I turned my gas bottle off this afternoon whilst the solonoid was switched on. Ever since when ever I turn the gas bottle on gas spews out the overload release aswell as into the tank. No amount of nothing seems to do anything to make it behave as it is supposed to... To me this sounds like my brand new solonoid is stuffed

What do you think?

Try turning the power to the solonoid OFF. If this doesn't work then yes you may have a duff solonoid.

They way they work is :

Power ON = OPEN
Power OFF = CLOSED

Yeah its stuffed... Thanks for the reply. Going to try to keep the HC alive until I get a replacement... How long do you think I have before it melts?
