Question about Grilling
Two new full propane tanks were tried but did not work. The old propane tank still works on the same grill. The new propane tanks were rhino tanks. Also I tried a third new one today of a different make and it did not work either. The only one which currently works is Manchester propane tank. Why could it be?

I had this problem when I turned on the burners before I turned on the tank, to fix it I had to turn everything off. Then turn the tank on and wait about a minute for pressure to build in the lines then turn on the burners. Hope this helps

The new style
OPD valves have a small brass ring located in the female
fitting on the LP tank. Over time this ring can work loose and then it
does not allow the male fitting to fully depress the OPD valve thus
reducing your gas flow
Using a small flat bladed screw driver tighten the small brass ring This should solve your problem
IF not you might want to remove the cap (white) on your regulator and try slowly adjusting the regulator, make small adjustments and try the BBQ My Weber if I set the front and back burners to MED I get right at 350 degrees in 60 degree outdoor temps. Adjusting the regulator will take some time to get it right but If it is not your tank it is most likely your regulator out of adjustment

Here's the problem and how to solve it. When you opened the valve on the tank, you did it as you normally would. However, the new OPD Valve tanks will often shoot a heavy load of gas to the regulator and lock it up.
To hopefully solve the problem, do the following:
1. Turn the tank valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.
2. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank.
3. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow), until the valve is fully open.
Then light the burner farthest for the tank first. Did the burner light and does the flame height
look correct? If so, light the remaining burner(s) the same way. Do all the flame heights look
correct? If so, you solve the problem. Remember to always open the tank valve Very, Very
If that didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the Grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly. You can pick one up at any hardware store or home center that sell grills and accessories for about $30.00. Take you old one with you for comparison purposes.
Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know and Happy grilling!!
