Boiler Larrs Lite 2, gas valve Type VS8820A 1001

CE 0063A030902 ,do you know where I can get it ? Thanks. By the way I thought I had already rated your services, I will do it again.

Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 2 years ago.
OK will check it out, why do you think it is the coil of the gas valve that is causing the problem, these are remarkably reliable?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

After testing all connections with Ohms meter when mains is connected it just trip ! I know the gas valve is seldom to go wrong, but as the timer was kaput I guess the boiler has been running 24 hrs for a while !

Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 2 years ago.
OK I have tried at least 7 supplier who advise that the coil is not available as a separate item and that you have to replace the whole gas valve assembly at about £500 from all of them - the only thing I can suggest is to go directly to Honeywell and see if they can get you one in - http://www.honeywelluk.com/ -- Ian

Honeywell ~01344 656200 or you could try this company which seem to be having a deal on them check it is the correct valve ~~ http://www.apuliapools.co.uk/lite-gas-valve-nat-vs8820a-1001-1.html ~~ Ian

Hi Ian, do you know where I can get a non voltage timer ? Thanks

Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 2 years ago.

Could you kindly explain abit more as what you want or are trying to do, are you just wanting a timer that switches a set of contacts rather than being used to switch mains voltage. ??

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

When I toldApulia Pools where I am purchasing the gas valve ,I need a timer. they told me I need a non voltage timer for the Larrs boiler !.

Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 2 years ago.
Try this company ~~ https://www.ia.omron.com/products/family/222/specification.html
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

In your opinion do you think the timer should be non voltage, the one which I have to replace looks like all ordinary timers.
