I have a 1992 Rinker 260 Fiesta Vee with a 454 Mercruiser. The DOWN solenoid on the trim pump stuck in the on position. Since I didnt notice that the trim pump kept running, the solenoid completely burnt up. I replaced the solenoid and payed closer attention to when the trim pump was running ( i actually got in the habit of bumping the trim switch on the control up after plaining out to make sure that it didnt continue to push down). After about 8 hours of use the replacement solenoid also stuck (this time i caught it before it burnt up). I am getting ready to install the 3rd solenoid in 1 month. What is causing the solenoid to stick?

Hello micscrk, there could be a couple of things causing the problem. First, I would make sure the trim/tilt switch is not the problem. Second, make sure the solenoid if getting a solid ground.
