Howdy and Welcome to the Forum :texas: :salut:

Are you speaking of the Knob on the Tank or the Knob on the Grill :?: :scratch:

Doesn't sound like the Tank has any problems. It sounds like the problem is in your Grill. Probably a washer or connection or valve that isn't tight enuff or is defective. You might try checking all the connections for proper tightness. If you are very careful you can use a lighter or soapy water (the leaking area/location will form a bubble at the leak) to find the leak but beware of gas accumulation when using a lighted match or lighter. Just be Careful, OK ?

You might even consider getting a "professional" to check this out for you !!
