    I have a team mates Etha that seems to be leaking from the grip frame, checked all the usual, check the solenoid o rings and cleaned but still doing it. The marker is only 3 months old.

    At low pressure 200-210 over the chrono their is no leak and cycles fine but as you turn it up it starts pissing out of the grip frame and macro line.

    Any Idea as i'm more of an ego man myself do not really do Ethas apart from basic maintenance for them.

    Thanks Mike

    It can be that the solenoid is protected, and when you overpressure it starts to leak. I would drop the pressure to a point where it doesent leak and check the orings on the bolt assembly, also check the dwell settings.

    You if i turn the pressure down it stops to leak but then it only puts 230-240 over the chrono which is ok for woodland but no good for Tourny :/ I have stripped the bolt and rechecked, cleaned and re-lubed all the orings on the bolt and rammer and still the same issue. I have also swapped the bolt from my sons etha (works fine in his marker) and get the same issue where its blowing air out of the back/frame.

    Stumped it not the word :/

    Swap the 'noid over please.
    If that fixes it. Email supportuk@planeteclipse.com. High chance you might have a faulty solenoid.

    Well my noid in his marker runs sweet, his noid my marker leaks like buggery lol, I would have never thought it would have been that. Is it a common fault?

    It's a wee bit of a problem in the older ethas. I see his is from 2013, so I'd wager so. :)
