09 Solenoid not getting enough power?
I am having a problem with the solenoid in my 09 Ego. With the frame off and the gun aired up I can hear a tiny, tiny leak from the noid. It is coming from the small pinhole on the magnet coil at the front of the pilot valve and noid wires, barely perceptible. It's been there for a while and the gun shot fine, however when I went to shoot it today the gun would not cycle.
During troubleshooting I determined that the noid was clicking, however it seems much quieter than normal and I cannot hear the noid piston moving, just the magnet. Noid is clean inside and out. Reg pressures are appropriate and I have the marker aired up. Ive tried like 20 bucks worth of new batteries too. It seems as if the noid is getting enough power to click but not to actually move the piston. All wires look fine.
Was there a large incidence of solenoid failure in the 09s? Could the leak and new problem be related? Time for a new noid or pilot valve and start from scratch?
