Installing a new propane cylinder

If you suddenly find that your grill’s propane cylinder (which is sometimes also called a grill tank) is empty, there is no need to panic. You can replace it by following these easy steps:

  1. Put your new cylinder into your grill’s storage compartment.
  2. If your grill has a restraining bolt, make sure you tighten it.
  3. Install the pressure regulator to the valve on your cylinder and tighten it.
  4. Do an inspection for leaks. You can do this by spraying the cylinder’s valve and the grill’s regulator with soapy water.
  5. Once you have sprayed, open the valve to see if there are bubbles inside. If there are, you may have a leak or a loose connection. In this case, close the valve, make sure all the connections are tight and open the valve again. If you still notice bubbles after performing this additional test, you might have to replace the hose or grill tank.
