    If I understand you, you'll have to replace the valve and you might as well replace the solenoid as well. Yes the female coupler is probably bad.

    Did you use pipe sealant on the threads?

    We have 1 old Meyer left in the fleet. We have broken the stud off the top of one of the cartridge valves a while ago, can't remember how long ago. Just slide the coil back over the valve, it will still work.

    We always replaced the couplers as a pair, both the male and female.

    Yup, just use some duct tape or other good stuff to hold it in place. As long as the magnet in the solenoid is good it will work fine.
