    Holding the valve in the MAN position will not fire the boiler but your water will get hot when your heating is on.

    The MAN position doesn't trigger the switch, the motor has to power it fully open for that to happen.

    Its much easier to put the lever in MAN than taking the actuator off surely.

    The hot water works when I manually open the valve but not when it is in the auto position. Thanks.

    This is the only way I can get hot water - when the valve is in the manual position. The problem is, it obviously switches the heating on as well. I would like the water/heat to work independently but I can't get the hot water to work in the auto position. I can hear a clicking sound from the Nest control box but the valve does nothing.
