    hi i have one of the premium airgun fill units pictured here  

    http://jdsairman.com/MiscProducts.html

    i only used it twice. the first time the screw knob, black one. came off and i had to locktite it on. the knob was stiff, hard to turn. the second time i tried to use it , it leaked co2 up that shaft.

    how to fix it ?

    thanks

    If you bought it new I recommend you contact the seller and either get advice on a fix or send it back.

    LocTite is death to plastic (sez so in the directions). If any dripped down the shaft and touched a seal, it’s fried.

    I don’t think the retailer is going to be of much help, and I can’t tell you how to fix it yourself.

    Sorry.

the seal was already sxrewed, but i kept it turned upside down so it wouldn’t run into the mechanism.

    i got the diagram, simple actually, but getting the loctite loose is the new issue

    Can you use a heat gun w/o melting the thing? IIRC methylene chloride will loosen Loctite but it’s not the easiest chem to source and you’d need to be sure it wouldn’t harm the plastic knob itself, unless the knob can be replaced by another knob altogether (which might not be a bad idea). There are all sorts/types of knobs available that are held on w/set screws, etc.
