Hi everyone...

I'm using the Milwaukee regulator and have had no problems for the past 4-5 years, but recently I noticed that although it should shut off since it's on a timer, it's still going as in the bubbles are stilling going though in the bubble counter and obviously through the diffuser inside the tank. I do hear the regulator give off the "click" sound whenever it shuts off.

I've since shut off the co2 on the main tank, let the excess co2 in the regulator bleed out, unplug it and plugged it back in before the timer turned it, but it still does the same.

I assume I have a leak somewhere but I have no idea to even know where to start looking?

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

You were very fortunate that your original solenoid lasted so long. Mine quit working in less than a year, and I replaced it with one from Rex Grigg, which worked for the next 2+ years with no problems. Your description is that of a failed solenoid.
