Axe ASA/Tube leak

Every time I seem to screw on my tank and flip the on/off switch it starts to leak and then if I switch the switch off and then turn it back on the leak stops is this something I should be worried about? The air is leaking were the female and male tube leak.

Do Not Use Tri-Flow - It's petroleum based and will cause your oring's to swell.

Tri Flow

Quote:
Tri-Flow® Superior Dry Lubricant is an elite formula created for dry and dusty conditions. The drip bottle application, with a convenient straw, allows for deep penetration in hard to reach moving parts. "Featuring paraffin wax and high-grade petroleum oil" to allow the lube to go on wet, but then set up in a dry, 'wax-like' film so it will not attract or absorb grit and grime. Perfect for dry, dirty, dusty conditions, while still providing adequate wet weather performance. Holds up to extreme pressures and resists water wash-off. Provides incredible efficiency without attracting an excessive amount of contaminants.
Synthetic air tool oil or Gold Cup paintball oil is the best choice.

Is it the ASA leaking or is it in the grip? I had this issue but it was in the grip which was caused by a faulty air tube bleed valve.

In the grip cause when I take the grips off air leaks out between the male and female tube but then if I switch off the Asa and then turn it back on it goes away

Then replace/lube the oring where the two tubes meet. Simple enough to take out and do. Very light coat should do the trick.

It should. Just make sure you color match what one you take off to the one you put on.

(If you're taking the red one off, put on a new red one. I'm not sure which of the two is the one you need.)

I had to replace the tube after the first time I used it because for some reason the bleed valve doesn't close the first time you gas up. I used the tube from a mini (no hole) and haven't had any issues since.

Ahh my apologies, you meant the one that comes with the gun, not the kit you can go buy after.

As to firehawk, sounds like you just needed a light clean/lube. Mine opens/closes just fine on air up.

I don't understand I've changed all the o-ring tubes #20 #21 and #23 every time I gas up my gun it seems to leak in between the male and female tube. If I turn the ASA off then back on the leak stops. I don't know what to do now any ideas?

If you've changed all three and lubed them, that sounds like it could potentially be the 'noid seeing as it sits right there.

Unless you can feel the air specifically coming out from between the tubes? you may just have a dinger (I'm not sure how) that's breaking the seal, or like the other guy said, your bleed valve might not be catching.

Yes, that's probably the problem. Make sure to assemble you solenoid correctly when reinstalling it.

Any idea where I could get the o-ring instead of buying a 'noid

yes Call Kee, or email them they will send you out a new asa, no questions asked. Their Customer sevice is pretty good. make sure you have that really small o-ring that goes in the asa between the two posts as well, if thats not there the ASA should be a bit loose and it will leak. Good luck.

No I tried that nothing worked it was a faulty part and had replaced the o ring.
