2.0 Power Core Issues

I just installed a 2.0 power core in my luxe and it shoots fine if I dry fire but I noticed paint wasn't feeding, looked inside and saw that the bolt wasn't fully returning and was sticking out a bit which is why the paint wasn't being fed. Does anyone know whats wrong and how to fix it? Any help is appreciated.


P.S this is the second time i've installed the 2.0 core, I installed it on my previous luxe and there was no issues.

One of two things is happening...

1. The bolt guide isn't screwed in all the way.
2. The spring isn't sitting in the hole in the bolt guide.

Just double checked and the bolt guide is screwed in all the way but how would I be able to tell if the spring isn't sitting right?

you mean you have to dry fire it once, then the bolt returns to where it should be and it feeds then?

No the bolt sticks out to much and it doesn't feed at all so it returns sticking out again.

what are your board settings?
dwell:
fsdo:
loader delay:
manifold setting:
feathertouch: in or out?
tank reg output:
are you familiar with luxe powecore o-ring fitment?

So your gun works fine with the 1.0 core, but when you swap in a brand new 2.0 core, the gun is having issues?

Be specific and it'll be easier for members to help you

It's either the bolt guide or the spring. Not much else would cause that

this has happened to me before and making sure that the bolt guide is screwed all the way in should fix it. the bolt guide when screwing it in feels like youve tightened it already but will actually turn a few more till it sits to the very bottom only then it will fix your problem. i had a headache trouble shooting this at first as i thought that my hopper wasnt feeding. bolt guide has shallow hole where spring sits in make sure that spring isnt bent and is snug when spring sits. i made a mistake rushing to put my core together resulting a broken spring. hope this helps you

Problem with the core here too. I've had my luxe for some months now and I have to say it has performed excellently! Until today. Everything was going on fine until it started misfiring. I opened the bolt and the spring has actually been broken in half. What can i do? I'm searching the net to buy a spring but i can't find one anywhere. First of all i don't know if i can really unscrew the rest of the spring that's left in the bolt. Can anyone help?

You can unscrew that spring with an Allen wrench. It goes right through the middle of the spring. D Trent at DLX will sell you one. He's very good responding through emails and phone calls.

I'm really sorry, but i've contacted D Trent once in the past and he never answered me and i'm not in favor of bombing someone with emails until he answers me, so no help there. Actually, the only place i've ever gotten help for both my markers is here!
Anyway, I found out by cutting the rest of the spring that Vale46 was actually right, there is an allen opening i can unscrew the spring if i find such a long wrench. The problem is i can't find a replacement spring on the net.
I i guess Wastedslayer is right. I should call DLX. Which will be much easier by tomorrow since i'll be in LA.
Thanks again guys!

DLX will replace it free of charge, no need to buy one off the internet. They replaced the entire bolt for me 3 different times, on three different luxes.
