Geo Solenoid Leak Need Help Fast!!!

When i pull the trigger on my geo it shoots air out of one of the ports in the top of it. It does not leak otherwise. Only when I try to fire. I am aware of the solenoid venting. In my case the gun does not fire at all and all air is shot out of the solenoid. What is wrong with my solenoid?
Port where air is shooting out is circled below.

May not be a solenoid issue - could also be down to the bolt kit.

Make sure that the back check ball is vlean and undamaged and that it isn't less than 4.00mm in diameter.

Clean and check the condition of the spool pack o-rings.

On the bolt make sure that the vent behind the can o-rings is just a pinhole, no larger.

Sometimes when you take the solenoid apart...as you reassemble it...if you don't go slowly...the Large Pilot Valve O ring can roll out of its track. This will present the symptom that you describe.

One reason I always tell everyone...take your marker apart ONLY when you need to. So many people are OCD and feel a need to fully strip the marker after every time out to play. This is Overkill! The marker will tell you when it needs attention.

As Uziel has indicated...it may also be down to the bolt assembly...more precisely...the O rings on there. make sure you are using the correct O rings as outlined in the manual.

Finally...if the Spool Pack O rings are worn out...you may have to change them. You won't be able to SEE anything abnormal with them unless one is torn. If your marker has a large number of shots...the inner tolerance of the solenoid manifold may be worn around the spool...or the spool may be binding up.

These are all I can think of...other than the most common problem...a cheap or worn out battery!

geo solenoid

Hey KLTurn3r- I'm having the same issue and am about to send my geo off to a service center for repair.

Did you ever find the best way to correct this issue?

Thanks.
