Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Electric head valve stays open
Hi Fohi,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I think this is quite a common occurrence. On my 54 I had the same problem and now carry several extra spare solenoid valves. They are easy and quick to change and located behind the velcro’d panel behind the wc itself.
The trick is to carry the spare valves. If it is OK now, just keep using it. It is probably the lack of use that caused it to be stuck open. I did try stripping down the valve but it then dribbled a bit, rather than close 100% so I recommend just changing them and buying at least two or three extra.
