    Ok checked the torch handle fitting and rechecked everything else. The front of the machine fitting, the back of the machine fitting, the whole gas line, the connection to the regulator and the bottle itself. What am I missing?

    Well, just maybe, if your missing the little screen, some crap has gotten into the plunger in the gas solinoid itself.

    That solinoid is a bit of work to get to in your unit. I would suggest removing your tig torch, turn on the bottle, jack up the pressure and with your remote give it a couple hits on the pedal or other controler to hopefully remove the crap that may be in there.

    I don't care for the double gaged regulators, the flow meter ball will actually tell you if its leaking. Often the cheapo gages on the double gage units will leak into the gages themselves and thats tough to do a boubble check on. Most of the times I go on a call to check a system, I'll bring a Victor flow meter with me, to verify the problem.

    ok, thanks everyone for the help. I took off the casing and turns out there was a leak at the bulkhead fitting into the solenoid. I think that was the problem...since I bought it two years ago. Sh*t what a waste of money.

    Thanks again!

    Red face No waiste of money

    You still have the machine.
    A problem I had and I was glad I had the valve on a torch, guy came to get his trailer welded and my gas wouldn't shut off.
    Ended up taking all apart to look inside no that valve ain't comin out easy.'
    I ended up taking gas hose from torch off and blowing a low presure amount of air in and it blew out a pc of dirt out the back.
    Problem solved.
    At least it didn't cost any repair monies.
    Happy welding
