Deer Alarm

So I found this homemade alarm that uses a motion sensor and washing machine water inlet solenoid valve to set off a sprinkler when deer come around the garden.

Deer alarm

So I built it with what I had around and while testing it stopped working. The solenoids are 110v 8W and the motion senor is 110v 2.5amp not to exceed 140W. The sensor was one I had around but not used much but its the part that isn't functioning anymore. Do you think I burnt it up somehow running the solenoid? I don't want to buy another to do the same.
