DM6 front on off valve leak

My dm6 is leaking and it sounds like it is the front on off valve. Do you think new o rings will fix it. Also I am getting a lot of chopped balls. Where do I start to fix that. Could the on off leaking have anything to do with the balls coming out broken?

The on off valve above the regulator is the one that is leaking. Sorry if I was not clear.

Those valves are a real PITA on older dms. I would suggest installing a CP flow plug ( $10 )

Thanks. I have heard that a lot. Would that possibly cure the other problem I have. (paint balls breaking)

If your DM6 front on/off valve is leaking then it's due to the o-rings failing within the on/off assembly. It's actually a simple fix if you have spare o-rings, once repaired, you shouldn't ever run into that problem again if you don't touch the front on/off.

Refer to page 11 to see the DM6's on/off valve assembly: http://www.dyematrix.com/manuals/Dye...DM6_Manual.pdf

There's a reason why DYE got rid of the front on/off assembly in their later markers. If you want to fully eliminate this problem, then invest in a Custom Product Continuous flow plug as mentioned above.

OR just tighten the screw to ON position, like you cant switch the valve back and forth. Then no need for CP flow plug.
