grip frame leak...again

Hi.

I just got my used Luxe 2.0.. It shoots AMAZING!!!!

BUT!! yesterday when I shot of a couple of paintballs in the garden. It started to leak from the gripframe, in the solenoid area... I took my reg apart and cleaned it, but didn't touch the reg seat...

This didn't help.

I then took my solenoid of, lubed orings between body and manifold and between solenoid and manifold..
This didn't help...

Now I'm a bit lost... can it be a oring in the engine?

It shoots, but the leak gets worse when it's shot... when I degas the gun there's no air in the engine area, so I can't vent it by lifting the back latch.

what can it be? Solenoid???

hoping you guys can help me out!

Dan

My guess is that it is the body plug leaking.

I took the solenoid and orings off and lubed them, still leaks...

The oring between body and frame is quite hard, could this be the issue?

It certainly could be. My experience is that I've had the issue twice (on two different 1.5's) and both times it was the body plug.

so....just changed the oring, between body and frame, no changes...

I think the noid is venting... and it will not "lock" the air within the powercore to keep the bolt back when tank is removed...

it shoots and the noid appears to be working fine electronical and it clicks... CAN it be something fishy in the noid?

I had this thing for a week....(cursing....alot)....!

Try lowering the hpr to 0 and if it gasses up and is still leaking it's the body plug.

yes, it is possible that an oring on the core is causing the solenoid to vent. However let's start with the basics, zero out your HPR as Oldmanian has stated.

to me it sounds like a Regulator related issue. So zero out the regulator then open it up and chrono the gun, if you still have a vent and barely have enough air going into the gun. Chances are your Regulator seat or the regulator body have damage.

Also make sure you have a gold Regulator spring, and you have proper Urethane/HBNR orings in the gun.

Check your 16/70 on the bolt and the outer 20/70 orings.

this is a long shot. But can it be my tank-output pressure being to low???

It's an Ninja UL reg with all shims taken out?

No

Maybe too high would be a problem if it is like 1000 psi or more
Some dirty tank regs will do this

If you are zeroing out he got and it stops then it is the hpr too high. And the solenoid venting to avoid it being compromised

regulator issue. take apart the regulator and first check the regulator seat, then look at the housing for any damage

But my tank output.pressure is approx. 400-450 as I said, a ul-reg with no shims... could this really cause the noid to vent?

Not your tank Reg, your luxe's Reg

I know but I guess that a faulty sends the unregulated air from the tank into the noid eith causes the venting. Am I right? in that case, does the noid leak with 400-450 psi?

Please tell me if i'm WAY of!
