The stove may not demand as much gas as the refrigerator, I had a defective regulator and the furnace wouldn't work properly (kept popping). Safest way to check for leaks is soapy water (CW has a solution). I would soap the refer. orifice, no bubbles no gas, small bubbles low pressure.

Grumpy is right. There is no liquid in the low pressure gas lines, it is propane in a gaseous state. The pressure in the low pressure gas line is only a few psi. No where near enough for propane to be in a liquid state.

nbhybrid.. Sorry my friend, but going to have to disagree with you on this one.. Propane is gas turned liquid under pressure.. It doesn't boil at any point. Also once the gas leaves the pressure regulator it turns from a liquid back into gas. There is not enough pressure in the lines to turn it back into a liquid form. Most likely as most have said a simple leak somewhere in the system..

LP boils at -44 Degrees F.

lol.....I wasn't trying to prove it. I cleary said in my post it was "my" theory. . hard to imagine that there are that many people with leaks in their system. I didn't count but it was at least 5-6 just in this thread alone. I never have had an issue with my system personally.

If my tanks have been off I simply open them and my fridge has fired every time the first time

Whenever I feel a need to purge the lines, I just turn on a burner on the stove until the air turns to propane and light it. Then let it burn for a minute or two.

I had an Eagle 215SD from 1993 to 2011 and I always had to "purge" the lines after the FW sat for any length of time. I think it is just something that is unavoidable, even if you turn off the gas at the bottles. Even my newer, 2012, HT has that problem.

I am quite sure it has more to do with the propane changing from a gaseous state back to a liquid state as it sits in the line.
I never thought about that - could very well be the problem. This forum is the greatest!

Thanks guys for all the responses

If you are really concerned that you have a leak and can't find it with the soapy water solution test, you can always take it in to the dealer. They should have a "snifter" that can sniff out even the smallest detectable leak.
