If I'm reading this correctly it sounds like the water valve is bad, but then before that you said you replaced the water valve.


I wonder what the other technicians think about it...

Your welcome, I'm hoping another technician will chime in tonight with their thoughts on this problem.
Could you post the part number of the water valve you already replaced.

Disconnect the outlet of the primary valve and jump the L and V.  If it squirts water, you know it's good.
