How Do I Reset My Gas Grill Regulator?

Before you replace your regulator, reset it! Regulators have a safety feature which can cause the gas flow to be temporarily suspended under certain circumstances.

Then your burners and try to light. If you still have no gas, it's time to replace the regulator!
