Hi guys,

I am Thomas Yang, the product manager & engineer of T&X. We created this blog for people who are interested or have questions about the starter solenoid. From how does it work in a starter to starter solenoid troubleshooting, from how to repair it by yourself to manufacturing solution…


For T&X, the starter solenoid is not just a simple replacement part of a car starter motor, it’s also our core business.


We would do our best to help people understand the starter solenoid well, and help them solve their starter solenoid problem.

5 Practical Ways to Troubleshoot a Solenoid Valve

Solenoid valves are mechanical devices, which means they are bound to fail over time. When that happens, immediate action is required to fix the problem. Luckily, these devices only have a few components. Solenoids valves also use relatively simple working mechanisms. As a result, they’re easy to service. This article describes the ways to fix […]

5 Types of Solenoid Valve and their Working Principle

A solenoid valve controls the flow of fluid in a tube or duct. Different mechanisms are employed to control the media, which means a wide range of these valves to cater to the variations. In addition to the designs, these valves come with different operating mechanisms. Here, we take a look at the 5 types […]

Parts of a Solenoid Valve and their Functions

A solenoid valve is made up of different parts, each serving an essential function. Understanding these components can enhance your knowledge about how solenoid valves work. That, in turn, would help you to care for the valve better, or even service it. Solenoid valve designs, sizes, and working mechanisms vary across different valve types. However, […]

5 Common Solenoid Valve Problems

Solenoid valves are designed to be efficient and durable. But with moving parts, these devices are prone to breaking down at any time. Some, like the solenoid ball valve, require an actuator that further complicates the assembly. Reasons for faults vary depending on the type of solenoid valve and application. It can be an under […]

Solenoid Valve Applications: 13 Most Common Uses
