Propane service valve supplies ALL of the propane system and appliances.
Furnace running OK (huge propane demand) and stove working OK then the 'excess flow device' was NOT tripped
Yes opening the propane service valve too quickly can trip the excess flow device which then limits the amount of propane that can flow.....but furnace would not work correctly, stove top burners would not burn correctly, fridge would have issue and so would water heater....would NT just be one appliance and not the others
Glad your water heater is now working but the excuse given doesn't hold water
