Noid does click but Gun Still fires

So ive now put maybe 2-3 case of paint through my Brand new Etha. Straight out of the box with the eyes off i could hear the noid click with each trigger pull

Now with the eyes off i cant hear the noid clicking but the gun is still firing. Is this normal

If it aint broke, dont fix it. When air leaks out of the barrel bad or it catches on fire, then worry.

the etha noid needs and wants a name brand fresh battery to make it click when its not gassed up, when its gassed up the air assists the opening and does not require as much battery power................ there for if it aint broke dont f**k with it

Yes it is perfectly normal. The solenoid works off a combination of electromagnetic drive and air assist (once gassed).
With a most of the solenoids, if you have a brand new battery that is a decent brand you will get the solenoid to click every time as the charge being supplied by the fresh battery is enough to drive the internal mechanism on its own. However, as the battery level drops even slightly, when there is no "air assist" in the solenoid the battery cannot fully drive the mechanism every time you pull the trigger. However once the air is on the gun the air assist and the battery combine to make sure the solenoid funtions perfectly.

Hope that makes sense.

I have a feeling even if the Etha caught fire it would still shoot just fine

I was having bolt stick, or at least whatever seemed close to that.

Upping my dwell from stock-12 to 14 fixed it.
