Default Up Aqua Co2 diffuser not working

I bought an up aqua co2 diffuser from ebay, one of those supposed "knock offs" of the GLA atomizers. It worked well the first day I put it in. I disconnected my system to repair the regulator and when I put it back together, gas simply would not come out of the diffuser now matter how much I opened the needle valve. I switched bubble counters, check valves, tubing, pushed up the working pressure all the way up to 60, nothing. I thought it might have been because I broke something in the regulator so I tried it out on my other regulator I currently use on another tank. Nothing. The bubbles would be cranking out and then it would just stop.

My theory is that I left it soaking too long in the water without any gas coming out of it so it essentially become "clogged". If not, what could possibly be wrong with this? I bleached it and am in the process of drying it right now and if it doesn't work still and I can't find another solution, I will be forced to buy a replacement GLA one.
