Not another bloody "air in my beer line" thread..........

I'm hoping someone can help steer me towards my CO2 leak.

I don't force carb. I carbonate and serve at my desired pressure.

I have short beer lines with in-line flow controllers which have served me well for many brews.

My taps and lines are all fully contained within a chest freezer. i.e. open the freezer lid to pour with all hardware nice and cool.

I occasionally see a bubble or two in a beer line but nothing which has caused me problems before.

So, after dicking around inside the chest freezer shuffling kegs and moving lines, I come back after a couple of days to find all gauges reading zero.

I have just hooked up a new bottle and one beer line is filling with bubbles after each pour (each rather foamy pour, at that). Would my leak and bubbly beer line be related? So far I am not having any success locating the leak with soapy water.

by no means an expert but sounds like a leaky keg to me(being the keg with the air in the line) when were the seals last done? did you use keg lube on the seals? I have one doing the same thing, but know it's over due for new seals ... so taken it off the gas, now on the to do list.
