Geo+ slight solenoid leak?

The geo fully cycles and shoots fine, it's just that small little slow leak that annoys me.
It's coming from the noid, right under the grip screw threads to be exact. I place my finger there and I hear a disruption of air.
I took it out to inspect the noid and there was no cracks and the gasket looks good too.

Any opinions? Or related encounters?

Feel free to post.

I have had the same problem with my geo. if your holding it in your left hand is it comming from the right hand side of the solenoid with your ear next to it. mine comes out of the little square box on the right midde side of the solenoid. I have a new solenoid comming hope this solves my problem.

If you haven't already try taking the noid apart and cleaning/lubing it all. Then make sure the filter is clean and the back check ball are good.
Mine leaked a bit in the same manner, and cleaning the filter did the job.

Anyone know what size the orings are for the spool pack and pilot valve? I'm having the same leak and want to try to replace the orings on them. Thank you for any help.

geo leak

? is your filter screen installed all the way my freinds geo had the same issue and the screen was not all the way in causing the gasket to not fully seal. It caused a slight constant leak.

Yes I did check the gasket and screen, lubed it with grease and everything looks good. Has a very low hissss leak and I was thinking of replacing the orings next, but I don't know what size to buy.

Anytime man,
Keep me posted on how it goes.
Maybe I would need to give it a try if my leak is still there.

Found my issue, my leak was coming from the silver ball on the housing. I used some soapy water mix to confirm and found a very fine crack about half an inch I couldn't see until I used the soap mix to locate it with bubbles. I'll just have to order a new solenoid housing. Use soapy water to check to see if you have a crack in the housing.
