Leaking plastic water solenoid valve

by chriswhitney on Thu Jun 13, 2019 2:44 pm

Greetings. I recently purchased 12 plastic water solenoid valves (p/n 997) and have been generally satisfied with them. In testing the system that I am building, I found that one of the valves allows water to pass through when it is unenergized (i.e. closed). It is only 1 of the 12 valves that I am having this issue with. I took the valve apart to make sure there was nothing stuck in there that may prevent the valve from closing all the way with no such luck. Are there any suggestions on how to properly fix this valve or to determine if it is faulty? Thank you!
