No Gas at cooker

Post by mpbarrett on Wed Oct 04, 2017 5:44 pm

Just arrived at a camp site and turned the gas bottle on, plenty of gas in bottle, but no gas coming out at the cooker. Tried different bottle (new full) and still no gas. Checked that none of the isolation valves are off (all on)  but still no gas.
Any ideas?  Does this mean the regulator has failed or is there some thing else going on?

Was all working about a week ago when we last used the van.
Its a 2011 Symbol.

Do you have water heater or fridge working on gas or are they not working either? If none are working then I think the regulator is your problem.

Yes nothing on the gas is working, Guess its the regulator. Any recommendations to get a regulator near Castleton in Derbyshire?
At least our heating is diesel powered :)

Just to re-check, The gas cylinder is turned on? do you have a cylinder content gauge which needs pressing to activate? Valve by the regulator turned on? isolation valves in cupboard turned on? Start at the cylinder and follow the pipes, check and double check that nothing needs turning on.

Yes to all of that, still no gas. Even tried tapping regulator in case it was stuck. And tried two different full bottles.
Pretty sure its the regulator. Will decide whether to do and get one or live with it (we have the essential an electric kettle so we can make tea) and go for a very windy walk  or drive and try to get it fixed. We are only here until Friday morning.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions.

All fixed thanks to very helpful team at peaklesure in Buxton. Highly recommended, nice people and good price. Bit of a pig of a job as the regulator was pop riveted from the outside of the gas box so must have been there since new 2011.
Thanks

Hi Mike, just called at Peak Leisure for a 6kg bottle of gas and asked if you'd called. They were glad to be of help and were quite chuffed to have been mentioned on the forum.

Perhaps they'd like to offer a discount to forum members?

It is interesting that it failed to safe. I wonder if that is a design function?
