Yes I do have that system set up.

Hi , most likely your hot water motorised valve motor needs replacing . to test this when you switch the prog for hot water , check that the manual lever for the valve is moving over. What make is motorised valve?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Hi,when i select hw boost on there is no movement of the lever.

The make is a honeywell,guess it must be 20 years old now.

I'm assuming it will be the motor in the valve , as 9 times out of ten its the faulty part in this situation. If its that old I don't think you can just replace the head as it won't be like the newer ones ,so you will need to drain down and replace , but if you have the model no , I will check that for you .

Hi Toby,

it says for head replacement use 40003916-001.Is that still avail.

Hi , yes you can . its one sxrew I think to remove the cover then two screws to remove the head body. Replace wires ( take a photo first or write and number) you can get the head from any plumbers merchant

Hi Toby,I will replace it and let you know.

Cheers,

joe.
