First, Check resistance of Water Valve.
A shorted Valve or a bad dual Zener protection Diode in the Harness, can blow the Controller...

otherwise, sounds like a bad Controller .

Regus...that protection varistor, when it fails,will cause the unit to trip its breaker or fuse...as It provides a path from hot to neutral when it fails...

Either a bad board or broken wire...

... path from hot to neutral, through the Controller driver component... :woot:

although, if it "opens" or is disconnected,

there would no longer "spike" (caused by the Valve Coil) protection of the Controller.
