Of course you already checked the fittings for tightness so that the propane didn't leak out ... is it possible that you didn't get a full fill on the propane tanks? It takes us quite some time to bleed the air out (and the lines don't stay full from week to week occasional use) of our propane lines ... so, I generally turn on the furnace as it uses the most propane. You can hear the refrigerator, hot wanter heater, and the furnace as they try to light before the propane gets that far into the lines.

Our change-over valve has worked as it is designed to:

(1) Open both tanks.
(2) The switch lever points in the direction of the tank that is being used. The indicators will show Green (i.e. has propane in it)
(3) When that tank is empty the indicator will turn Red (i.e. tank is empty)... The valve should automatically begin taking gas from the other tank...(but will not if you have not opened it in advance)
(4) BUT you must manually change the direction of the valve lever to point toward the new tank that is now being used. When you manually turn the lever toward the full tank, the indicator will turn green again.
(5) Turn off the empty tank, remove and refill...replace and open...and then repeat in the opposite direction.

This way you will never run out of propane.
