This was a very easy item to replace. Simply removed the old one, and copied the wiring of the previous value that had served us since 2000.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Johnterry Straightforward replacement
My boiler was getting major feedback on the gas solenoid valve causing lengthy periods of buzzing. I established that the cause was the mid position valve not operating properly. I ordered a replacement online and collected it within an hour. The removal and fitting of the new valve is an absolute doddle. Care should be taken to correctly wire the unit which I did one cable at a time replacing like for like colour coding. I then fired up the boiler and problem solved. No more feedback. By the way the old valve was fitted in 2007. Not bad service.

I've been through 3 of these, each lasting less than 24 months. Ok when they work but that usually isn't for long.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by TiptreeJam2 A quick fix
My gas boiler was sometimes continuing to remain on even with the timer controls off and the hot water was getting extra hot. Research online showed the likely culprit to be the 3 way valve. The wet side was fine as the valve could be turned the 45 degrees with ease. The actuator seemed stiff. Screwfix was first choice for a replacement in a hurry. A quick job to fit the new actuator after noting where the coloured wires went. Job done and everything working fine now. Too early to say how reliable it will be hence 3 * for reliability.
