Noisy pressure regulator

Why after a month does my regulator vibrate and have a high pitched hum, increasing in volume as more gas is used? This is a normal outdoor gas grill with a 20 pound cylinder.

This is on the Weber site, under support. I have been experiencing the same problem and have not used it because of it.

Humming or whistling from the regulator: Outside temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, and the gas level within the tank may cause the rubber diaphragm inside the regulator to vibrate, making a humming or whistling sound. Although this sound may be alarming, this is NOT dangerous as long as it is not accompanied by the smell of gas. If the humming sound persists, a change in atmospheric conditions will eventually stop the vibration.

    Not true. I have tried repeating the regulator, tried different days with different weather. Still have the hum.

My car makes a droning or humming sound around 2000 rpm along with vibration but it goes away as soon as I increase the speed or come to a stop.


could be the timing belt tensioner. with the timing casing removed place a socket extension bar on some metal then to your ear as it will help you locate the noise. be careful tho. failing that big end shells i would check. hope this helps

You may be listening to a slightly noisy differential or the Tyre's....If they are off roader's they sometimes buzz....To check the diff keep it in gear and give normal gas when descending a hill and then, with the vehicle in gear lift your foot from the gas pedal....If the noise increases to any notable degree, its the diff....You can carry out the same test by disconnecting each of the shafts in turn and repeat the test....When testing the front diff, don't forget to engage the 4X4 drive or you wont go anywhere....You've said the sound is not high in volume, I'd think you can leave it...As an after thought have you checked the oil in the transfer case? Its not the same as the gear box and has a separate filler?.

Barbeque is making a loud high-pitch noise. Can't


The diaphragm inside the regulator is vibrating; that is what is making the noise you are hearing. You could go out and buy a new regulator, but first I want you to try something. What I want you to do the next time you light the grill is to not open the tank valve all the way...only open it about 1 1/2 turns and light the grill. If the noise goes away (which, most likely, it will) then the easiest way to correct it is just to not open the valve all the way. Normally, all one needs to do is open the valve halfway and the grill will get plenty enough gas to give you a really hot cooking area.

Or, you can go get a new regulator.

There is a high pitch that people over approx age 30 cannot detect. My son and daughter complained of a high pitched noise coming from our gas grill, but I could hear nothing. I turned the gas tank off,...


What they are hearing is the regulator. There is a diaphragm in the regulator that is vibrating due to the rush of gas flowing through it. This is easily corrected. First, the next time you light the grill, turn the tank valve only one quarter to one half of a turn and light the grill, once the grill is lit, if you have trouble bringing the grill to the temperature you want, you can open the tank valve more and the noise shouldn't start. The reason the noise won't start then is because by that time, the regulator's diaphragm is at the temperature of the gas flowing through it and, subsequently, will not vibrate. If the noise starts again, you can go to just about any home improvement store and get a replacement regulator.

2004 Chrysler Crossfire 25,000 mls auto, road hum noise


MOST of the hums after a while come from the diff as the back axle does the driving and almost all its life runs the same way except when going in reverse ,is the rear diff meshing and worn on both the crownwheel and the pinion and the humming gets slightly louder the faster you go and almost goes when almost stopped and this can also be the slight vibration you get so get the diff oil drained and refilled and check if there is any metal in the oil when drained if so thats your problem But it will last for years like that..Let me know how you get on RON

How do I increase my ring tone volume on my Moto Razor .?


You can set the length of your incoming ring to in the Call forwarding portion of the phone. Usually, it is set to 25 seconds. It can go as high as 30 seconds. To set the ringer to be longer or shorter, it goes by 5,10,15,... set of 5 increments. up to 30.
I would also recommend to use a factory set ringtone, set the profile to LOUD or OUTDOORS. With vibrate option on. Some downloaded ringtones don't play as loud.

High Pitched Humning Noise


It is the regulator trying to vent off with a restriction. As long as it is working it will be ok to use but I imagine its days are numbered.
