I have a question for you guys. I'm setting up my old regulator setup and I'm having a few issues. I left water in the bubble counter when I shut the system down over a year ago. I got pressure on the high and low side, but the solenoid didn't work. I took off the needle valve and found water in there. I cleaned that out and plugged it back in. The solenoid now works, but when I reinstall the needle valve it does not allow CO2 to flow. I'm guessing there some build up around the valve. Is there a way to open the needle valve and clean it out or do I have to replace the whole thing? If I do have to replace it, does anyone have the number for Milwaukee. I'd like to replace it with another valve that has the bubble counter fitting.

Thanks!

Either way I'd have to replace the needle valve. I tried raising the pressure and unplugging/replugging the solenoid with no results. I'll try again.

Thanks Trenac. I couldn't find their information. I just sent an email to them about it. I'm guessing a replacement is necessary. I was hoping to have this thing setup.

For anyone else storing a used regulator, drain the bubble counter and blow any water out before storage.
