My air cannon will not work. When I push the trigger I can here the selinoid click but no bang. The back of the selinoid was open and I am not sure if it was like that( all the air was shooting out the back of the selinoid) so I sealed the back up but all I get is click and no bang. The air cannon is from DC Props. I was thinking of changing the selinoid but my hall sucks now and I want to try to get it working by this weekend. Any info will help. Thanx

I assume it has not always done this....can you decipher a part number and manufacturer on the solenoid? Maybe it is a model with 2 outlet ports and for some reason it is triggering to the wrong port? Otherwise, it may be busted and you are just getting a dump to the exhaust port.

Thanx for your answer and I am just going to change the solenoid and the valve on it but can't get the parts till next week(#*+?). I got on YouTube (should of done that first) and learned the make up of the prop. Thanx
