Q: assuming ACL Drayton(invensys) MA1/679~3 Mid-Position Motorised 3 Port Valve is direct replacement for existing acl life-style 679H340 30 LO 22mm do I need to replace Valve and actuator and what does W M H stand for on actator face?
A: You will need to replace both valve and actuator.
WMH stands for Water, Mid-Position and Heating. It indicates the position of the valve.
Q: Hi is a ma16793 a direct replacement for a bgmvsp-23.
A: Hi. As long your BGMVSP-23 is 22mm.
Q: I have a broken drayton ma1 but I dont see any other reference numbers on it . Its def a 3 port and clip on /off model. Is this the direct replacement and are these brand new or refurbished.

All our products are brand new.
Q: Hi, I have read that this is a direct replacement for Lifestyle 679H340-30L0.
1. Can I easily remove the old one (e.g. will system need draining, how many screws etc.);
2. Does the MA1 simply 'click' back in the place of the old one?
Regards and thanks.
A: You will need to drain the system, and then remove the 3 nuts connecting the pipes to the valve. The new valve will fit directly in place, the existing nuts will screw onto it. Be careful that a A/B sides matches the direction of your previous valve. The new head will then click onto the new valve. The wiring of the new head is exactly the same as the old one.
Q: I want to replace a acl Lifetyle Mid-position valve 22mm Ref 679H340 30L0 that has a aux micro switch. Does this have the switch as well
A: Yes it does.
Q: Re my last question, do I need a plumber and electrician or just an electrician?
A: Most plumbers will be happy to do the electrics as well. Look for someone who describes themselves as a "Heating Engineer"
Q: I have a lifestyle mid position valve with the number 679H 340 3OLO on it. Will this fit and is it easy to swap?, thanks
A: Yes it is the replacement.
The thread and gap in pipework is the same. The wiring is also the same. So it's a fairly simple swap.
Q: Does the Drayton MA1/679 3 mid position valve have similar wiring to the Honeywell V4073A1039, 3 way midposition valve?
A: Yes it is the same.
Q: Hello, will this replace a 280H314-22LO valve? Thank you.
A: I'm afraid not.
Q: Is the valve for the ACL Lifestyle 679H34O 2OLO the same as the valve for the MA1 in so much that the removable actuator will clip on top of an existing valve?
A: I'm afraid not, you will need to change the whole valve.
I've got a iflo mid position actuator that needs the valve replacing its a 3 way and 22mm would this be suitable?
A: Yes it would.
Q: I would like to mount the valve in a slightly different position. The head which is normally at 12:00 on the clock would be mounted at 3:00 on the clock.
Is this allowable and are there any problems associated with it.
Do you have a technical drawing showing the various mounting positions.
I look forward to your reply.
A: It must be mounted so any leaks run away from the electrical actuator. So 2:59 would be fine, but between 3:00 and 9:00 is not.
Q: I have a British Gas installed valve and actuator.
Actuator Part No BGMVSP-23.

[number on side: 380-1681]

Q: I have 679340-30LO which you say is a straight swap with MA1/679-3 but is this a replaceable type for the future. Or can I do a straight swap with ZA3/679-3 which is definitely a replaceable type?
A: Yes the MA1/679-3 is a replaceable type.
The ZA3/679-3 is not a suitable replacement for your existing valve.

A: They are the same except the MA1/679-3 has a replaceable head, but the old 679H340-30L0 had a non replaceable head.
Q: Would this valve replace drayton flowshare 2 plumbing not a problem, but is wiring exactly the same ie colours
A: Yes it is.
Q: I have a mv22m is the motorised valve above a direct replacement as I only want to change the electrical component not the whole valve
A: If there is a button on the side of your existing powerhead to remove the powerhead, then you can change just the powerhead. If it is the older model without the button, you will need to replace the whole valve.
Q: Hi I can't tell from the picture but does this valve have the 3 settings of H, M and W? I need this one not the newer 2 setting model.
A: Yes it does.

A: Yes it includes both parts
Q: Got one of these that was fitted in about 1990 or so. Now having problems with the actuator, do you sell just the actuator as a direct replacement or will I need to replace whole unit including valve?
Model number is ACL Lifestyle 679H340 30L0
A: Sorry to say you will need to replace the whole unit including valve.
Q: The valve I have was fitted in 1990 and is badged ACL Lifestyle Model 22mm 679H340 30L0 It has a lever on the bottom and a switch on the side 3 positions. I assume the ACL Drayton (Invensys) pictured on your site a direct replacement? I have photos of the old one if you need to see it. It has 3 pipes entering/leaving the valve.
regards and thanks
A: Yes it will be a direct replacement.
Q: how easy is it to remove my old ACL lifestyle mid position valve and replace with this?
A: As long as you are comfortable draining and refilling the system, it is very simple.
All the dimensions and threads are the same, so you can reuse the existing nuts. The wiring is also identical.
