I've had this happen with brand new o-rings before. It happens. Either the o-ring was made a little bit too small, or it's damaged slightly. The tolerances on these parts are so freakin' small, I'm honestly surprised it doesn't happen more often.
I would try another new carrier o-ring. Chance are that will fix the problem.
