    Try another regulator if you have one.Check all valves are fully open.

    if you have rubber pigtails they have been known to liquify the rubber, the resultant goo blocks the regulator. Just something to test.

    is the reg higher or lower than the bottle tops?

    if lower then theres every chance the reg has been contaminated.

    or it could simply be a fault on the reg.

    Check the isolation valves located under your cooker.Could have been knocked by something if you store stuff under there.
