Default New Regulator Leaking?

Hey Guys,

So I've just got a new kegerator setup, and have been burning though CO2 like crazy. After tweaking a few things and testing with sanitizer, I've identified where my leak is coming from.

Any thoughts on a fix? Obviously I've contacted the company and should be getting them to send me a new one, but I was hoping to get it up and running in the mean time. Any thoughts? Can I somehow tape this shut? Should I try to take it off and retighten it?

That connection is either taped or cemented. If you can unscrew the valve, clean out the threads, tape it, and reinstall the valve without dinging things up to where a return is improbable, you may be able to cure the leak...

Cheers!
