    I am a bit unsure of what he is trying to show us but whatever it is he can manually open and close swirl valves by hand

    Seriously though, I need to really get hold of a failed unit and see if I can design a repair kit for it

    My valves are fine, the solenoid failed internally though. Nothing you can do about that, it's just a crappy part from VX.
