What do I do about a frozen-up tank?

Propane tanks can show signs of ice while in use. Sometimes tanks sweat when the regulator is feeding the propane too quickly, or if there is a high level of humidity. That moisture can ice up in some situations.

In extreme cold, a tank can also “freeze up” to the point that the liquid propane inside isn’t boiling and making enough vapor to feed the appliance.

Here are a few tips that should help:

  • Keep several extra tanks on hand
  • Consider switching tanks out when you use 1/4 or so of the propane
  • Keep tanks in the sun or in a warm area (but not indoors)
  • Don't allow snow or anything to build up around the tank
  • Don’t cover the tank with a blanket or pour water over it
  • Turn your grill or appliance down as much as possible
