Hey, I just bought an new invert mini in matte red its all stock right now but I noticed my solenoid is very very quiet when I first use it and slowly grows louder. However today it was just incredibly quiet where you couldn't hear unless you had your ear right next to the feed neck is there something wrong with the solenoid? This is my first electronic marker.

Probably not

Try shooting it with air and see what happens, and if something is wrong, change your battery first before anything else

Yes many of the invert mini noids were like that for some reason. 99% of the time the noid is fine. If your marker does leak from the noid you can take it out and clean it. If it still leaks send it to paintball solutions(kee sports) and they will fix it up for you. They fixed mine for free :D

yup thats exactly what mine does as well, i think its just the lube in there, when you click it away the lube moves out of the way and then you can hear it better

note to the new mini owner-do not attempt to take apart the regulater....its a bad idea

Well I talked to the folks at KEE, got in touch with a great guy named Joe who called me this afternoon to explain whats going on to me. Joe told me that basically its the solenoid warming up the solenoid is lubed at the factory and depending on how long it takes to go from factory to store to you it could dry up etc and need to warm up.

The longer you go without lubing the longer it will take to warm up, so today I opened up my mini and lubed it up and its much louder! Joe actually told that if anyone needed help with that to simple call up KEE and they will give you walk through on how to do it, it was a very simple procedure took like two minutes max. Hope that helps anyone out who has an issue big thanks to everyone here and to the kind folks at KEE who helped me out!
