Noid Leak? Help!

Purchased Etha 1 month ago and it shot great out of box. Today however, during a game it started leaking severely internally somewhere. So far I have replaced (from a friends working Etha); the whole bolt assembly, the regulator, and my air system (just in case.) None of that worked. The leak seems to coming from the noid or prior to it. When its leaking I try to fire it as well to see if its after; and it does not fire. So anything I should check for or any known issues? Thanks in advance.

Have you tried removing the frame, connecting the air supply, and seeing if you can pinpoint the source of the leak?

They are o-rings between the solenoid manifold and the body. And a thick rubber gasket between the solenoid and manifold.

Ok it's leaking out the hole on the backside of the solenoid. The part is triangular in shape and the hole is facing downwards between 2 set screw holes. Is that the manifold?

Took that assembly off the gun and the orings are fine. Local the tech at Swatpaintball concurs its probably the noid.

That triangular part is indeed the manifold, but it's unlikely that the issue is a defective solenoid. Your first port of call is to replace the number 020 NBR 70 o-rings on the Valve Body, lubricate lightly with Eclipse Grease, reassemble and re-test.

If that doesn't fix the leak then you'll need to strip the bolt assembly so that you gain access to the firing poppet. Replace the 010 NBR on the firing poppet, lubricate lightly with Eclipse Grease, reassemble and re-test.

The final (o-ring) port of call if all of the above has not alleviated the issue is to replace the 014 NBR 70 orings on the Valve joiner, lubricating them lightly with Eclipse Grease reassemble and re-test.

Please follow the above advice first and foremost as it's relatively simple to carry out and doesn't necessitate sending the marker anywhere. If however, the leak still persists after all of the above, then you may indeed have a solenoid issue, in which case we'll gladly take care of you. Please let us know how you get on.
