Propane, LP, or Natural Gas Regulator Problems


There are many questions involving problems with gas regulators. Most any gas fired appliances will have a regulator somewhere in the system to regulate the gas pressure to the appliance. On natural gas the pressure regulator is often outside, but many stoves and ranges still have a pressure regulator at the inlet also.

On LP or Propane appliances there is a pressure regulator at the source but then also at the appliance. On outdoor grills the regulator is the silver round thing at the tank.
They often look like this.

The function of the pressure regulator is to keep the gas pressure even so that the flame does not vary much when the usage is increased or decreased. The regulator does this by using a small spring and diaphragm assembly. The counteracting pressures work to keep the pressure even. The regulator fails when it gets stuck. They are designed intentionally to fail in the safest mode or in a low pressure state rather then a high pressure. Therefore many problems involve not enough gas rather then too much.

On outdoor gas grills the regulator can sometimes get stuck if the tank valve is opened too rapidly. Or it will just become stiff from the outdoor environment. If the regulator is not letting enough gas through, try shutting the valve and then opening it again slowly. This will help sometimes. If that does not help and the valve is sticking, do not try to adjust the regulator. Replace it with a new one. Trying to adjust it could cause serious safety hazards. I have seen some web sites telling people to adjust the regulator by watching the flame…this can be a good way to get yourself and others hurt.

If you have a range, stove, or oven that is not working right because the flame varies as you turn burners on and off or when the oven goes on, then the regulator is at fault. Once again, do not try to adjust this to make it work, replace it and get it adjusted with the proper instruments to make sure that the gas pressure is right for the appliance.

Pressure regulators come in many shapes and sizes. They can look like any one of these here.

Gas appliances work at extremely low gas pressure. Natural gas appliances often run at 4” Water Column. Lp or Propane at around 10” WC. That means that the pressure of the gas will only raise the water in a tube 4” or 10 “. That is NOT much pressure and you can get that much by gently blowing in a tube.

So, if you are having trouble with not getting enough heat or the flame running very low, the pressure regulator should be one of the first places that you look.

Changed propane tank and no gas comes out. had new tank tested and it shows that it is working properly. Checked connector to make sure it ios properly and securely fastened, but no help


Hi eric sivin...
Sounds like your gas regulator is malfunctioning.
Normally there is no repair you can do to the regulator except to replace it with a new on.
If your lucky, you might have a regulator that you can adjust the gas flow rate.
If your regulator can be adjusted then try turning the screw down a turn or two and try to relight the BBQ grill.
If that did not work you can try to tap lightly with a hammer the regulator valve, sometimes the adjustment diaphram gets stuck and this procedure will make it loose again.
Please take time to rate me

Bought nexgrill 3 or 4 months ago now doesn't get hot enough changed gas bottle and regulator and hose no luck


The new style2_bing.gif OPD valves have a small brass ring located in the female fitting on the LP tank. Over time this ring can work loose and then it does not allow the male fitting to fully depress the OPD valve thus reducing your gas flow
Using a small flat bladed screw driver tighten the small brass ring This should solve your problem
IF not you might want to remove the cap (white) on your regulator and try slowly adjusting the regulator, make small adjustments and try the BBQ My Weber if I set the front and back burners to MED I get right at 350 degrees in 60 degree outdoor temps. Adjusting the regulator will take some time to get it right but If it is not your tank it is most likely your regulator out of adjustment

How do you replace the window regulator on a 04 vw?


Well you can find the window regulator, but you'd probably have to get it at the dealer either way, also this regulator isn't one that you want to try to replace on your own. It has 3 adjustments to adjust the window regulator or the window won't function properly. I don't recommend trying it yourself. You may try calling VW of America and see if they will help you out. They have been known to do that and they have the authority to ok it. I would try that. If that doesn't work you may be able to find a shop capable of replacing it but it isn't an easy regulator to replace, it takes special tools and knowledge of the process and to get the window adjusted right. The first one I did took me about a day to get adjusted right.

Hope helped.

Butter warmer problem


The problem for Butter warmer not working was as I suspected the internal workings of the regulator slider that adjusts the temp for the butter warmer it's self. The regulator intenals get a sort of burnt ember on them from something similar to a couple of positive and negative wires connecting causing a sorf of short. I have an electrical tech nearby who opened up the regulator to find and use a small wire brush and scraper removed the burnt on gum. It returned the warmer to working immediately upon re-installation and is still several years later, working a treat.
I am disappointed to note that in stores we have checked to upgrade our fridge all say that no models have the butter warmer anymore. Hence we are holding on to our fridge.
