excellent item

" Don't know what other people's valves are like,mines is a danfoss. Reading other reviews and being an engineer I thought this would be an easy 5 min job as said by some but it definetly wasn't.
Product is a direct replacement for the motor already in my danfoss valve and is very simple, yet a little fiddly, to replace. Comes with crimp connectors supplied. For the cheapness of the item compared to a new valve I give it 5 stars.
Should maybe be added to description that soldering may be required. Lucky I had a soldering iron! "

Simple DIY fix
19 Feb 2015
By Murraybmw
, Wickham Market
" Easy 10min install (unless you try to amputate your thumb with a Stanley knife, then takes half an hour!!).
Cheap cure for failing CH system, constantly overheating as motorized valve not closing. Highly recommended. Also bought wireless room thermostat, but will wait until I have the use of both thumbs before I install!!!
Would recommend wire strippers instead of a Stanley knife!!!

An instock item at a reasonable price, and shop open till 8pm! "

Great alternative repair.
24 Oct 2014
By GrandadBeer65

" Purchased this after noticing that our radiators were getting hot with just hot water set on the programmer. The 3 way valve seemed to be working ok visually but must be playing up so it was certainly easier to try a new motor than changing a valve.The motor was changed in about 20 minutes, made easier by having spade connectors fitted already, tested and it worked and problem solved. So I would definitely recommend trying a new motor before the valve.
Have given 4 stars for reliability as its only been fitted for a week, otherwise, very pleased with this solution. Thank you.

, stoke on trent
" 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
7 Oct 2014
By andyBP
, 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.. "

Good replacement
2 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. "

Ideal replacement, and fittings provided to connect wires. Great relief not having to replace whole valve!

Simple easy to fit replacement
14 Feb 2014
By carmad

" 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 Edazza
, 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 RichD

" 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. "
