E2 Orracle clapper solenoid stops responding

I'm having a small issue I hope. I just purchased an E2 Orracle and it seems to be having an issue with the clapper solenoid. When I start walking the trigger the clapper solenoid activates just fine, however after a few second it stops activating. I no longer hear the click from the clapper solenoid. This happens at different intervals. I can be walking the trigger and after 4-5 secs the clapper solenoid stops activating and in other occasions it might take 8 secs to stop working. Once it stops working I have a to wait a while before I the clapper solenoid starts working again. any ideas? Thanks.

What's your SON set at?

Seems like a silly question but, are you using fresh batteries?

Pull the grip off the right side, and see if the noid core is getting stuck in the upward position. Sometimes, they can get gummed up, and need a cleaning.
Also, when it stops reacting, if you pull the cocking rod back, will the sear catch the hammer? If not, that also indicated that the noid core is stuck in the upward position.

Sorry to resurrect a dead thread, I figured it was better than creating a new thread about the same issue.

I am having the same issue as noremaximus. By your description and my examination the solenoid core is gets stuck in the upward position. You mention pulling out the clapper solenoid and cleaning it. However, I've looked online, as well as my E2 manual and I don't see anything about cleaning it specifically. Is there a way to go about it specifically, or should I just kind of figure it out as I go tonight?

You just unscrew a set screw on the side and the clapper comes out the top (don't touch the set screw in the bottom), then just pull it apart (core from coil) and clean it. Clappers are much simpler than solenoid valves.

Sounds easy enough, I'll pull it all apart tonight. Thanks for the help.

If that doesn't work make sure your sear spring isn't toast. I had to stretch mind out to get the sear to push the core back down.
