THE SOLENOID IS DESIGNED TO REPLACE THE ORIGINAL SOLENOID ON AN ORBIT VALVE. iF YOUR VALVE HAS FAILED ELECTRICALLY SUCH AS AN OPEN OR SHORT THE VALVE IS A DIRRECT REPLACEMENT. EASY TO INSTALL IN MINUTES.
All 24 volt solenoid valves work the same way. However, the threads for where they screw into the valve body and the length of the piston sometime (but not often) differ. One way to determine this is to measure the length of the piston in the "relaxed" position and then activate it and measure the length extended. If these will work for your valve, the next thing is to see if the solenoid can be screwed into the valve body. If so, mount it and see if the valve works. If not, hopefully you have kept the receipt and the packaging so it can be returned.
It is always best to take your old solenoid to the store to match it up. Home Depot associates are very helpful.
I have experienced that same thing when one of my solenoids failed.
Check the solenoid by turning off the water supply and unscrewing the solenoid from the valve. Be sure the plunger does not get lost. Usually the spring will hold it in. Turn on the station manually and see if the plunger goes into the solenoid. If so, the solenoid is ok. I have found on some of my valves that the plunger does not go into the solenoid far enough to open the valve. I am not sure what causes this but installing a thin washer or O-ring between the solenoid and the valve should allow the plunger to open more and turn on the valve completely. (The problem started on mine after being off over the winter. I can't figure out what dimension might have changed on the solenoid that would not allow the plunger to go into the solenoid as far.)
We do not currently make a solenoid compatible with the Weathermatic M24E valve.
That would depend on whether your Champion valve typically uses 24V solenoids. If so, then yes this solenoid should work as a fine replacement.
