Propane Tank Valve Solenoid

The propane to the stove has stopped flowing. SMB-West installed an electric valve at the tank controlled by a rocker switch on the cabinet under the stove. I've replaced the relay inside the cabinet under the stove, which didn't change things. All the wiring looks good and is tight under the stove.

The under the floor wiring to the tank valve looks good.

I do not feel any action of the solenoid at the tank when the switch inside is activated. There isn't any magnetism detected at the solenoid either when the switch is activated.

I suspect the solenoid has failed. We were recently on some very rough and bumpy roads for several days.

Could this be what I need?

If so, where to buy and how to change out?

Convince yourself it's the solenoid by checking for 12V right at the solenoid when the switch is on...assuming you have a voltmeter....

You could also tap the solenoid with the handle of a screwdriver a few times with the power on and see if that makes it click...
