Noid Leak?

The other day i was cleaning out the regulator and after i was done, i had a leak from the solenoid area. im still not 100 percent it's coming from there, but that's what it sounds/feels like. i took it all apart and inspected everything, but i still can't find the answer. the oring between the grip frame and the trigger frame is good. i've cleaned out the reg twice, and the solenoid still clicks when the eyes are off. I'm going to check inside of the noid to see if there's anything broken in there. I do know that the pressure of the reg might be wonky cause i remember that i accidentally was screwing that in/out instead of using a 3/8ths allen key to take off the reg housing at the beginning (oops). If you have any ideas, please let me know

having a similar problem still

sounds like the reg might be creeping. Try flipping reg seat over. Try adjusting dwell to around 14-16ms and lower LPR to get the gun firing around 285 fps and see if it still leaks.

this is what i did but I still have a tiny leak when i first air up but then it goes away after a shot or two.

hope this helps

No Lpr in the luxe. I would bottom out the reg then slowly raise it while firing over a chrono after you check the reg seat

Try changing the back oring on the bolt itself (i believe this is considered the bolt sail, size 16/70). If the fitment or the oring is bad it can cause the solenoid to vent.

if you take the piston out of the reg, on the top there is a little delrin piece. take that out and flip it over

Zero out the reg and turn it up while shooting. Sometimes after a cleaning the reg pressures can go higher or lower. I've had mine drop as much as 25 fps just disassembling and cleaning the reg. When I clean my reg now I always zero it out then turn it up and rechrono after.

I would call dlx direct for any small reg parts.

I am having a similar problem. I was thinking the solenoid was broken, but it still clicks and shoots fine. Just has that small leak near the grip frame. So because it still clicks, does that mean that the solenoid is not broken?
