Repairing a valve

26 Jan, 2014


The valves I bought are stainless steel, but at $50 each leave something to be desired in the quality department.  This valve was killed by putting 15v into it as the case said 9-24v on it.  Opening the valve revealed not only that the PCB was labelled 3-12v, but that the PCB layout was incorrect and rather than redo the PCB, they’d manually wired the ill fated component in.

The new board is on the right and appears to be of better quality.
