stove problems

Ok I went to fire my stove up in my compact jr. Cause I haven't messed with it since I bought it cause the po told me it had a leak somewhere soooo... I put some gas on it and it did have a huge leak...in the control knob for the pilot light gas just blows out.. its a three burner traveler with an oven... I had another older four burner wedgewood I put it in and it did the samething gas just blows out the control knob for the pilot light...so I went to tank and it has a high pressuare regulater on it ...ain't I suppose to be low preaaure? Or could I have the regulater turned up to high but even when I turned it down gas still came out of the control

You need a low pressure regulator for a stove-top. If it's the original regulator-should be replaced anyway.

Propane regulators for RV are usually dual stage. I suspect the high pressure marking is indicating where the high pressure line is connected. That's where the hose from the tank should be connected. If the propane system hasn't been used for a while it may take a bit to get the line purged of air and everything working properly. Sometimes I have to hold a light on at the burner for a couple minutes before the burner takes off.

Most RV cook tops don't have a pilot light.

If it was really leaking gas you'd smell it.

I would suggest that you take it to an RV shop to check out.

WHAT EVER YOU DO DON'T MESS WITH THE REGULATOR SETTINGS.
