How to remove an empty propane tank from the grill

It only takes a couple of minutes and four easy steps to remove the grill tank.

  1. Before disconnecting the propane tank from the grill, ensure that both the grill is turned off and the valve on the tank is closed.
  2. To remove the pressure regulator of your grill, remember to turn it counterclockwise by using the phrase “Lefty loosy, righty tighty.”
  3. Make sure to check whether your grill has a restraining bolt before removing the cylinder. If it does have one, be sure to loosen it before proceeding.

Remove the cylinder from the storage compartment.

How to get your grill tank refilled

Please follow propane safety best practices when transporting your grill tank for a refill. It’s recommended that you either go straight to the cylinder refill site and straight home, but, if you have multiple errands, make the cylinder refill site your last stop before heading home.

It is important to keep the grill tank upright and secure during transportation. There may still be liquid propane inside, even if you think the tank is empty, which could leak if the tank is tilted on its side.

Kindly avoid entering the showroom with an empty cylinder. Instead, leave it by the refill station, then go to the customer service department to request a grill tank refill. When you have completed the purchase at the counter, a Taylor employee will accompany you to the refill station, where the refill will take place. You can then head home with a full grill tank after that.

How to connect the full tank to your grill

Connecting your new tank to the grill is easy once you get home. Simply place the new cylinder into the storage compartment and secure it using the restraining bolt (if your grill is equipped with one). Then, attach the pressure regulator to the cylinder valve and turn it to the right until it’s fully tightened.

  1. To complete the task, please perform a link test by following these instructions:
  2. Apply soapy water to the valve of the tank and the grill’s regulator/hose.
  3. Open the valve on the tank. If you see bubbles, it may indicate a leakage or a loose connection.
  4. Close the valve. After that, make sure all the connections are securely tightened before opening it back up. If air bubbles continue to appear, it may be necessary to replace either the hose or the tank.
