Question about Thermos Stainless Steel Gas Grill
The regulatory is making a hissing sound from the vent hose. Can I adjust it or does it need to be replaced. The unit is about 10 years old
The gas could be leaking from the threads or the hose. Get a spray bottle with soap solution (Windex will work too) , turn on the gas (outside only) and then spray the hose or fittings in the suspect areas. If bubbles appear in an area other than the threads, you will probably need to replace the hose.
The usual source of leaks is where the hose is cripmed onto the fittings with the threads. If the threads only are leaking, the fitting can usually be removed, treated with a pipe thread sealing compound (available at most hardware or home improvement stores) and then re-assembled.
Whichever method is used, check for leaks again after the repair is complete.
