No propane

I am puzzled as to why I am not getting any propane to my hot water heater or my external hookup for my blackstone or the oven, the stove is electric. The hot water heater I changed to propane only it trts to light 3 times and that's it. I did have a issue about 3 weeks ago with the carbon/ propane detector going off while parked at home I pulled the fuse waited a while and plugged back in did a test and green light is on. This is the second trip out this year back in March no problem with propane. What else should I check??? Thanks for any help

This mght seem obvoius, but have you checked your propane tank's full? You might have had a leak or open valve that triggered the alarm and your tank was emptied. If tank's full I'd guess the regulator's shot or a pinched supply line.

You may need to close both valves on the tanks and then turn them back on. The valves in the tanks will close if they sense a quick rush of propane. This is a safety feature that is resolved by shutting them off and then back on again. It us usually the worst when the tanks are full.
