  1. Its good to know that when a gas pressure regulator isn’t working properly, the regulator was either not sized correctly or installed correctly. My gas regulator has been not working properly recently and I’m not sure where to start when checking to see if errors are happening in the regulator. I’ll be sure to check how the regulator was installed and the sizing of it.
