Default propane gas bottle problems

Hi the propane bottle we have with our gas water heater won't work unless we press the safety switch on the connector has anybody else had this problem, or any idea why it is doing this? there are no leaks and all connected correctly.
thank you

I don't think I've seen a safety switch on the connector - where exactly is it? On the bottle, the tube or the heater? Does it have form of electrical connection? How does it perform the safety function? Sorry about the questions but this is new to me and I've used such bottles for years

Cheers

Hi the safety switch is on the regulator, we managed to get it to work by lowering the gas pressure on the boiler, thsnk it was drawing too much gas and didn't like it

That just might mean you have the wrong nozzle on the boiler - they are different for various forms of gas (LPG, Propane, Butane, Natural etc) - probably should find the manual and look at the burner, it'll be marked.

Cheers
