & an hours work under a worktop, the uncooperative C.heating is working properly again .
An easy fit if you have full access to the motor casing."

Fits Horstmann F322M Diverter
26-Mar-2013
By
, Nottingham
"I am now on my third actuator. Which died after 2 years. Forunately I had one in stock which cost me £69 to buy until the last actuator was replaced under warranty. As i am out of warranty now, I decided it was worth the gamble of your Drayton fitting. No websites mention compatibility with Horstmann. Not only does it fit, it works too. Time will tell, reliability wise."

Perfect Alternative
14-Jan-2013
By
, Bracknell
"I found this replacement motor whilst searching for a replacement Myson MPE 322 diverter valve on the web. After having read the reviews on this site, I thought it worth a punt considering its cost versus a replacement valve since I'd already diagnosed the problem to be a faulty motor.
However, I was uncertain as to whether this motor would fit the Myson as none of the reviewee's mention having had replaced the motor on a Myson diverter. Having looked at the picture and comparing it with the actual motor on my diverter, it appeared to be the same.
Purchased the motor on-line, collected it from my local Screwfix outlet and replaced the old motor all within a matter of an hour.
The motor is an exact match and the only extra adaptation required was the connection of the wires. Here you have two options, you either cut and join the wires using the wire joining crimps provided, or solder the new wires to the pc board where the feed comes from for the motor (Don't forget to switch off the mains to prevent possible electrocution). I opted for the former.
The only question mark left to answer is longevity. Time will tell I guess, but at the price being offered by Screwfix at the moment, it was a no brainer for me anyway.
Well Done!!! Screwfix. Please keep up the sourcing of items such as these to help keep the cost of home maintenance affordable."

Definitely recommend this
12-Jan-2013
By
, Camberley
"Having worked out that the 3-way valve on the heating was dodgy, causing lack of central heating but hot water still being ok, I spotted this replacement motor. I thought this must be easier than replacing the whole valve, and is certainly a lot cheaper.
Although it's a Drayton part, it's an exact replacement for the motor in my Siemens 3-way valve (other reviewers have used it in various other manufacturer's valves, so maybe they all use the same style of motor?).
It was a very simple job to swap out the old one with this new one - it took me less than 15 minutes from start to finish, and I was taking my time over it.
Definitely to be recommended as long as you're sure it's only the motor that's gone wrong!"
