Propane Escapes From Vent on Single Stage Regulator When Tank Valve is Opened


Do I need to replace the regulator?


Helpful Expert Reply:

It sounds like your propane regulator has failed. Propane regulators last five to 10 years, then they should be replaced even if they seem to be working OK. They do wear out and go bad, and there are not any user serviceable parts inside. You may find that your regulator has a date of manufacture stamped on them.

The Camco # CAM59013 that you referenced is a fine choice for a single-stage, single-tank system. This will be a direct replacement and is easy to change. Inlet has a 1/4" female NPT connector and outlet has a 3/8" female NPT connector. When attaching the new regulator use tape sealant rated for propane like the JR products # 37207-30025.
