Leaking from solenoid screw

I need some help from some Vibe experts. There is a leak coming from one of the screws that holds the noid to the board. I have replaced the oring at the base of the solenoid but it is still leaking. I have tried wrapping some teflon tape around the screw which slowed down the leak, but not completely. Have anyone seen a leak from that location before? If so how do I fix it? Thanks for your help.

You can't fix it. That top solenoid housing is cracked if you look closely. You gotta get a new top solenoid housing to fix that. I've seen this problem a decent amount of times. You can try to smooth on JB Weld to try to avoid buying a new noid (Not sure if they would sell the top part alone), but I never tried JB welding it. Just a thought I had.
Call up GOG and see what they can do for you.

They really need to make the solenoids a little stronger. I've seen a couple of them literally blow up.

I have a new solenoid coming from GOG. It was $25. I hope this one will last a little longer.

I have a similar problem with mine, but I don't know if its coming from the screw or somewhere else in the noid. What causes it to crack like that? I loaned it to a goober who ran CO2 through it in HPA mode. Would that do it, or is it something else that causes that?

I don't think that the different modes would cause the solenoid to crack. The solenoids are only $25 so I can't imagine that they are built to be bullet proof.
