Nice part
Had to get one of these after my dog brought a red wire into the house. Uggh. Comes with long red wires. Turn off water at street, cut/disconnect old wiring, spin off solenoid, spin on solenoid, wire up, turn on water. Easy. Works like a charm.

Simple Solution
It’s a no brainer. I have a Hunter system and this solenoid screwed right back in and Zone was up and working in less than 5 minutes.

Steady on May 7, 2015
does the solenoid come apart to change o ring ?
A shopper on May 8, 2014
BEST ANSWER: You can remove the solenoid by unscrewing it from the valve body, The O-ring is located around the threads, simply remove the Oring and replace it with the replacemant one
if when i started my system this spring and one solenoid was buzzing does this indicate its bad? it seems that zone will not turn off
Duck S on May 18, 2012
BEST ANSWER: I have had the same problem; certain zone(s) getting stuck on. And yes, replacing the solenoid fixed the problem. I now have a few extra in my inventory for a quick fix, if necessary next spring.
are all hunter solenoids 24V?
A shopper on May 11, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Yes. All irrigation controllers are AC powered and a transformer steps down 115VAC to 24VAC to power the solenoids..You can easily verify using a multimeter on ACV range to measure it. Likewise you can check the controller operation one zone at a time. No meter = guessing. Best $20 you can spend to maintain it yourself.

Good Luck,
I have three zone that are running all the time. I have replaced the diaphragms and the solenoids. What else can I do? The solenoids have 1329 on the top and 5979480 on the new ones and the valve is an HPV valve.
John F on Jul 8, 2014
BEST ANSWER: You likely have a wiring problem , the wires are spliced together on the common side or coating is off somewhere and one signal runs them all.
We have a hunter pro C system need solonoid which one do we need ? thank you
A shopper on May 10, 2018
My PGV valve doesn't open from the controller. I can manually open the valve by turning the solenoid a quarter turn. Does the solenoid need to be replaced?
A shopper on Jul 7, 2013
BEST ANSWER: You could have a bad solenoid, bad controller or a short or open in the electrical line to the solenoid.

Just went through this. Here is what I did while I was waiting on the valves to be shipped to me.

I checked the water flow by turning the valve as you said. One of mine 2 problems flowed water, the other one didn't. I then turned off the water to the system and ran the system through a test cycle. With a voltmeter I measured the voltage at the contact on the controller as it cycled through my 7 stations. I had voltage on all 7 contacts. I did find a wire had worked loose under the contact so I tightened it.

I turned the water back on to the system and 6 of the 7 now worked thru 2 complete cycles and then both of my problems failed again.

My shipment arrived and I had ordered 3 solenoids and 3 diaphragms. Since I had voltage at the controller I took the chance it was the diaphragms and replaced both of them. My system has been working without any problems since. So I had a loose wire and and 2 plugged diaphragms instead of a solenoid problem.

I have a couple of sprinkler heads, 3 solenoids, and will order some more diaphragms so I have 7 of them on hand. You see, I spoke to a friend of mine who sets these up for a living. He said the diaphragms will go out or become plugged every 5 years or so. The solenoids go out less often and the heads can go out or be damaged anytime. I catch the parts on sale out of season or get a coupon to stock them up and then I am prepared when a problem hits.
Do you get a normaly open solenoid ?
dries K on Jun 12, 2012
BEST ANSWER: I purchased Hunter 60-6800 Replacement solenoids to replace faulty ones in my Hunter PGV valves, which were controlled by a Hunter Pro-C controller. When working correctly, the deenergized solenoids result in the valves being closed. When the solenoids are energized by the controller with a 24v AC source, the valves open and stay open as long as the solenoids are energized. How the energized solenoids open the valves is a little complicated and I'm not sure I completely understand that whole process. Replacing the solenoids did fix a number of my problems. The controller and valves can also fail by various mechanisms and require repair or replacement. I have replaced components in both the controller and the valves. And of course, the sprinkler heads can fail and need replacement. Sprinkler systems are great when they are working correctly, but do require some maintenance.
I have Hunter sprinkler system. I broke one solenoid and I can't find one as I've looked through the list. here is what I have. Hunter 24VAC solenoid and on the top, an arrow to the left is for off, an arrow to the right is for on. in between 1/4 turn with #0216.
How can I find a replacement solenoid? Thank you.
Paul R on Jun 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I'm sorry. I don't feel qualified to answer your question. It would be best answered by calling the warehouse 800 customer free line.
how do I replace the solenoid?
jon t on Aug 25, 2012
BEST ANSWER: I am not sure of the number 60-6800, but if it looks like the photo…this is what I did. 1) Trace the wires on top of the old solenoid—they may be taped or have a wire nut—remove these wires and be careful not to displace other wires that may be there—remember where they came from (if color coded remember which is which). 2) unscrew (counter clockwise) the solenoid from the value (usually a ¼ turn)—do not allow dirt, or dirty water to fall in the value. 3) screw in the new solenoid hand tight being careful not to cross thread it (you can check it with a tool very lightly to assure it is in)—replace the wires from the new solenoid from where they came from. 4) seal the wires with tape or a wire nut (add wire grease if you have it. You are done. NOTE: I am not a professional and this is simply what I did. Not responsible for any damage.
my hunter solenoid makes a clicking sound and will not turn on?
Ernie N on May 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: When that happened to me, I had to replace the diaphragm. Works now.
one sprinkler head in a zone has a slow drip. it is a low drainage area but it is continuous. is it the solenoid or the diaphragm? it is a hunter system.
William M on May 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I had a similar situation with the lowest head in a zone continually leaking. In my case when I took out the diaphragm I could some minor cracks and really worn. So I replaced it and it now works great.
were is the 1/4 turn located,I see then-off arrows, nothing seems to turn ?
charlie on May 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'm, not sure I understand the question. If you're asking about the solenoid itself, it unscrews from the top of the valve, but it takes several turns. If you're asking about a control valve that shuts the water off at the source, trace the pipe that comes out of the inlet side of the valve (marked by a small arrow pointing into the valve) back and somewhere there should be a manual valve with a handle, that when turned one quarter turn, shuts off the water supply. You must turn off the water supply before removing the old solenoid. If I've misunderstood the question, please clarify for me.
I have a broken solenoid valve for hunters which has the following oni t:

Is Hunter 60-6800 replacement vale the right one?

shiva on May 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hunter replacement solenoid 60-6800 fits just about all the Hunter valves and should work fine.Thanks, Ben
need a hunter 24 vac solenoid no. 6086042. can this work?
A shopper on May 8, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I replaced the solenoid quick to install had no problems. Started working great and one year later still working. Good choice, regards
where is it located, can I replace it without wiring the inside box,is it an easy fix?
A shopper on Jul 5, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is an easy fix.
It is located inside the valve box (usually green, round plastic close to the area that is watered). It is the top most part of the valve. Make sure the clock (controller) is turned to off. Locate the valve box. Remove the water protector that holds the wire, remove the wire nut. Unscrew the solenoid from the top of the valve. Screw the new solenoid on. Reconnect the wires with nuts (It does not matter which wire goes to the white wire or the red wire, they are interchangeable). Replace the water protector silicone tube with new ones.Test.
Is this the unit that says on top "1/4 turn off and on"?
A shopper on Aug 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, IF your system is set up without a master valve that also has to open. If you have Hunter valves this is what will turn them on/off. You can manually open the valve with a quarter turn to check the heads.
does solenoid 60-6800 replace 5086042 24 vac 0532 ?
A shopper on May 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes it should. I worked on a golfcourse for quite a few years, these fit into pretty much every hunter head, as well as block valves and the older Legacy heads (Now defunkt). Just be sure to keep any plastic threaded adapters that were included with the unit (If it had any).
I have hunter PG jar top valves in a seven year old system. While away, #2 zone ran for approx. 3hrs (set for 20min.). I found the valve box completely filled with water. After removing the water from the valve box, I found #2 valve was dripping only when activated and made a suction sound and took longer to shut off than the other valves. Do I need to replace the diaphragm only, the diaphragm and solenoid, or replace the whole valve? Thanks!
Jim P on Oct 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Open the valve and examine the seat where the diaphragm seals to close. Rub your finger around the seat and feel for any dents or rough edges. Make sure there is no foreign debris in the body-flush it if necessary. If neither issue is present then buy a new valve and replace everything except the body. If the seat is malformed then the replace the entire valve.
I have a Rainbird irrigation system in which the solenoids look exactly like the Hunter solenoid. Will a Hunter solenoid work with a Rainbird 24VAC controller?
mike f on Oct 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes. 24volt controllers will work for all standard 24volt valves no matter what brand solenoid valves. Hunter solenoids will not work on Rainbird valves, though. (A solenoid is just the part that has wires coming out…it is one part of a solenoid valve)
I need a 24v solenoid for a hunter valve. The # is 6086042. Is this the right solenoid?
A shopper on Apr 1, 2012
BEST ANSWER: That is what I order for my Hunter PGV valves. The Sprinkler Warehouse number actually consist of the Solonoid, o-ring, and seat. Be sure to have the water off before unscrewing the old solenoid and use a good damp location rated wire nut for connection of wires.
Is there any 12 volt solenoid for irrigation valve?
Nghia N on Jul 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Sorry I do not know the answer.
Is the 606800 and or the 434100 compatible with the 5979482 ?
Luciano A on Jul 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: That is the correct solenoid.
Need a replacement solenoid valve for Hunter SRV 606800 but see that the 606800 as presently offered has a different seal design. So, will the new 606800 be compatible with the older 606800?
A shopper on Oct 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Do not know. I purchased the solenoid for a new valve style
thomas s on Jun 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It may not be a solenoid problem, it could be the valve. I assume you have more than one valve on the supply header for the sprinkler system. I made sure which valve was not opening then removed the valve and installed a valve from a system I knew was working. Same process to check the solenoid operation.
My problem was the valve put I wanted a spare solenoid on hand.
Hope this helped.
how to wire replacement solenoid?
A shopper on Jun 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: there are two wires. one wire goes to a wire from the timer, the other is a ground and is with a group of wires from all the other solenoids.
I have seven zones all the zones work electronically except zone six. It is programmed for twenty minutes. The other day I noticed it went on for a few minutes then shut off. When I checked the programmable it showed fourteen minutes remaining with no water going to the heads. I was able to open the zone manually by turning the screw counterclockwise but unable to turn it on electronically on single station program mode. Should I change the solenoid?
Robert D on May 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hey Robert,
Have you confirmed voltage at that solenoid first? Sometimes the wires are corroded at the connection. If you are reading voltage then i would say it is probably the solenoid. Clean out any foreign material at the seat when replacing the old solenoid.
Hope this helps.
(1) of my zones is going on when not scheduled, (1) is going off after (2) minutes by itself, even though it is set for 15 minutes. Is it the solenoid ?
A shopper on May 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Check your controller carefully -- sounds like you have a second program running in the background. The behavior you describe is unlikely to be a solenoid. What you could do is put a voltmeter on the valve wiring (or on the controller) to see if the action of the solenoid matches the voltage -- that would for sure point to a rogue program in the controller.
I have a six zone system. No. 6 runs constant, while others go thru the normal cycle. What is causing #6 to run all the time?
Lee M on Jul 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The solenoid on that particular valve may not be screwed on tightly or the Diaphragm may be clogged., if that isnt the case go back to the controller and see if the controller is defective, try switch no. 6 with another terminal and see if it not running .
I need the entire valve. It is leaking water. do you care the Humter Heavy duty square valve?
Stacey M on Jun 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: First see if it needs to be tightened down first , if it still leaks find out why its leaking , if its cracked , if the body (lower part ) is in good shape , just get the exact replacement and replace just the top portion of the valve.
