G3iQ noid issue (I think..)

I'm currently having an issue with my G3iQ and I believe it's stemming from something that went wrong with my noid. I've already verified and replaced any suspect orings that looked like they had even the slightest bit of wear on them. When I put my tank in, Immediately when I turn on my RAPS, the bolt goes forward, stays there and I hear a leak coming from the general vicinity of the solenoid. I figured I'd come to you guys first instead of just purchasing a new solenoid all together. Is there anything that I should be looking for in/around the area of the noid to see if it needs replacing, as well as I'm wondering if I could end up ****ing up my dwell by servicing it.

Thanks in advance

Unhook the air and try seeing if the noid cycles when you pull the trigger. Will have to turn the eyes off of course.

it sounds like your solenoid is sticking open. all you need to to is relube it and maybe replace a bad oring on the piston and it should be as good as new.

Would monkey poo lube work on the noid or do I need something oil based?

Sorry for the obvious inexperience but I've never actually serviced my noid seeing as I never had any issues. Where exactly would I lube it up and whatnot? I dissconnected it from the frame and two long screws and 2 silver collars came out

The set screw on the side of the noir isn't moving in the least and I'm slowly stripping the screw head..any other ideas or just keep trying?

Make sure you're using the right size screwdriver and use a wrench to grip the body.

Got it off after a while..Got rid of the old lube and replaced it and the leak fixed itself. New problem however.. The leak moved itself to pissing air out of the bottom of the velocity adjuster and between the bottom 2 parts of the reg. *sigh*

replace the oring on the velocity screw. if that doesnt fix it then try the piston oring
