I refilled one of my 30lb propane tanks last week and now the regulator makes a high pitched squeal when running either my oven or propane heater. No problem with stove top burners.

I'm thinking air in the line???

Is there ever a need to "bleed" the gas lines and how would I do it?

I have a typical 2 tank system.

Thanks

Bleed? Simple, turn on gas regulator, go inside and light one or more of your stove top burners. Wait a minute or so, turn off. Done!

Like Don said, simply running any propane appliance will bleed any air out of the system.

My guess is the stove does not consume gas as fast as the oven and heater, and the squeal is related to the flow of gas. If you turn on all the stove burners does it squeal?

Anyway the problem is at your regulator. If your stove works then there is no air in the lines anymore.

Turn off the regulator. Light the stove, after it goes out shut the stove off. Open the regulator very slowly. This helps reposition the diaphragm in the regulator.
Mine made the "squealing" noise also. That took care of it.

Also make sure you open the propane cylinder valve all the way.. But open it slowly.

I had a BBQ that would trip the regulator 'safety' feature if I opened the valve too fast.. I actually had to un-screw the hose from the cylinder and put it back on and then open really SLOOOOW... Don't have that BBQ anymore. [emoticon]

Good luck!

Will know tonight, temps going low and will be using heater. The oven doesn't seem to create the problem and even with the heater it may take an hour or two to start squealing.

Thanks for the tips.
