Why would my propane shut off?

In the middle of using my propane today, it shut off completely...no flow.

Yet I had just under half a tank. In fact, I thought maybe I was empty, but when I went to fill up, they could only put 7.3 gallons in!

My batteries were getting really low, so I'm guessing it's an electrical problem? Possibly a fuse on the LP ignitor?

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Have you checked your CO dector? If it shut down due low voltage, your propane shuts off.

Silly me...that was it exactly! The LP detector (down low on the floor) had to be turned off and back on. I'm guessing that it shut off due to low battery, or something fluke-y.

Thanks for the clue!

also watch the gas solenoid valve , they go bad all the time .when co det alarms it releases the 12 volt to the valve causing it to close. you will see the valve is hot to touch because it is engaged all the time. i am on 2nd one i plan on installing a 12volt on/off switch at control panel so i can turn gas off manually. also saving life of gas solenoid valve
