OK, serious question, are you telling me that the .19 - .21 amps I get for solenoids with my Fluke clamp meter is wrong? I use it sometimes with systems where a zone is err'ing out the controller but when I arrive it ohms fine and a reset gets it running again. Some of those solenoids need to get warm before they go short and I do see a slightly higher amp reading on them, which causes me to go ahead and replace them. "Good" solenoids always seem to be around .19 - .21 amps but I'm just using a regular Fluke meter, not a leakage meter...
