Welcome to JA! 1. Turn off all burners. 2. Disconnect regulator from tank and make sure tank is off. 3 reconnect regulator and make sure its tightened. 4. Turn tank on first slowly. 5. Now turn on one gas valve at a time and it should light.

These regulators have a device that limits flow if too many burners are on when the tank is connected

You should always first turn your burners off when completed grilling. If you turn the tank off between uses, then always turn tank on first when starting.
