Definitely the solenoid. I checked it with an ohm meter. The circut is open (infinite ohm reading). I did disassemble just to verify that it was not due to bad internal connection. In this case the problem is with the small internal motor. I did not try to open the motor. BTW, the plastic case that holds the assembly is heavy and securely glued. I had to use a band saw to cut it open at the seams. Even if I fixed the open circut, it will be a challenge to re-assemble.
