I'll assume you had it purged of air before you had it filled, right? A full 20lb tank should weigh about 35-38 lbs. If so try this: Leave the tank valve closed for a few minutes. Then open the tank valve very slowly. It may have a built-in excess flow valve in the hose that is checking closed and preventing you from getting gas. See if that helps.

I have a Kenmore 14116329 propane grill. The propane tank is full but when I turn on the burners very little gas comes out resulting in a VERY low flame. Is it the regulator or???

It is most likely the saftey check valve in the tank. The procedure is to:
  • Close tank valve.
  • Disconnect hose connection from grill to tank.
  • Wait
  • Reconnect hose connection from grill to tank
  • "Slowly" open valve on tank to release gas back into grill
Through on some steaks

If still a problem replace tank.
The check valve that can cause your problem drastically reduces propane flow in case of an accident and the lines are ruptured
Hope this helps?

Unable to get gas our of 'Blue Rhino" propane

The problem is an easy fix. Replace the current Hose/Regulator Assembly with a new one. They run about $30.00, at home centers and hardware stores that sell grills and accessories.

Once you install the new one and connect it to the gas tank, open the gas tank valve Very Very Slowly (Slow Motion, Slow) until it's fully open. If you don't do it this, the new regulator will lockup.

Hope this helps you & thanks for choosing FixYa.

Noise coming from tank

Yours is a DOT type tank (portable not fixed)

What is the noise? Is it gas coming from the tank to the burner? Hissssssssssss Are you properly connected? Is this a OPD equipped tank? Is there a hole or crack in the hose letting the gas out before it gets to the burner?

Do not examine it with a match!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If your tank is very old, you may not have a OPD equipped tank (is the handle three sided?) Yes = OPD No = old style. Only OPD equipped tanks can be filled in the USA. Old style tanks can leak if not properly connected.

New OPD tanks will not let gas out unless there is something properly connected to the tank. You are NOT fooling around with the 80% valve are you? If you are - STOP. (small screw on the right hand side of the connection fitting.)

If there is any fault in the equipment, connector, regularor, hose or any fitting - get it fixed! One gallon of liquid propane becomes more than 350 cubic feet of highly combustible gas. If it leaks out and gets ignited, at least it will be quick! Dont become the entertainment!

Any parts that are questionable ... replace them!

Please seek additional assistance from your professional propane supplier.

New Tank won't light Weber Grill

Try checking the regulator, this is the round metal piece connected to the gas line. If this is not level flat the valve inside will not let propane flow through.

Disconnect and reconnect hand tight, open slowly, if this doesn't do the trick than tank valve is bad. Another thing that could be bad is your regulator, but I would start with tank first is grill worked before new tank.

Hooking up a pool heater to propane.

A pressure regulator and pipe or hose. Whoever is selling you the tank/propane should be able to help you size everything based on the tank hook-up and tank pressure. The heater nameplate will tell you the proper inlet gas pressure that the regulator will need to reduce the tank pressure to.

The metal tube that connects the propane tank to the unit snapped ON but now won t come off

It has "Ears" on it to prevent it from coming get it off requires pushing in the ears and then sliding it off simultaneously. But then the ears will not snap good into the burner any more...Its meant to stay in after its assembled and just the propane tank is supposed to unscrew and come off. However the tube should still spin to prop the tank in either side for your convenience. its safe to remove and re-install the tank as often as you like.
Its not going to "Spill" but just give a split second "FFFTTT" sound as it is removed.
I hope this helps you out with this...

Propane will not come thru burners

Most propane problems are due to a new valve on the top of the tank. It is designed to only allow a minimal flow until the line is pressured. This prevents fire flair up from broken or leaking hoses. Always turn the bottle on and wait before trying to light a burner. If the burner is on first, the propane will never come out at full flow or if you have a leak in the system, it won't pressurize sufficiently to allow full flow out of the bottle. There is never "air" in the tank.
