I can only assume that I have a bad regulator.
What say Ye?
I am assuming here that you are referring to your new regulator.
I am also sort of assuming you have current standard LP tanks with the OPD valves with flow limiting.
You might try shutting off all LP appliances, turning off both tank valves (to reset flow limiting devices, if tripped) turn tank valves back on, then start LP appliances one at a time. I always light the stove first as it is closest to the regulator. It takes a minute or two to purge the air out of the gas lines before the stove will light.)
It's possible you have a large leak in the gas plumbing on the low pressure side of the regulator which causes the flow limiters in the tank valve(s) to operate as soon as the valve is opened. Other than that, yeah, sounds like it might be a defective regulator.
