What do you need to know about Honeywell 3 way valve?

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS V4073A Motorised Mid-Position Valve Application The V4073A valve has been designed to control the flow of water in a small bore domestic central heating system where both radiator and hot water cylinder circulation are pumped. It is typically suited for systems up to 90,000 Btu/h (26 KW).

How to fix a stuck Honeywell 3 port zone?

1) The spindle is detached/broken from the valve internal gate and stuck in the HW/CH position………. . Drain down and change the valve………. or 2) That system has always worked that way but you’ve failed to notice it before now…………. Ask a heating engineer to assist. Lucia. Thank you for the input so far.
