Bad threads on fitting....propane bottles not able to screw in
I have the q220.....Looks like the threads on the fitting are bad because neither of my 2 14.1 oz propane cans will fit......Also, the adapter hose which is included with the stationary cart, will not catch the threads.....brand new grilll, never been used

Dryer should have come with a bag of orifices with instructions. If not, ask dealer. Switch out orifice (threaded brass fitting with a small hole) in the dryer's gas valve and and adjust regulator (threaded screw or knob) on the valve according to instructions.
Hi, I'm supposing it's the thread in the sump pan which is stripped, otherwise you would just put a new plug in it .. several options. Temp / get-you-home repair -1) try wrapping the plug with PTFE / plumbing tape and screw it back in .. 2). replace sump plug with one with a taper thread .. 3) make plug out of plastic wine bottle cork and screw it in until the end is through the sump boss so that it can mushroom out, it would be a temporary fix but shouldn't leak .. ..
Permanent alternative fixes, 1) replace sump pan ..2) drill out pan boss to next oversize, tap and fit same size plug .. remove sump braze/ bronze weld boss threads and re-tap. you can also drill out and fit a thread insert but I personally ouldn't choose that.
The easiest solution to this problem is to remove the screw securing the wire tank holder in place, and then just bend the holder a little bit wider so that it will fit the slightly larger 16 oz green tanks found in the camping section of most stores.
You can even buy buy a hose connector adapter for it so that you can hook it up to a large home barbeque type propane tank if you want. See the following consumer reviews of that unit for more details and ideas:
Virtually all soap/lotion bottles have threads on the top of the bottle and are designed for initial installation only since all if them are refillable by pulling up on the pump head. Grab the bottle and twist to the right. If it will not tighten then the threads are stripped out and complet dispenser replacement is required. Grohe does not sell either the pump assembly nor the bottle separately.
Not sure what country you are in, so I am unsure that the same conditions apply.
The gasline from the meter must be interrupted. Propane bottles connection pipe can then be brazed to the copper line . By law a propane regulator must be fitted between the bottle and the gqas line going to the dryer.
This must be fitted by a licensed gas fitter ( plumber) so if any problems occur your insurance will pay out on fire or other faults.
Placing the propane bottle line directly to the dryer without a regulator and inside a building is dangerous and unlawful, as most dryers are not vented correctly to deal with propane.
There are a couple of different connection types. Quick connect. normal screw type and wide screw. Adapters are available at most hardware stores. Unfortunately using adapters creates another location for a gas leak. It seems the lpg tank suppliers have a deal with grill manufacturers to change fitting types and force the end-user to repurchase equipment.
The threads on a propane grill are left hand threads. You would turn the handle as if you were trying to tighten a normal thread. Normal is righty tighty, lefty losey. This is righty to losey for your BBQ bottle.
