I am working on a freestyle that has something wrong with the solenoid.

When there is air in the LPR, the solenoid vents. I am pretty darn sure that the gasket and manifold are good.

Thoughts? Is the noid fixable?

sounds like the piston is stuck. take it apart and give it a cleaning and lube. then check the manifold and gasket. need to eliminate all possibilities. swapping out with a known working will also help narrow down the problem, like the LPR over pressurizing the noid.

I already swapped in a working gasket and put a different noid onto it. The manifold is tapped for 2-56 screws and solid as a rock. The LPR is known to be working (and worked with the working noid) and with the slightest bit of pressure, the solenoid vents.


Incidentally, I am going to text you.

Take off the end cap and use a toothpick to push the spool back a little (gently). Replace the endcap and see what happens. I have used that to free stuck noids before, and as long as it's not a bad oring, it's been pretty successful.

What model? Can you see where the lpr oring is seating against the body? I had one that was drilled slightly off and the 010 oring would not seal. I need to think on this one...

It is a FS4, gen 2. It worked with the noid out of my bonebrake freestyle.

The stuck piston sounds likely. I think this marker sat for a long time before it made its way to me.

It works. I had to take the noid apart to actually push the piston out, as seen in Mike's Promaster solenoid service thread. The piston was really stuck in there. A little bit of lube and we are good. Now I just have to get the board to work.
