Why does the valve not close?
Answer: Valve issues: Check if there is dirt in the main orifice. Check for outside damage of the valve – e.g. has it been dropped? (Bent armature tube) Check if the equalizing orifice connection is blocked because of dirt or deposits. - Check pilot filter or pilot drillings. - Armature is stuck in the armature tube. Check if the diaphragm function is limited - Because of wear or swelling (e.g. EPDM seal exposed to oil) Coils issues (only NO versions): No voltage on coil - Lift coil slightly and note whether it offers resistance. - Note: Never remove a coil with voltage applied - it might burn out. Incorrect voltage/frequency - Check to make sure that coil data is the same as the installation data. Measure the operating voltage at the coil. - Permissible voltage variation: - V±10% for dual frequency; dc and NO applications - +10% / -15% for ac on single frequency voltages - If necessary, replace coil with correct version. Coil burnt out - Why is the coil burnt? - Differential pressure too high (valve will not open and thereby consume too much power) - Too high ambient or media temperature, outside of specifications. - Moisture in the coil (the coil IP rating does not fit the application)
Can the Danfoss solenoid valves operate by themselves or do I need to buy other things?
Answer: All solenoid valves require electrical coils to work. The type of coil we recommend with the valve depends on your voltage requirements and other criteria, and the options can be seen the corresponding technical brochure. We also offer valves with coil assembled. Also often required is a cable plug to fit onto the coil and is for wiring up the electrics to the valve. Often with solenoid valves we recommend a filter, preferably a type with a removable element which can be cleaned. We would also recommend a check valve if the solenoid will experience back pressure. All Industrial Danfoss standard solenoid valves have female thread connections.
What IP ratings do the valves have?
Answer: IP ratings apply to the cable plug which is fitted onto the solenoid coil. Danfoss can supply cable plugs and coils to IP00 (no plug), IP20 (plastic protective cap), IP43 (only steam coils), IP65 (standard DIN plug) or IP67 (standard Danfoss terminalbox). The IP rating is the plug's protection against mechanical and moisture penetration. The first number relates to mechanical penetration and the second number is the moisture penetration - the higher the number, the greater the protection. Our IP67 coils can withstand submersion under water at a depth of 1 m for a period of 1/2 hour.
Why does the solenoid valve not open?
Answer: Coils issues: • No voltage on coil - Check whether valve is de-energized open or closed (NO or NC): Use a magnetic detector. - Lift coil slightly and note whether it offers resistance. - Note: Never remove a coil with voltage applied - it might burn out. • No power to the coil (NC version) - check relay contacts, check lead connections and check fuses. • Incorrect voltage/frequency - Check to make sure that coil data is the same as the installation data. Measure the operating voltage at the coil. - Permissible voltage variation: - V±10% for dual frequency; dc and NO applications - +10% / -15% for ac on single frequency voltages - If necessary, replace coil with correct version. • Coil burnt out - Why is the coil burnt? - Differential pressure too high (valve will not open and thereby take a too high consumption of power) - Too high ambient or media temperature, outside of specifications. - Moisture in the coil (the coil IP rating does not fit the application) Valve issues: • Check for outside damage of the valve – e.g. has it been dropped? (bend armature tube) • Pilot connection blocked because of dirt or deposits. - Check the equalizing orifice - Eventually pilot filter or pilot drillings - Armature is stocked in the armature tube • The diaphragm function is limited - Because of wear out or swelling (EPDM exposed to oil)
Why does the solenoid valve sound wrong (humming)?
Answer: The main reason is likely dirt or wear in the actuator system; this applies only for ac voltage systems.
How does a higher power rating specified coil influence the MOPD (Max. Opening Pressure Differential)?
Answer: In general a higher power rating on a specific coil type will lift the MOPD. Please download our technical brochure to compare different coil types MOPD.
I have a coil here - which valve can I use?
Answer: As long as the coil is a Danfoss solenoid valve coil, you can use any valve which is suitable for your application. Danfoss have two main coil systems: Type A, a compact 9 mm coil system, usually black, which fits all valves with A as the 6th letter of the designation, e.g. EV220A. Type B coils, 13.5 mm, are usually blue in colour and fit all valves with B as the 6th designation, e.g. EV220B. For valve and coil selection, please see our internet product catalogue. If you require help in valve selection please contact us.
Can you supply valve coils for hazardous areas?
Answer: Yes, Danfoss is able to supply coils to explosive risk areas (Eex coils) and coils for humid environments - IP67 rated coils.
I need a spare part for my product. Do you have that?
Answer: Please see the relevant accessories sections in our internet product catalogue, which will list all available spare part options for your market.
Why does the coil get very hot?
Answer: Coils on solenoid valves can be relative hot when energized continuously, without any problems. If the coil over time has a malfunction or even starts to melt or burn, there is a technical problem that must be solved. Please check the application conditions like ambient/medium temperature and coil enclosure.
Where can I find approvals and certificates for Danfoss products? E.g. do you have a PED certificate for KP7W?

Do you have sparepart kits for the EV valves?
Answer: Yes we have spare part kits for every EV type solenoid valve. To select the proper kit, you will need the valve code number - or specifications like type, seal material, orifice diameter and the function type, NO or NC. Please see our internet catalogue for options.
Do you have a Danfoss solenoid valve with code number 018F7251?
Answer: This reference is not for a valve, but for a coil. To specify the correct solenoid valve, please see our internet catalogue.
What is the difference between the EV220A and EV220B solenoid valves?
Answer: The EV220A valve is a valve with a compact actuator and coil system, suiting many applications with known specifications. The EV220B valve offers more flexibility and an even better performance.
Is it possible to order EV225B solenoid steam valves without coil?
Answer: Yes, you just add the appendix 99 to the valve code number, and buy the coil separately.
I would like to energize my solenoid valve for a short time with a controlled sequence - what could I do?
Answer: You can use our universal electronic timer, type ET20M, which you can set to an interval between 0 and 45 minutes, and the on-time of 0-15 seconds.
Is it possible to order only the coil for Danfoss solenoid steam valves?
Answer: Yes, please see our internet catalogue. As an example you can choose 032K1436xx (AC version) or 032K140902 (DC version).
My solenoid valve or coil is making a unpleasant noise, what could I do to fix it?
Answer: It could be a technical problem that you should check first of all - dirt or wear. This problem can be avoided by installing a filter before the valve. If there is no problem besides the noise, we recommend that you buy a hum-free coil type BN available for 220-230V AC voltage to get a completely noise-free operation.
How do I see if the coil of the valve is energized?
Answer: You can use our power indicator connector with an built-in LED (light). When the LED lights up, power is connected to the coil.
