An Irritrol solenoid will be the replacement

Signature acquired Nelson back in 2008. The most common solenoid replacement listed, the 7962, is for the 7900 and 9000 series. It's also the only one I can find listed, which narrows the options. Without knowing for sure which valve you have it is a best guess/gamble.

Older Nelson valves of that series had a separate piece that combined with a 'standard' 3/4-20 thread solenoid to make what is sold as a single piece today - why the change, I don't know.

I'm pretty sure he says the controller is a Nelson but he doesn't know what make the valve is.
Here's the Irritrol solenoid Boots refered to.

What other solenoid will work for 7962 Replacement Solenoid Nelson

I have Nelson value 9000 ? Globe not sure of the exact number 9001 - 9015 all the same solenoid, one solenoid not doing its job (after 20 years!), need 7962 solenoid but every where it's BACKORDERED. There has to be a replacement solenoid that fits correctly! Hate to change out a value that works fine manually!!!! Trying to keep the lawn green!

You could take the solenoid off of this, valve?

I'd make sure it's the solenoid causing the problem before buying. Maybe swap out a solenoid from a valve you know works.
