TORO Flo Pro 3 lead silenoid, replaceing with 2 wire.

gabeokc001July 17, 2006

I have a leaky Toro Flo Pro sprinkler valve. I have it identified as the silenoud and I have bought a 24volt replacement silenoid. BUT my im not sure exaclty how to wire the replacement. Printed on the old silenoid are 2 settings..? 180mah = IN-RUSH 220mah HOLDING. I think that is right, i dont have the old one in front of me. But the unit has three wires going into the valve silenoid. Looks like a series setup. The white wire "COMMON" continues on and the yellow wire terminates in the silenoid. So should i just conect the two white COMMON wires together with one of the replacement silenoid wires and then the yellow wire to the other?

I wanted to make sure i wasnt wiring the replacement wrong and then cause an electrical issue with another valve somewhere else in the yard.

Gabe,
You're on the right track. Hook one of the leads from the solenoid to the 2 white wires and hook the other lead from the solenoid to the yellow wire.
