The weather is finally starting to warm up, and you know what that means. Grilling season is just around the corner and will be here before you know it. That means now is a great time to check propane tank refill off your to-do list so you’re ready to cook up some feasts and festivities for your family and friends. You don’t want to find yourself without enough gas the first time you’re itching to get out and use the grill.

Removing & Replacing Propane Gas Cylinders

Before you bring your 20-pound propane grill tank in for a refill, let’s review how to safely remove and replace the gas cylinder on your propane grill. To remove the cylinder, take the following steps:

  1. Double-check that your grill is turned off.
  2. Find your propane cylinder. Depending on the design of your grill, it may be behind a door.
  3. Note the location of the cylinder’s tank valve and the grill’s pressure regulator.
  4. Before you disconnect the pressure regulator, make sure that the tank valve is closed by turning it all the way to the right.
  5. With the tank valve now closed, unscrew the threaded pressure regulator by turning it counterclockwise. It’s now safe to remove the propane cylinder. Depending on the design of your grill, the tank may be held in place by a restraining bolt or screw. You’ll need to loosen it to remove the tank.

When it’s time to reconnect your propane tank, simply reverse the steps above. Make sure that the tank valve is closed when you reconnect the pressure regulator. Note: replacement propane cylinders often come with a plastic safety cap over the tank valve assembly. Just remove it.
