It probably has a left hand thread, try screwing it the other way.

Bad propane gas bottle - is it possible to get bad gas in new propane bottles?

The supplier's bulk propane tank either is not equipped with a moisture filter in the discharge line or the filter is ineffective.

Received new Maytag Gas Range. I have propane. . After switching the brass aperture to the propane side, there is no fitting to connect to gas line 3/8" female to 1/2" male the 3/8" has an odd thread

The odd thread might be a left-hand thread; fuel gas connectors often are.

As well as switching the air bleeds to propane you need to ensure the right gas pressure is being delivered to your stove.

A local plumber's merchant or similar should be able to supply the fittings you need.

How to convert a whirlpool dryer from natural gas to propane gas

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.

How can i fix stripped oil drain plug on toyota alvalon

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.

I love,love,love my baby webber. I bought it when they first came out. I can only use the tall, blue propane bottle. I seen some where that they were using the short, wide, green one. My wire guide...

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:

Thank you and good luck.

My Grohe soap dispenser leaks under the sink. The bottle simply hangs off the pump. It looks like it should screw on the dispenser but there was no nut. Is this correct?

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.

How do you get into the dryer to change the natural gas connector to a propane connection?

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.

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Regulator does not fit propane gas bottle bought from garage. Botle seems to accept only a screw thread

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.

Propane tank release

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.
