Default regulator rebuild?

Mine was used (almost free) when I bought my 5# CO2 tank off Craigslist.

It has worked fine for a couple of months but now shows signs of sticking a little. I might set the pressure at 8 and come home to find it at 12. When I dial it up, nothing happens and then it jumps a couple lbs at once.

Can I clean it or rebuild it?

Thanks

sounds like the dials are sticking not the adjustment on the reg itself. most shops sell repair kits for the brands of regs they carry.

I bought the kits here rapidswholesale

I called them because I didnt see the model reg I had the girl was very helpful and knew what she was talking about. The parts came in 3 days . Took me all of 10 minutes to rebuild 2 regs.
