Honeywell humidifier solenoid

The solenoid (32001639-002) on my Honeywell humidifier (he220 I think) appears to be malfunctioning. I can get it to click with the controller, but it doesn't stop the water flow. Sometimes it squeals a little, but water still flows. Sometimes water under pressure sprays out of the outlet side. Can I disassemble it and fix it somehow, or should I just buy a new one? They appear to be anywhere from $58 to $100+ online.

Is there an exploded picture anywhere of how it should be assembled?

One some solenoid you should be able to take apart and clean.. It maybe build up with lime, and it's not seating all the way.

Sounds high for a water solenoid valve Like jay said try to clean it if you can . They get a lime and calicium built up in the them there. Can try and go see what they have for it.
