Default Solenoid problems

Hey Guys, I purchased a Milwaukee regulator with the solenoid and bubble counter. Needless to say many people said not to get it but it was the only option at the time financially. The solenoid seems to be broken, no clicking sound when plugged in or heat on the thing. Anyone know where I could get a good replacement solenoid? And can I take the power cord off my broken solenoid and use it with a new one if it does not come with a cord? I live in Hawaii which makes shipping expensive, anyone know local vendors here besides aquascape? Thanks for your help.

I would contact Milwaukee directly for a replacement.

Of course, you can also purchase your own solenoid if you are willing to do a bit of wiring/soldering.

You can take off the power cord from your current solenoid and use it on a new solenoid as well (again, some wiring/soldering).
