CO2 mist suddenly stops

Just filled up my canister and reattached the regulator. Now every few minutes the CO2 mist suddenly stops all together, and takes another fifteen minutes to start up again. This has happened three times today since I hooked it up again. Thoughts?

The pressure builds up until check valve / diffuser cracks open, releasing the pressure.
Check your working pressure and nudge it up a bit.
