At one point I had much the same solenoid and signs. When I took it apart, I found there were three items in the moving parts section. Spring,plunger and a small "spacer" ? I found when I powered up, I got a click but the plunger was not opening the solenoid. Possible the click was the spacer moving? Don't know. But to get it working for a bit longer, I gently stretched the spring and lubed it all with some Vasoline. Possibly it is worth a try? If it is not working there is no fear of breaking it!
This is one of the main faults of this type of solenoid that uses a sliding part to open and close. They just have lots of ways to get stuck. I far prefer the Clippard Mouse as it doesn't have the slider to stick.
