I got this regulator about two weeks ago and its stopped working. I got it without the bubble counter so its just the regulator and the solenoid. But now it has stopped working Evil or Very Mad I've only seen it on in the morning at about 7:15 then when I get home from school it has stopped working. Has anyone had this problem? OR does is need the tank to be full?

Check your air line for leaks. If you've got that rigid tubing that comes with some setups it loves to crack. One small leak and your unit may stop working. If you've got that rigid tubing I'd just go ahead and replace it. If it's the same kind I had it'll just continue to crack again and again.

hmmm...

Check for leaks and make sure all your connections are tight. Use something like a pipe wrench or big crescent wrench to tighten all your hardware. Hand tightening isn't good enough.

Other than that the only other things are an empty cylinder or if you put your solenoid on a timer check that.

You can check to see if your solenoid is working by unplugging and then plugging it back in. You should hear it click. (Plug it into the wall to do this. If you use a timer that is in the "off" position it won't work.)

Soooo...is it working? Very Happy

...must...write...longer...message. Which normally wouldn't be a problem for me since I tend to be a bit longwinded at times. Sometimes though, I just feel like asking a simple question like "is it working?"

Soooo...is it working?
