Troubleshooting a grill isn't difficult. Close the propane outlet valve at the tank. Disconnect the tank, and get it out into the open.. Crack open the valve and make sure that you have a burst of gas pressure. (Careful here, you don't want to have a bad day. Point the opening away from you.). If you are sure that you have a good cylinder/gas and valve, it may be your regulator. Hook it back up and try for gas at each valve. Leave the lid up/open. You should be able to hear it if it is coming through one of your valves. (I should caution call here again.... Open only one valve at a time, check for sound, and close it. Wait two minutes, and try the next valve). You don't want to inadverdantly create a pocket of gas that could flash on you, if it found a source of ignition...let it dissipate, then try the next one, etc..Don't try any one valve for more than 10 seconds. If you are unsure that you heard something, please , follow the two minute rule. Should it be your regulator, replacements are readily available at "home hardware" type stores (Lowe's, H/Depot, etc.) and are easily replaced.
Hope that this was helpful to you.

I would look at your pressure. My guess is it is too high. The cooktop is designed to run 10-14 iniches water column which equals .36 - .5 psi. If you were running higher than this you could have damaged components in the cooktop.

Just hooked up new propane tank and grill won't ignite either with starter or matches

Turn gas tank off and disconnect from grill. Check burners to ensure there is no blockage and reconnect tank.Open gas tank slowly, some grills have a sensor to detect leaks and automatically shut off gas. Opening the tank fast can cause this safty device to falsely read the sudden gas flow as a leak. If you still can't light the grill check all fittings for a leak using soapy water.
