It seems to be a tank valve problem. Screw it on my BBQ grill and it leaked there too. Is there a easy fix for this? Or change the whole valve.
There's about a 1/4 tank of propane
If the 'valve' is bad, it can be changed, but if it is only where it threads in, fix that. Close the valve. Have no flame around. Unscrew where hose attaches to tank. Put on teflon tape, get the YELLOW type
(see below). Tighten hose to tank.... tighten a little more.... Get some soapy water. open tank valve and check for leaks.
I have changed out valves on 30lb tanks and it is something that I would NOT recommend that you do yourself if your not used to don't such things.
