Open it fully then turn back 1/4 to 1/2 a turn, it will be fine!

Light the torch, see what happens. If the flame looks ok then it's fine. If not then adjust the regulator knob until it gives a good flame. Sorry, long time since I used my hothead Cheesy

The knob on the top of the tank should be full on so in an emergency there is only one way to go.

The big one with numbers that is near the screw in bit to the tank, the regulator, as Gems says, turn full on and then back a bit.
