Irritrol valve solenoids

Hi all!
I inheirited an irritrol irrigation system for my house and have a few questions about it.
When I turn the solenoids manually to the "on" position, my sprinklers and drips have great pressure and run merrily. However, when the timer/comtroller turns them on, the pressure is dismal. My qustion is, do the solenoids wear out and only open marginally?? If so, can they be replaced easily (looks easy) AND can this be done without shutting off the electricity or does 110 volts course through these wires and pose the risk of frying me?
Thanks for your help!!
