The motor whirs, but the position switch dosn't move.  I can move it by hand though....

I gave it a whack, but it's still not behaving.
 
I guess I'll have to take the head unit off and manipulate the valve by hand?
Why not just replace it? They're cheap enough and it's only a couple of compression joints and a bit of simple wiring. Just make sure you make a note of which wires go where.

Sounds simple in isolation. In reality it means water pissing everywhere and poor old Tigger's demise due to electrocution.  :)

At least it would be a quick end!  :y

And the Beemer will probably out live you M'lud!  :)

This should be suitable!  :)
Nine grand. You could probably get a plumber to do the job for you for that amount, what with living outside London.

At that price obviously a reputable supplier with 79.2% positive feedback on 14 sales. :o :o :o

Lord Opti would order a brace just to keep a spare one on the shelf, like he keeps the Signum as a backup car for his Indian made Oxford Ambassador. :P :P :P

I believe they still manufacture the Royal Enfield 500cc single. At least it can be fixed by the side of the road. :y

You do realise a pattern part will leak/break/both approx. 3 milliseconds after fitment,the system will go into meltdown,your house will blow up and you will die don't you? :D ;D ;D

At least it's only the electrical bit, so can't leak (anything other than electrons ;D) .. cheap 1/4 turn ball valves are nothing but a pain in the arris in my experience, they always manage to start weeping..
