HOW TO RESET YOUR QCC REGULATOR
The QCC regulator has an Excess Flow-Limiting Device for safety that restricts gas flow should a leak occurs between the regulator and the appliance.
However, it can also be activated if you open the cylinder valve and the appliance knobs are already turned on, or a newly filled cylinder is reattached to the appliance.
In these cases, a quick rush of gas to the appliance activates the Excess Flow Limiting device causing a low flow of gas and underperformance – a nuisance factor but easily corrected by resetting the QCC regulator.
To reset your QCC regulator:
- First, ensure the barbecue hood is open, or your appliance is at least 1 metre away from any surrounding walls or surface.
- Turn the gas cylinder valve off all the way.
- Turn all appliance controls completely off.
- Disconnect the regulator from the gas cylinder.
- Wait 30 seconds before reconnecting the regulator to the gas cylinder.
- Conduct a leak test on the connection using a soapy water solution and ensure no bubbles appear before proceeding. If you see gas bubbles forming, turn off your gas and contact your nearest Gasmate retailer.
- Slowly open the gas cylinder valve all the way. Do not use excessive force at the fully open position to avoid damaging the valve.
- Ignite the appliance as per the manufacturer’s instructions.
