Valve Actuators

tonys_2009July 29, 2011

I have a question about my Jandy valve actuators. I know there is a way to disable the motor and manually move the valves. The manual says to unscrew the locking knob and then push down. I've never been able to get this to work. Is there a trick to it?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

IIRC, unscrew the locking knob almost all the way up and push it down, not the handle. Its a fairly strong spring so be careful not to push unevenly or the plastic threaded part will snap.
