    Other than freezing, what would kill it?

    Replacement fired right up...

    Is the needle pushed all the way to the otherside of the "stop"?

    They go for no reason at all sometimes and other times they last as long as the machine.

    I hear frying it in the Las Vegas inferno is tough on them. :winky:

    Did it still have glycerin in it? Vibration?

    excess vibration or a solid shock can unseat the internals, used to happen relatively regularly on horticultural spraying setups.
    ie I'd replace a gauge about every 2 yrs on a high use unit

    I bought this guy off ebay. No idea if it's going to work. A fraction of the price. Hopefully it doesn't fly off and hit me in the head. Screenshot_20180402-175129.png

    If that is pic of exact 1 you bought it says its for air pressure.. It may work perfectly fine as pressure is pressure. I dont know if they're made differently for air vs water pressure?
