Sprinkler System problem

Sprinkler control box signals "Fuse" when one of the stations turns on. This one station shuts the entire system down. I have shut that station off and the rest of the stations run fine. I suspect a bad solenoid, but I'm not sure. Can I replace just the solenoid or do I have to replace the entire unit?

You can just change the solenoid if that's the problem.
Try disconnecting one of the wires from the solenoid in question and turn that zone on again with the controller.
Do you still get the fuse warning? If not it's the solenoid. If so the wiring has a short on that zone.
