Hunter Valve getting power but not turning on

Hi, I have a hunter valve that is getting power but not turning on. I thought it was the solenoid but I replaced that with a new one today and still nothing. I can open it manually just fine - no clogs and not stuck. I know it is getting power because I can hear it in the solenoid and I switched up the wires from another valve that worked fine and it still does not work. Can somebody help? Do I need to replace the whole valve?

You pretty much eliminated the solenoid and the wiring as the cause so,
I'd stick a new diaphragm in there and see what happens. You could borrow one from a valve that works before you buy one.

You could also have a clogged bleed port. Try taking a thin wire and fishing it down the hole that is right under where the diaphragm sits.
