Luxe 2.0 OLED Leak

Hi Guys,

I seem to be struggling with a bubbling sound coming from the grip frame area, sounds like air trying to creep past an oring. I've had the marker from new 15/16 Months.

I have taken the grip frame off, removed the reg and connected a CP reg and gassed up, no leaks from the solenoid.

I have replaced the body oring twice put every thing back together and still get the same bubbling/gargling sounds. I'm pretty much at the point of throwing it in the trash!!

I'm waiting to speak to a guy who used to work for GoG/DLX in the UK, but just wanting some input as to what it may be?

Thank you kindly in advance,

Alex

clean your regulator, it sounds like you have an over pressurized gun, so your solenoid is venting. you need to turn down the reg. if it is a slow leak that is 99% of the time your problem. if the frame to body oring was leaking you would know it due to it being a very fast loud leak.

Thanks for that, I have stripped and cleaned the reg and replaced the piston oring. I zero'd the reg and slowly wound it in until it shot, but the sound is still there

The seat had a small circle shape from impact, but nothing drastic, I'll see if I have some spares

Changed the reg seat in the piston, still no change (one of the older types I'm afraid)

if you could post a video that would greatly help.

i place a little bit of lube on the frame to body oring to insure a good seal is in place, however if the leak stops with a different regulator the leak is either coming from a solenoid being over pressurized or you have a frame to body leak.

The reg I used was a CP Reg, so the grip frame was off at the time of testing.

I don't think a video would pick up the audio, but I'll give it a try

I'm just getting a feeling of been let down a bit, when I first got it, the ASA had to be re-threaded as it didn't go far enough, seems like the process started early and finished early.
Then when I got it back, there was an issue with the bolt, there was a warped raised section that kept catching and splitting orings, so had to get the bolt replaced. Now there isn't really any where in the UK to get it properly looked at by a competent tech.

im, sorry to hear about all your issues. so lets work to get them resolved, your options are either mail the gun to DLX USA which can be pricey and take some time or option B send it to Smart Parts UK or give them a call.

Smartparts UK has recently been taken over, so I don't think they really have any Luxe techs as they are a retail store. There was one guy called Gommie, who used to work for GoG/Smartparts UK, he said he'd take a look. I don't mind paying for spares ect, just don't want buy replacement parts if they're not causing the issue. I seem to have bad luck with markers, the touch of doom! haha...
