That is a gas pressure regulator. Its function is to reduce fluctuating and or high pressure (LP or natural) gas at the inlet to a constant, lower pressure at the outlet for the device / appliance.

What is a b p t valve

Back Pressure Transducer Valve, part of the EGR system. The valve monitors and restricts too much exhaust pressure into the intake manifold from the Exhaust Gas Recirculation valve. Vacuum to the EGR valve is first routed through the BPT valve. I unhooked it on my '79 Datsun, don't know how important it is for EGR operation, did not affect operation of the engine.

I have a problem with my Ruud LP heater. The gas valve is model VR8440M2024. Does anyone know what the M2024 means? I have found VR8440 valves on line but don't know if they will work with my unit....

The Robertshaw 720-079 is a universal type replacement valve. It comes with an LP conversion kit. You will probably come out better off using this than trying to locate the OEM part.

How do I turn off the gas to my gas light? I don't want to turn off the gas to my house, just to my light. I don't know where the shut off valve is on the light. I have no manual, the light came...

Somewhere there is a supply line to the gaslight. It could be coming from your gas meter outside and there will be a valve on it. I would start at the first place that you can see your gas line to the house. You will be looking for any tee or line coming out of the main gas line. You will have to follow all lines that you see to determine what device they serve: furnace, water heater, etc. If you find a line that you can't follow or that appears to go toward the gaslight, light the gaslight then shut the valve to be certain.

My valve from the compressor is leaking can I replace the valve or do I have to replace all the lines coming from the compressor

If you are speaking of the tank check valve just replace the valve. I don't know why you would have to replace any of the lines unles they are broken or plugged with some type foreign material.

If you have not been putting gas treatment in your gas to treat the ethenol they have been putting into the gas its a good chance its the needle valve in the carborator. If you live in a state that does not add ethenol to the gas disregard this advise.

My propane tank still feels partially filled (half a tank) but the flame and heat don't seem to be generating what they should even when turned to high, is there a clog in my system? Where should I...

The chances are that the orifice for the gas is blocked. If your grill has been outside it is possible that spiders have clogged the valve. Spiders are attracted to the propane gas odor. Remove the line at the valve and turn the gas on to make sure the valve is clear (do this outside). If the valve is clear, check the line from the valve to the burner jet, Check each piece in order from the valve to the jet. This should clear the problem.
Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks

Hi there, I have a Weber Q 300 Natural Gas. I have an outdoor gas outlet which have been capped at the end. I don't know how to connect it to my Weber. Do I need a gas fitter to come out? Please help.

Yes, you will need a gas fitter or gas technician to complete the hookup, because the gas line has been capped and you can be sure whether or not it's still an active line. In addition, you will also need (if you don't have it already) a 12' long, rubber, quick disconnect hose the runs from the pipe to the grill (this is a Code Requirement), as well as a gas line line shutoff valve on the end of that exposed pipe, as well as all the necessary pipe fittings.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!
