Axe leaking through the barrel

I'm in need of some help. When I air up, my axe will leak from the barrel. It's a loud fast leak which leads me to believe it's a solenoid problem. I've tried turning the velocity cap back in all the way, and airing it up
again, but it still leaks. The marker itself is fairly new. The only changes I've made to it is adding a lurker bolt. I've tried putting the stock bolt back in, but I still have the same problem. I've also tried changing the battery. No luck there either. Any help/ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I had the same issue with one of my Axe's, and it was indeed the noid. Did some part swapping between my Axe's until I narrowed it down to the noid. Trying a rebuild was a bit extreme due to my schedule so I reached out to Kee's tech support. Kee sent me out a new Noid and it was promptly fixed.

Email/Call them and you'll be good.

When I bought my Mini, used, it leaked down the barrel when aired up. A new poppet fixed the problem. I'm assuming the face must have been scratched or warped or something.

Get the new battery and reduce the dwell... Stock 28 flash--->24 flash that should help.

I contacted Kee. They sent me a new noid. I tried it out, but I'm still having the same problem.

Is either the noid(new or not) sticking open or the poppet is dry and stuck open.
While your gun is leaking, turn the eyes off and cycle the gun while its leaking. If that doesn't fix it, degass your marker. Pull the velocity cap out and take your poppet out, check the o-ring, clean it, and relube it. Be sure your poppet spring is there and installed correctly in its home. Reinstall the cap and try again.
Fresh battery wouldn't hurt either.

I've tried everything that's been suggested here, and everything I can think of, and it's still leaking. I've contacted KEE, and I'm just going to send it to them so they can fix it, and I can quit worrying about it.
