It's nothing to do with the solenoid. Congratulations on a very good repair

The lens isn't faulty either, it's well within normal working ranges. However if you'd like to change this setting you can always dismantle the lens. I would definitely warn against it as you will then get overexposing at all other aperture settings. I'm speaking from experience.
