My regulator is stuck. Luckily, I manhandled it from 0 back up to 6 or 7 psi so that I can still dispense. But I can't force carb or seal up my kegs. And I can't adjust it from the 6-7psi that it's currently seized up at.
Can I buy just the black regulator bit (detached, shown above) without buying the whole body? Anyone got some good links for it?
I don't want to have to shell out $50 for a whole new body, gauge, and all.
Also, anyone had theirs seize up before? Thoughts on what caused it / how to prevent it? I've only had my tank since... January maybe? February? I bought the regulator used from the fire supply store, but it was "used" because they installed it, knocked the tank over, and cracked the plastic lens, so they switched it out for another new one. It hadnt actually been used for any period of time.
Thoughts? Suggestions? (I'm sure Sciplus probably has them right there, with my luck. I *always* fail at searching Sciplus, I always use the wrong search terms. I know about the 36807 CO2 SPLITTER but from what I understand, that's not a primary regulator, right? That just goes inline to add 2, 3, 4 more on the end? Or is that actually what I need, and I'm just a idiot?)
Edit: It fell apart. After looking at the pieces (they make so much sense now!) it is JUST the body that is broken. The screw has seized inside of the body, all the other parts seem to be Okay.
Any sources on just a screw & body?
(that sounds dirty. )
