Hey Tim,

Welcome to the forum!!

If you were looking to replace a part in a commercial system I would try and track down some more details about the one already in there. Do you have any pictures or the size of the threads on each side?

This solenoid runs off of 12V and can handle up to 80 degrees C: https://core-electronics.com.au/brass-liquid-solenoid-valve-12v-1-2-npt.html

Hi Tim,

Cheers for the photo.

Since the solenoid is 240V you will need an electrician to change it. This one looks well outside Core’s range of parts being mainly todo with hobby and education electronics.

It might be worth seeing if a local technician can replace it.

Be very careful being around this, the circuitry to drive this can easily reach lethal voltages.

Is it the correct part? I’ll ask an electrician to do it. Much thanks :+1:t2: Tim

Hi Tim,

While I can’t speak for Liam, I’d say the chances of us having this part aren’t great, I can’t even recommend a replacement without a more intimate understanding of your application.

I’d suggest leaving this to an appliance repairer, or looking deeper into the internet for your specific part number, or at least the specifications of what it has to achieve.

Good luck with your search though!
