Honeywell Zone Valve

I have a Honeywell Zone valve (model number V8053E1012) on my 10 year old furnace. It is sticking in the open position. It closes when I tap it with my fingers. Is this a problem with the motor or does the whole Zone Valve have to be replaced?

It could be either but I'd try a new motor first. Motors are a whole bunch cheaper & easier to replace than the whole valve. Even if it turns out to be the valve, keep the motor. Sooner or later you will likely need it.

BTW, are you sure the number isn't a V8043 not v8053?

Yes the number is V8043. Actually the whole number is V8043A1185. I can't find this same part number but I did find V8043E1012. Will this one work?

Sorry for the delay in responding but I couldn't get on the board last nite for some reason.

I could not find out anything at all about the existing zone valve. It seems to be an OEM part. Is the boiler, by any chance, a System 2000?

System 2000

If I remember correctly, they used a zone valve other than the normal 3.5 CV but unless the zone in question has a very high flow requirement the V8043E1012 will be fine. In fact, the power heads are interchangeable. I still suspect the problem to be just the motor.

You are most welcome. Glad I was right & you were able to save some time & money. I feel bad when I suggest something to a poster & my advice ends up being incorrect.
Should any other problems crop up around the house there is a forum on doityourself.com to cover it. Each is frequented by people willing to help.
