Zone not working

I have Irritrol Zone Valves. One of my zones is not coming on. When I turn on the zone from the controller, I hear a clacking sound at the valve. It sounds like I have power, but no water is coming out of the heads. I turned the valve on manually and I do get water. I tried replacing the solenoid and still nothing. Same clacking sound and also sounds like thumping sound, but no water.
Are the valves bad?? Should I just replace the valve???

Your valve may need a new diaphragm assembly.

It sounds like the controller to me. Try moving the wire to another slot that you know works. Does it still clack?
