Hi my name is Robert....

Sorry for the delay... Go to the main tank valve and shut it. Slowly open the valve back up, sometimes if the valve is opened to fast the regulator can lock up and you might not get the proper pressure for the LP, just because the other LP appliances are working does not mean the pressure is correct. Slowly open the valve up. Beyond that I would have the Dealer check the LP pressure out with a manometer, if you just get this it is better to let the dealer handle this, if you start taking items apart on the generator you might void any warranty have seen that before. Being a new unit any repairs should be under warranty.... Hope this helps some... Robert
