Default Impco Fl-50046-008 Gas Shutoff Valve Parts

Last week I fried the solenoid coil on my Impco Fl-50046-008 gas shut off valve. I posted the story on the forum. I thought I could just buy a replacement coil, but my searches for parts got me nowhere. It appears I may have to buy the entire valve which cost ~$80.00.

Does anyone know where I can specifically buy only the coil?

Thanks,

Can you get warranty on the valve? Seems like it failed prematurely to me. Cheers Dan

I thought I had the receipt, but I can't find it. I know I got it... It will turn up 10 years from now when I'm not looking for it.

I'm still curious where you bought that...

Call these guys - they might have the coil:

If I can find my receipt I would be glad to share that information with you. Anyway, I sent a message to Carb Turbo (see picture below). If I do not hear back from them by Friday I will call directly. It is too late to call now.

Thanks,

Cool. I'm especially curious, because I've bought a bunch of these from Carb and Turbo over the years. Never had one burn up, but they do run hot. So if your batt voltage was on the high side, I could see this happening. That, or you somehow got a Chinese clone - your solenoid does look a little different from mine...

Or, mine are on the verge of pulling a magniciter-like smoke out...
