Propane issue

I can't get my stove top to stay lit for more then 10-15 seconds before it goes out. Gas furnace also doesn't blow hot. Thought it was an empty propane tank so switched it with another but still have same issue.
I have a 195bh that only has a single tank.

Any suggestions?

Regulator is replace only.

One thing to try.
Close propane tank valve then "slowly" open it back up again.

temporary fix:

close both tank valves.
loosen both tank connections to "release pressure".
open gas at stove eye and reclose.
tighten both tank connections.
slowly, slowly open the full tank to repressure the lines.
light the stove eye.

works every time for me.

Closing the tank and slowly reopening seems to have fixed. Is this normal or does it indicate a problem?
Thanks for the help Turbs and Surveyor10

You may have tripped the safety valve in the tank. if the lines are empty and you open the valve quickly, it thinks that there is an open line and shuts down. Close the tank valve. Turn on stove until it goes out ( releases pressure in lines) let it sit for a minute or two. Turn off stove. Then open very slowly until you just hear propane entering regulator. Let it sit that way for 30 seconds to pressurize the lines, then open the rest of the way.

What Golfnbike's getting at is if you open the valve too quickly to an empty system you could have triggered the built-in excess flow rate shutoff. That won't reset until the supply pressure is removed.
