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.

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.

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.
