Hello everyone!

I recently decided to get into kegging. The regulator I purchased was hooked up properly, started to expel gas, then stopped. Since then no gas will travel through the outlet. Not sure what I did wrong.

Tank is plenty full of gas, the first gauge shows lots of co2 left. The second gauge shows 10-12 psi, depending on how far I turn it. I have tried turning it off, detaching and reattaching the regulator from the co2 tank. The release valve expels gas when I pull it as well. I've fiddled with the shut-off valve and from what I can see staring inside with a flashlight, it seems to be moving when I turn it. Any advice? I've searched all over for someone else with this kind of problem and haven't been able to find a similar issue. Thanks!
How do you have the regulator attached to the kegs? Manifold? Have you checked the gas-in connector to the keg to make sure co2 comes out of it? Silly questions, maybe, but sometimes the simplest thing is the culprit. No lines pinched?

Nothing was mentioned about kegs...

hmm, maybe not? :mug: even when i presurize my dead line for burst carbing with my spify dual body it makes noise just filling the 7 or so feet of line....

edit i mean if he's not got it hooked up to kegs? is he blowing up led zepplins?
Just saying, there literally was no mention of actually hooking up a keg so far.
I'm a dyed for life engineer. I don't assume...
