Hi Steve,

Mine measure 23.3 V. I use the same solenoid part number as Dave. I would check the part between the solenoids and the 33V power supply as well as the 33 V power supply.

They work until the plastic bits fail. I have never had the solenoid
fail. I've been using the same part# for over 20 yrs. It is a 24VDC
normally closed valve. I haven't ventured out to find an alternative
that uses PEEK. I know they exist, I just use the PN above since I know
it works.

Hope this helps.
