CO2ART Pro SE

I've started having an issue with my CO2ART Pro SE after switching out the empty bottle and wonder whether this is a common issue and whether there's something I can do to resolve it? However I adjust the output pressure, when the solenoid is closed the output pressure gauge gradually creeps up to ~70PSI. The solenoid then fails to open I imagine because of the pressure differential. To get it to open I have to loosen one of the screws on the solenoid block and give the plunger unit a nudge to allow a bit of the CO2 out and reduce the built up pressure which then allows the solenoid to open again.

Does anybody know what's going on and whether this is resolvable?

To be honest I've not been at all impressed with this regulator. When I first received it the solenoid valve didn't close off fully and they needed to send a replacement plunger unit. The needle valve is also a bit rough with fine tuning difficult and the slightest nudge putting it out. The significantly cheaper regulator I brought from AliExpress for a smaller tank seems to have been more reliable and easier to use.

So the black valve on the front makes no difference to the output pressure when you adjust it?

My reg has been fine since I've had it, though I agree the needle valve is a 'chocolate teapot', and is well worth replacing or bypassing.

Well it seems to have settled down a bit now. The output pressure still builds to slightly less, around 60 PSI when the valve is closed but it is managing to open now and settles back down to ~40 PSI. The needle valve is rubbish, need to work out how to replace it.
