  • Any ideas what would cause these solenoids to get “sticky”? We’ve using one of these with an Arduino board, and noticed that after continued use it doesn’t want to release. Running consecutively at 30V after about 50 times it started to have a problem.
    As we kept testing to see what the problem was, the “sticking” got worse, to the point where it would happen every time. We then tested another of the same type of solenoid on the same circuit and was working fine.
    Any ideas?

No public wish lists :(
