Mine has seals both on the bottle and the regulator.

Only for the grill that we have in Italy, the ones here use Swiss bottles.

That is indeed the case (i.e. the grill was shipped from abroad). Many thanks. I will stop using the grill then until I buy this thing!
Or better get a new regulator, with a Swiss fitting. As an unsuspecting person might leave the adapter on the empty bottle and screw on the a new bottle in an unsafe manner.

Migros (and most other outlets which sell gas grills) has 50 mBar https://www.migros-service.ch/de/e/9...ler-50mbar-1-4

I already have such a thing on the grill hose. Shall I try to remove that then?

Re: Gas Grill Newbie Problem

We have two gas grills and we cover them and leave them outside all winter with the gas tanks as well. They work just fine the following season.

The major challenge is taking care that they are protected from strong winds.

Re: Gas Grill Newbie Problem

Hi again,

So I tested with liquid soap, and there were bubbles coming out of the area inside the red rectangle of the following image



, which is actually a hole by design, it seems. Is this indeed the DE/CH incompatibility thing? Any help on what type of adapter I need?

Many thanks
Best

Re: Gas Grill Newbie Problem

That's the regulator, and the small hole is a vent hole. i would imagine the small valve that prevents leaking is not working so you'll have to buy another one. However, if the bottle is completely turned off, there should be no leak.

You can also try this - from memory:
Turn off the burners
Close the gas bottle
Wait a few minutes
Open the gas bottle and wait a minute
Light the grill
Check the regulator

If no bubbles - cured
If you still have bubbles definitely a faulty regulator. It has no replacement parts and can't be fixed so you'll just have to buy a new one.

I used to own part of a gas bottle supply business in South Africa so have some experience of this.

If you get bored with grilling you can toss them a fish.
