I just posted a question about resetting the regulator on my Weber Genesis II propane grill here. There is no gas flow and I am unable to reset the regulator.
My next idea was to just replace the regulator and I went to a big-box hardware store and purchased a replacement regulator with hose. However, I am unable to remove the old hose.
The lower hose is going to the old regulator, the top tube goes to the main burner valves and the side tube goes to the side burner valve.
I am unable to unscrew the hose from the block, there is just no give. In fact, the block use to be straight up and down; I have bent the mounting bracket. I have tried with a vice lock on the body of the block (over the side tube) and even pulling/pushing between the two wrenches gives nothing.
I have also tried spraying WD40 on the junction and waiting several hours and that changed nothing.
I have examined the threads on the new regulator tube and they are standard threads ("righty tighty, lefty") so I think I am turning in the right direction.
BTW, the regulator tube came attached from the Weber factory.
Anyone have any suggestions on anything to try? Am I missing something?
