Toro Valve not working

I just installed a system in my yard. It is a toro ezflow valve with 6 rainbird rotors on it operating off of a submersible pump. The valve does not operate. I have taken it apart and flushed it out, as per toro's website. I have the manual control almost totally off. When i try to turn on that zone, the rotor sometimes slowly pops up with a little water squirting out. I have tried different wires and different locations in the timer to rule out problems with each. My question are 1) is there any other way to flush it out other than just taking in apart and turning on the water and 2) i got this valve from the irrigation guy who pulled the pipe and installed the well, can i use the valve parts from the home depot and just drop them into the existing body without taking it off the manifold? Any help would be greatly appreciated, as i took my free time over the last week to install everything and now i still have to manually water my lawn in that zone.

Have you tried opening it manually but doing a 1/4 turn on the solenoid? You could have a fective valve or solenoid.

I have opened it manually and flushed it out. I think i will just buy a new one and replace the top.

Thats your best bet. Just replace the guts. No need to remove the entire valve
