        When you replace the motor assembly, be sure to re-orient the contact block (where the connectors are located) by pushing it toward the back of the actuator, and tightening the screws. I'm always surprised how loose some of them are.

        The way this is set up is that almost as soon as the motor shaft extends, it cuts out its own power supply. Then it retracts, causing its power to be re-established. It continues to cycle like that (on-off-on-off) until the wall thermostat stops calling for heat.

        Can anyone explain to me why they designed it this way?

        A necessary part to keep heating system zones operational, but they do not last as long as I would like before failing. The heat motor is easy to change, and less expensive, relatively, than changing the whole control valve assembly.

              I have been using Bell & Gossett products like this for 27 years and it's nice to be able to purchase on line and get it quickly. Saves a lot of money being able to replace just the heat motor and not the whole unit. Great price for a good product.

                    This is a replacement part goes in the Bell & Gossett zone valve. Not real happy with how long they last. It's easy to do but,.....
                    Also your S & H is really high $$$$$

                                      Replacing the motor assembly rather than the entire valve is so much less expensive and this is the best place to buy. Cannot say anything negative about the product or the company.

                                                                        There is no foolproof way to tell, but there are three things that could tell if the heat motor is bad.
                                                                        1. If there is wax that came out of the heat motor. This means the seal is shot and the wax has leaked out and the unit needs to be replaces.
                                                                        2. If there is discoloration on the back (the one opposite the push rod) indicated a high temperature burn-out.
                                                                        3. If the heat motor is cold even though there is electricity going to the unit (thermostat is calling for heat).
                                                                        The heat motors will eventually go on these units. A more common problem is pitting of the contacts of the spring switches, preventing the electricity from activating the heat motor in the first place. These contacts can be cleaned with 400 grit emory paper and the tension on the springs checked. It is a pain to do and involved disassembly of the switch.
                                                                        After dealing with this for over ten years, I switched over to the Honeywell valves. The Control-valve units became harder and harder keep going. I have a seven zone valve system, so the switch-over was costly but worth it. We go away for several weeks at a time during the winter, and I didn't want to worry about a loss of heat.
                                                                        Phil Sanzone

Sometimes a blackish plastic looking material will form at the smaller end. This also indicates overheating and burnout. I've found that you must check the points on the controller for proper function. The points should make the controller cycle between on and off. If the motor stays on, It will surely burn out. I hope this helps.
