New Aprilaire Solenoid Valve Not Working Properly

I just replaced our humidifier solenoid valve based on our plumbers recommendation, but the new one doesn't work properly. It will operate properly when the valve has no or very water pressure coming in. I basically have to turn the water flow coming out of the saddle valve down to a trickle.

When I test the voltage on my transformer I get 24v, but when I wire the solenoid to it, it only reads 16v. I've tried bypassing the humidistat as well, but still get the same results.

It appears to be the correct the solenoid for my model (440). And the specs on the label say it puts out 24V. Is this new solenoid valve bad also?

Any suggestions?
