Assuming you turned the bottle valve to the fully opened position and you have a Solenoid Valve connected to the bottle, did you turn the solenoid on? Most Solenoid Valves are connected to a control panel
that is also connected to one or more gas sniffer/sensors and if one or more sensor is detecting gas (propane or even hydrogen from a "bubbling" battery
being recharged) the Solenoid Valve will not open (although, normally, a audible alarm
will also sound). Of course, the foregoing also assumes there is power to the control panel
and from there, power to the Solenoid Valve. If so, the Valve itself may have failed or been damaged when you removed it to refill the bottle. Fortunately, failed valves remain "closed" as a safety
