Default Banjo burner not working with stock hose/regulator - works with swapped out hose/reg

Basically the title says it all. I went to fire up my Banjo burner at a friend's house when his burner wasn't working properly and when I opened all the valves and tried to light it, nothing.

Against my better judgment we swapped out the hose and regulator from each burner (his burner would flame up, it just was really rusty so it wouldn't burn very well) because they looked like the same type. Lo and behold, once we got it all connected, it worked perfectly.

Is this a problem with the hose? The regulator? Both? Any suggestions for an easy fix? Thanks.

Your hose must be faulty. Best scenario is that it is clogged, worst case it that it is leaking.. Either way it sounds dangerous.

I say don't take chances and get the proper original replacement part or equivalent (30 PSI regulator + hose):

Any chance the valve for the burner regulator was open when you opened the propane tank valve? If so, you might have activated the safety valve on the tank. Sometimes just opening the tank valve too fast will activate it.

It is possible, but we tried many combinations of turning it off and on after that. How do you reset the safety valve for a regulator?
