Blichman Beer Gun Help!!! - Leak
 
Im using this for the first time and seem to be doing something wrong. I've got a video showing the issue, but can seem to figure out how to embed it from the HBT app.

There is a liquid leak that is shooting out from the elbow that is facing the gas side.

Here is the video link: http://i475.photobucket.com/albums/r...s/52d451c5.mp4

Any ideas? Thanks...

I dont know why liquid would come out when you hit the gas buttom. Assuming everything is connected properly, the thing itself must be faulty. Get a replacement. The thing is a great tool and ive used many times without issues.

Bump...anyone else with a beer gun that has taken it apart and knows if I'm missing any pieces? I need to fill some bottles ASAP and don't have time to return it. I'd rather fix the one I have.

Do you have the gas and the liquid backwards? Liquid should come in through the top and only goes from the tube into the long SS tube to the bottom. There should be no liquid going through the brass and when you push the button on the brass that should purge with CO2.

yeah, the gas and liquid are totally separate in the gun. Gas needs to feed the brass fitting and liquid in the long stainless tube. Looks backwards

+1

The C02 and beer lines have to be backwards.

Edit: lines are not crossed.

They can't be crossed because it has a threaded fitting.

Any other ideas?

yeah, switch the lines. They are swapped.

Yeah you definitely have the lines going to the wrong place. The black quick disconnect (liquid) needs to go to the very top of the beergun. CO2 to the brass fitting (white quick disconnect on the other end of the line).

I just got one of these too, the directions included were pretty clear I thought.
