On a recent camp trip we had an overnight visitor who left a 'gift' for us on our coleman stove. To remove it I unscrewed the regulator assembly from the stove so I could shake off the tiny turd. I know I should have removed the 1-lb propane tank first, but seeing as I hadn't had my coffee yet I wasn't fully functional (that's the story I'm sticking with). When the regulator was reattached and the burner valves opened no gas was coming to either burner. I removed and reattached the regulator and the propane tank (1. attach regulator to stove, 2. attach tank to regulator) but it still does not pass gas to the burners. Also tried a new tank, same result. When I remove the tank from the regulator, I do hear the the familiar pssst of gas being released. I'm wondering if anyone here is able to help me diagnose the problem. Is there a way to 'reset' the regulator?

Update: Further troubleshooting revealed a broken washer (see pics). Now to find a replacement for that ... IMG_9164.jpg  IMG_9165.jpg

Kit of orings at Harbor Freight or try a old fashioned auto parts store.

So I went to the hardware store and all the o rings (in plumbing) appear to be too thin. What size should I be looking for?
I need to stove end o ring, but while I'm at it I'll replace the tank end too.

Go to the auto parts store and see if they have O rings for fuel systems. Plumbing O rings will not last. They are not made to handle propane.
