Auto Propane Valve Failure

My propane valve, Marshall #250, failed. I have suspected it wasn't right for some time, but it quit flowing propane and wouldn't switch to the full tank even manually. Also, the active tank wasn't empty either. It still had about 40% in it, but no flow. I replaced the valve with a CAMCO brand and all is working fine again.

I thought it interesting that the Marshall #250 was recalled in 1994 and the company went out of business, but it is being made again by another company now. There is probably no connection today to the 1994 issue, but it is interesting.

I think mine is doing the same thing. The indicator is not indicating correctly anymore.
