    This description below was common with the older screw on regulators and bottle valves

    (It sounds like the bottle had some air in it, it can happen if the last user runs the bottle enpty and leaves the valve open, the change in teperature over a couple of days will suck a little air into it.

    The cure is to take the bottle outside clear from any dangers of fire on open the bottle for a few seconds.)

    I suppose it could have happend if the regulator was left on the bottle and open.
