    I have a zone valve that’s stopped working. A buddy of mine said he has a spare (synchronous motor) anyone ever fitted one before
    Any tips would be much appreciated.

    Hi marie,

    It depends on what make the motor is. If it’s a Honeywell then no problem, I had the same issues but I managed to download a video tutorial from this address.
    http://how-do-i-diy.moonfruit.com/RemodellingSynchron

    Its just two wires and two screws, but I have to admit I was more confident to do the work once I had seen it on the tutorial.

    I am no expert at plumbing but I am sure there are people on this site that would help you should you screw up.

    Good luck
    Tom

    HI Tom,

    Thanks for the advice. That link did not work for me so I did a google search and found this one http://grahamvideos.co.uk its probably the same site.. ?
    Anyway I downloaded the tutorial and fitted the motor ( I have hot water Yeees )
    You wouldn’t believe what a plumber was going to charge me.

    Thanks again
    Marie
