Gone through two tanks too fast so I made sure I screwed the valve to the tank tight so it must be leaking at other end. I look under and it's not a screw in type (crimped line). I guess I need a new hose/ reg. assy. Model 463666507. Less than a year old. Paid roughly 80 bucks at Lowes. How do I fixed this w/o spending 70 bucks on a new Valve/Hose/Regulator, p/n 80005802. Thanks.

If you are using a 20# propane cylinder, most likely you have just turned the tank valve on too fast. There is an excess flow built into the hose fitting, so when you first turn it on to an empty line, the sudden surge of gas causes the valve to 'check' or close. Turn off the tank valve, disconnect the hose fitting from the tank valve and then re-hook it up again. Now very slowly open the tank valve until it's completely open and then try lighting it again. If this does not fix it, then make sure the hose fitting that attaches to the tank valve is tightened all the way, so that it pushes open the pressure seat inside the tank valve. If the hose is still loose or can still swivel, despite the adapter being tight, then your plastic adapter may be broken and is not tightening all the way onto the tank valve or your inner tank valve black rubber gasket is missing.
check and see if there is a rubber gasket inside of the piece you screw on to the tank sounds and looks like you are not getting a good seal. if you do not see a rubber gasket inside of that black nob go to lowes or home depot tell them your situation and i bet they have a new attachment piece or a gasket hope this helps
to undo the tank its a left hand thread re connect tank turn on valve on top of tank slowly make up some washing up liquied with some water and make bubbles and brush this on the gas joints this will show if you have a gas leak .
I would turn the gas on and spray soapy water at the fittings if bubbles appear that is where your leak is. if it is leaking in the lines. turn gas off un screw fittings and wrap them with teflon or what some call plumbers tape they are both the same thing and very inexpensive. if it is at the valve on the tank I would get a different tank
Most probably, the tank-to-bowl gasket has not seated properly. They are usually neoprene, and tend to bight on the bowl socket rather than to slide into the socket where it can be compressed properly. Remove the tank bolts and look at the gasket. Re-install, using a water based lubricant on the bowl side, with the gasket installed on the tank flange. Wiggle the tank and gasket back and forth a few times, and the gasket will start properly into the cast socket on the bowl. Install the bolts and tighten to finger tight. Wiggle the tank a bit more, and level the top. Tighten the bolts uniformly. You mention that the flush valve was hand tightened only. If this gasket is not snug (a bit more than hand tight), a leak can occur there as well. Best regards, --W/D--
Your frustration is common because the new tanks all have a safety feature built into them which is a pain in the you know what. Unscrew the tank to reset the safety valve and then screw it in again. That should result in the valve being in the open position and working for you.
I switched to the new style 20# tank with the new turn-on knob. I couldn't get enough gas pressure to the BBQ burners for all three burners to light or to keep a strong flame on even one burner. The new style tanks have a safety valve on the inside of the tank that shuts the gas off if you turn the knob on too fast because the safety valve thinks there is leak. Shut everything off and then try turning the knob on real slow, especially at first, before turning it all the way on. If that doesn't work (it didn't for me), then replace the large plastic connection valve knob (female end) that attaches the regulator to the tank. Mine was for the old style tank and was black (low pressure). I went to a propane company and had them replace it with a green knob (higher pressure). Took it home and WALA! Everything works fine now. But it was very frustrating trying to figure why I couldn't get any gas to the burners after buying a brand new tank. I hope this helps solve your problems.
Be sure the thermostat or heat dial is set properly.
If the appliance has a pilot light, be sure it's working.
make sure that you connected the pipeline correctly
open the faucet of the tank
try to fire it up ? working ? good...
NO???? close everything(faucets,plugs...)
your new tank that you connected is empty....
have a good 1
