Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another replacement I purchased this to replace what according to the manufacturer was an out of date model that only wanted to heat my water. Installation of the actuator on the valve is simple as it is a clip on fitment and the wiring schema is the same as the old one, including the wire colours. That meant the only skill needed was to carefully replace each coloured wire in turn and then turn the power back on. So far, after only a couple of days,my heating system is back to fully responding to the demand from the timer etc so it's done what it is supposed to. Although I've given it 3 stars for reliability, I've no way of knowing how it will fair in the long term but so far so goo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An easy replacement I bought this to replace the old existing unit which was occasionally failing to fully switch over, resulting in continuous uncontrolled heating. It was very quick and easy to fit this replacement without needing any specialist skills. So far it is working perfectly and doing exactly what is says on the box.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A must for mid position valves The simple technology and unreliable design of mid-postion valves means you need to replace the actuator a lot. Best to avoid them in the first place. My previous replacement actuator lasted just over a year, then a power cut which flashed back on briefly either welded together or burnt out one of the microswitches inside. They are not man enough for the job. Added to that the price of this item has increased by 10% since my last one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Limited life of plastic pegs I bought this to replace a failed actuator on an existing Drayton motorised valve. The two springs in the old actuator (which I assume are there to hold the valve in the set position) were both rattling around loose in the casing as the pegs retaining one end of each spring had broken off. These pegs are plastic, moulded as part of the plastic casing, and evidently had grown brittle with age (speeded up by the warm atmosphere next to the hot water tank) and had broken off. Making these pegs from plastic seems to me to be faulty design, and certain to fail in time. Surely they should be steel for a durable design - can't tell if the new one is the same, but it looks identical from the outside. That said, the actuator does what it's supposed to when new, but given its limited durability must score low in all categories. I actually bought the complete valve plus actuator (item 81844), which was cheaper than the actuator alone, and discarded the valve, but this review relates to the actuator alone.

MA-V322C 3 port

Would your Drayton be a straight swap for my old MA-V322C 3 port diverter valve with mid position.

My heating sometimes goes off.

My heating sometimes goes off when the water heating goes off on the timer but should stay on. If i shake the actuator it comes on. Does this mean the actuator needs replacing?
Asked by: Squibs1948
More than likely. We had the same symptoms and replacement rectified the problem.
