Thanks for the help all. I got it working with my old solenoid from a Hunter HPV. It ended up working only when electronically activated, not when manually turned.

I have had this happen before.

I have had success with gently loosening the solenoid just a hair. Not cracked open enough to open the valve or cause a leak.

Give it a try

Something blocking the intake? Do the other valves work?

Maybe the shut off valve broke in the off position.

No flow control either. It's the valve in the image at the top of this page

Does it have flow control?

I don't think that's the case. It's an angle valve. Water supply comes up from underneath, line to sprinklers is horizontal.

Is the valve installed backwards?

New Hunter PGV valve won't open

Hi all,

I recently replaced a Hunter HPV valve with a Hunter PGV and the valve won't open.

I've tried manually turning the solenoid and turning the bleed screw. Water will come out from the bleed screw/solenoid when turned far enough, but the sprinklers don't come on. I've already taken the top of the valve off and pressed a pin through the small hole below the solenoid.

Any ideas why this valve won't open?
