Leaking butane cylinder


Recommended Posts

A few weeks ago I was using butane when I noticed the flame indicator on the fridge had gone into the red.  The stove burners wouldn't light.  Luckily I had a propane one to change onto.  I left the butane on the ground overnight.  It was rained all night and, next morning, the gas outlet was full of water and bubbling away.  With zero pressure in the cold butane cylinder, the pin valve had not closed.  As the cylinder warmed up it started leaking.  I depressed the pin briefly and this allowed the pin valve to close and seal.  Has this happened to anyone else?  The air temp never got below 10 Celcius.
