Yup it's another leaking etha thread...

So I bought this etha for 50.00 smoking deal looks pretty much brand new and has all the parts, sleeve, everything it would new.

Kid says it leaks said not a problem I will take it, gas it up and it leaks out the back cap but in the middle where the spring or springless poppit would be, and I'm talking high rate of leakage.

What is my solution I can't figure it out ?

It sounds like the poppet spring is leaking, I would try to get a springless poppet. I believe you have to register it with eclipse and then they will send you one for free. You can contact the PE tech support in Rhode Island for assistance.

What is the HPR set too? The solenoid will automatically vent if it is being overpressurized. Also verify that you have the springless poppet from the get go- seriously no use in diagnosing without it.

Try a new battery, always Duracell or Energizer, seems silly but it's important to have good power supply to the solenoid.

Then move onto breaking down the bolt system and rebuilding. Start with the 009, 010, and 011 on the firing poppet (front, middle and rear respectively). My next one would be the valve joiner internal (012) oring.

Online manual for reference:

Or, just look up your nearest service center and send it in for repair:
