Propane Regulator
[Return to Topics]

I have a propane grill that has a regulator with what looks like a little tell-tale hole in it. The other day I was using it and propane was coming out of this hole, which ignited and burnt in a small flame, maybe two inches long. What does this mean? Should I replace it or is something else wrong? Thanks in advance.

Either replace it or have your gas co take a look at it,Sounds like diaphram in regulator is leaking,It should NOT do this,could be major safety hazard.That hole is an atmospheric vent for the diaphram housing,should not have ANY gas coming out there,only minute amounts of air in and out as regulator works.

Dave, I think that hole is the breather hole for the diafram inside that regulates pressure. The fire meands the diafram is shot get a new regulator.

Or you'll have an urban renewal fire.

Sounds like the pilot light, Dave. Either that or it's a ticket to Yankee Stadium from wherever you live.... :)
