Promaster Help

Alright after wanting one for a little while I picked up a used promaster from cragslist a few days ago. I brought a tank to make sure it worked and it fired just fine. I brought it home and dry fired it some more.

After four days or so, I go to air it up and nothing happens. The reg is set to about 300 psi. I set the lpr according to the Promaster faq on ICDO, a half turn out from leaking. But when I screw the air in, the bolt no longer cocks itself. I tried using the test button on the noid but nothing happens. Any thoughts?

1) install a new battery

2) make sure that the trigger can click on the board(many people miss adjust the trigger and have it too far in).

3) make sure the bolt is in the correct way and in the rammer properly

4) check the dwell settings on the board

5) make sure that the eyes are off(check this by clicking the trigger while not aired up by sticking a barrel swab or something to block the eyes so they are reading the "paint".)

That's troublesome. For sure follow Nobody's steps above, but with pressure, the button on the noid should work.

If the bolt doesn't go back, that's no LPR pressure (or you would hear a big leak). Do you have a good HPR gauge with pressure showing?

I've done all of Nobody's steps except checking the dwell. I'll try that this afternoon.

I'm running a sidewinder and it shows 300 psi. The lpr makes the solenoid leak when its too high so I'm pretty sure it's getting pressure. The solenoid still clicks abd everything without air.

are you sure that its the noid that is clicking and not the microswitch?

zero out the regs again. take the frame off, so you can access the noid. listen for leaks. use a spray bottle if need be(though don't get the noid soaked). take the board out of the frame and the eyes out of the gun. air up the gun and set the HPR then LPR per instructions(set HPR to about 275- just under so that the +/- of the gauge isn't too high for the noid) and then turn up the LPR till the bolt moves or the noid leaks.

after that, push the microswitch on the board, while holding both eyes in your hand. see what that does. you can skip the eye holding if you disable the eyes(its either holding the trigger down till the LED blinks or holding the trigger down before turning it on, turn gun on and the LED should be blinking). see what that happens.

the only other thing is, that the hoses leading from the noid are flipped. this would result in the noid trying to push out when there is no air and vice versa.

I'm positive it is the noid that is clicking. I did all that you recommended. Zeroed both regs. It seems like no air is getting to the ram because it is not cocking when I gas it up like it is supposed to?

sounds like the spool in the noid may be stuck. If you have pressed the little red button, and still nothing (multiple times, not one and done), then you might want to do a teardown, or send it off to someone for a teardown.

How hard are the noids to tear down? I have no problems tearing things apart.

Not hard at all, but the parts are very small. There are two tiny magnetic rods that help cycle the thing. Do NOT lose them, either one! Work in the middle of a flat table and pay attention as you go.

Did you press and hold the 'noid button or just press and release? I remember having to press and hold until it cycles. I remember because it scared the crap outta me!
