Is My Solenoid toast?

Hey All,

All of the sudden my co2 is coming through my solenoid when off. It is much slower than when on - maybe 1 bubble a second. Is this thing toast? Or is there something I can do to fix it?...

Noisy like it sounds like a small motor running in there. I definitely won't be able to deal with it if this is normal - strange. Glad to know the hot part is normal.

Does my CO2 tank need to be upright?

That is the question. It is nearly impossible for me to keep mine upright under the stand. So can I build a little lean to shelf or even lay it down flat on the bottom? I would prefer not to keep it...
