It's possible that your regulator is in a vapor lock or the diaghram inside the regulator failed when installing the new propane tank if one of the knobs wasn't turned off when the new tank was installed. Try to clear the vapor lock by turn all the burner knobs off and then turn the propane knob off. Unscrew the hose from the tank and then turn all the burner knobs on.

After 15 seconds, turn all the knobs back off and then reconnect the hose to the propane tank. Turn the propane tank on and then turn the knobs on to try to lite the burner like normal. If no gas flows still, then your regulator failed and the hose that connects to the propane tank needs to be replaced since the regulator is built into this hose.
