Rain Bird 150-PGA PGA Series 1-1/2 in, problem

Hi guys ,
I just purchased new Rain Bird 150-PGA PGA Series 1-1/2 in valve and can't set it.
If I turn the solenoid one click to the right valve won't open all the way but closes fine, if I turn it one click to left valve wont close but opens fine.
Why is it so sensitive?
this one :

Sounds like something in the solenoid or solenoid chamber isn't seating properly.

PGA's are pretty finicky, I've had problems with them that couldn't be solved. They're very sensitive to flow control and need pressure to close properly.

Spend a few extra bucks and replace it with a PEB, you'll be happier.

I stripped it ones, all inside look ok . I heard some buzzing noise from the solenoid and after slight tap, it stopped ,so I decided to buy new solenoid.
