Default Same problem

I am having the same problem with a brand new regulator. Should the gas be turned off when unhooking the red CO2 tube?

A little more clarification on the instructions would be greatly appreciated.

Steve

Yes, it's assumed the gas is off when you're unhooking the red liine.

Default Easy Fix

Thanks for the post. I also had a problem with the regulator creep, but following these instructions, it was easy to fix. My kegerator worked great for a year than this. Thought I would need a new regulator, diaphragm or something, but this fixed it.

Hi

More general answer - any time you unhook a line, turn it off. You *might* not ned to, but it won't hurt if you do. Valves in each line make this a lot easier to do. You only have to shut off the upstream (towards the tank) valve on the line you are fiddling with.

Bob

I have the same system, and I hate to say it, but I fight with the same issues 3 years later. Every now and then I have to do the above steps to keep it from shooting up to 30 PSI over night.
