No Propane flow

Recommended Posts

Hey guys. So I just filled up my propane tank, and hooked up the regulator and no pressure. I tried to open it very slowly since it hasn't been used in awhile, but no luck. Right when I open the valve, I hear a little gas come out but then nothing, so I'm thinking maybe a bad regulator? Any advice is appreciated!

Make sure everything is turned off before you open the valve.

I have seen some older propane fittings that are too short to push the tank valve open. The newer tanks have a valve to shut off the flow if there is no fitting in the opening.

It's pretty common for the oils used to stink up propane to clog regulators and propane lines. You probably need a new regulator
