Solenoid gone?

Post by The Machine on Thu 21 Mar 2013 - 20:14

I think my solenoid has gone in my etek3. I had cleaned it and as always checked it worked afterwards. And it did for a little bit (got it into ramp twice) but then nothing. It stopped shooting.
I noticed the bolt would not stay in the forward position (pressure pushed it back). After about 5 mins this pressure dispersed. However I did notice now that the solenoid was not firing, but the micro switch I could still hear.
I stripped it and put it back together, checking the connections where in correctly and still no solenoid noise. I am assuming this means I need to replace the solenoid itself?

I am posting just in case anyone else has any other surggestions as I am not really a gun tech, but I think I am learning quiet well Embarassed

Sorted. My gun seems to have changed its trigger settings while I was shooting? I decided to check everything I could think of, I played with the trigger magnetic return and hay presto. Has anyone else heard of the trigger changing its settings while firing before?
