Subject: astra gap solenoid valve
 

Hey, I have an astra gap.. that I've had for a few years with no issues.. the other day I saw a little smoke, and the machine stopped pumping through the filter.  Instead it just pumps into the pan below the filter head.  I pulled it apart, and could see that the coil on the solenoid valve is a bit charred and realize that I need to replace it.

I went on line and could not find a parts manual for this machine..(don't know what year it is).  I found parts suppliers but not with the exact matching part.  Mine has a Sirai Z530A  110v/120v coil and the only on line match for that part number shows a 24v.  Obviously incorrect.  I'm wondering if I can replace it with a Lucifer or Parker solenoid valve.  It looks like the same assembly and screw pattern.  Has anyone dealt with this issue, or have any more information??
