I was going to brew today and when I turned on my propane tank I heard propane coming out of the regulator. I turned everything off and waited for 10-15 minutes and tried again but no luck. I know these regulators are finicky but how do you reset one? I tried all afternoon to get it working and I finally gave up. I have only used this regulator for 2 brews so I hate to think its life is over. Any ideas?

To reset it you should be able to just turn the reg all the way down for a couple seconds. You will usually hear a little click as it resets itself. When mine trips, I don't notice any gas coming out of the regulator.

turn the gas off then give it a light tap with the handle of a screwdriver. use the handle so there is no chance of spark. I have had this happen years ago.
