I use disposable 600g canisters from machine mart. The regulator adaptor has a rubber o ring in it. It appears to be perishing, but is not replaceable it seems.

Is this a possible reason that the canister has only lasted 6 weeks instead of 6 months as usual?

Or is a leak elsewhere more likely??

It will probably come out if you use a wooded toothpick or something non metal to poke/pry out from it's recess it sits in. But check that is the cause first, with some soapy water. Looks as if that seal provides a seal onto the cylinder, but also on the valve pin? Might be a leak on either path.
