A quick and simple guide to troubleshooting your solenoid valve. The possible causes for your valve acting sluggish are listed below alongside instructions of how to resolve the issue.

  • Disassemble the valve, clean out any foreign matter. The plunger must be free to move without binding.
  • If a diaphragm design, check the diaphragm for tears and/or clogged or obstructed bleed hole or pilot orifice. Torn diaphragms must be replaced.
  • Check all springs. If broken, replace.
