Gilbarco 300 valve coil melt on "B" sides

Post by ZMiller » Thu Apr 16, 2020 11:07 pm

And while we are at it I have two Gilbarco 300 blenders where the control valve coils short circuited and melted into what looks like two lumps of coal on two dispensers sides B only.
Before I throw another coil set on I'm wondering if the B side of board(s) maybe shorted from a lightning strike. Every thing else works through reset/enable when any grade select is made with the result being a slow count at a trickle flow.

I'd replace the hydraulic interface board before I'd burn up anymore coils.

Thanks I was thinking that best as well.

My Encore 300 has a trickle flow as well after the customer lets go of the handle on my REG grade. What is this part called? the Proportional Valve or the digital control valve that may need replacing?
