E-60 C coil

    We have two Meyers E-60 pumps and both have had angle sticking problems. In both cases the coil has been stuck fast to the valve spool when we tried to remove it. I'm looking for possible causes for this problem. Test light indicates that switching works properly: coil is energized for right angle only.
    Any ideas?

    if you can not get the solenoid off the valve(have to pry it off) the valve is bad. It swells up and you can not remove the solenoid from it.

    Thanks for the tip, it makes good sense. Do you think the valves are getting too much pressure due to crossover relief valve malfunction?

    If it's damaged or improperly adjusted definitely. But the CO valves on the Meyer pumps have been inadequate for their duty's (protecting the system) for years so swelling a C valve stem isn't at all uncommon even with a "gentle" operator as it isn't usually the remembered hard hit that takes them out, it's all the light hits that over a period of time eventually swell the stem to the point that the valve ceases functioning.
