    Looks like a nice stove. It may be a fuel problem, have you tried a different regulator/tank?

Just though of something after digging through a number of manuals on various sites--with our stove, we have to open the propane valve, let it sit for a bit--to let the pressure build I guess, before trying to light it. If we don't the burner never comes fully on. Still drives my wife nuts.

Oven sounds like a jet engine


I can't help much...

When a gas burner sounds like a jet engine the chances are the gas is burning inside the mixing chamber.

The gas jet directs the gas into a mixing chamber where it is mixed with the correct quantity of air before being emitted from the burner where it produces those nice blue flames. Sometimes, for a reason I don't know, ignition will cause the flame front to pass through the holes in the burner into the mixing chamber and the jet engine sound is heard. There will still be some flames from the burner but they will be weak and anaemic.

The problem used to be very common in the days of coal gas but it has almost disappeared with the use of methane.

I suggest you remove the burner and ensure it is clean inside and out and is a good and close fit against the gas jet and there is nothing restricting the air inlet of the mixing chamber.

My MSR Pocket Rocket will no longer light. Prior to the complete malfunction, the flame started to become much weaker, and then finally, the burner just would not light. I've removed the rubber o-ring on...


Hi, chances are the jet is clogged - I've experienced this myself on the same stove.

I would leave the rubber o ring alone, the chances of the hole there being blocked are slim, it is more likely to be the outlet jet you can see throught the holes on the riser tube under the burner head.
This tube can be unscrewed - you may need to put something through like a pen for leverage. Once you have done this you can remove the tube and you will see the tiny jet in the top of the brass nut on the knurled base of the stove. Then its simply a matter of finding a thin enough wire or pricker to prod araound in the jet. I have a fine wire brush that works well, although I have only had to do it once in several years.
Put it all back together and you should be back to full power - the whole job takes two minutes tops.
The other thing I did was screw the riser tube back hand tight only - this means I can dismantle and clear the jet when camping if required. It doesnt affect performance or safety. I put a strand of the wire in a blob of blu tak in the plastic case the stove comes with - job done! Hope this helps.

Clogged regulator?


Hello,
Disconnect the disposable bottle and make sure the stove's gas adapter is not clogged with insect debris or something. Also make sure your bottle is not empty by trying another one just in case! Douglas

Top burners are propane. we are used to propane heating really fast. this stove seems really slow. 5minutes to boil litre of water. burners are having hard time lighting.


If it is new fromt the factory, you many have the natural gas (methane) jets in the burners. You will need to check your bag of parts to find the propane parts (LP parts). LP jets allow a different fuel/air mixture to burn at the right heat. Check the owner's manual for details how to make the change.

Please rate me - Good luck.

There is water in your fuel. Drain the tank and flush it out with denatured alcohol. Refill with fresh fuel.

Coleman propane stove problem


The connector for attaching the regulator to a disposable propane cylinder has a sintered bronze filter in the tip of the brass probe tube that is prone to clogging, or the bronze pellets get mashed down over time, restricting gas flow, and this will cause a portable grill or camp stove to perform poorly. The filter is so fine that it takes very good eyesight and bright light to see that it isn't solid metal, or use of a strong magnifying lens. The best solution is to buy a new Coleman regulator assembly. If you are unable to get a new regulator assembly and have the skills and the tools, you can try drilling a very small hole on the side of the probe tube with a #60 drill bit, just below the bronze filter, but near enough the end of the tube so that the hole will be past the plastic seal when the disposable cylinder is fully screwed into place. You should avoid drilling directly into the end of the probe tube, as the end of it is used to depress the Schrader valve in the disposable cylinder to allow gas to flow. A #60 wire gauge drill bit is only 0.040 inch (1.016 mm) in diameter, but makes a hole large enough to supply sufficient gas to a portable grill or a dual-burner camp stove. If you choose to perform this work, the probe should be unscrewed from the regulator body and the Schrader valve core in the probe tube should be removed before drilling. Be sure to clean all brass and bronze particles out of the probe tube before re-installing the Schrader valve core and the screwing the probe into the regulator. Use a removable-grade thread locking compound to secure the probe in the regulator body and don't over-tighten it, so as not to crush the rubber gasket. Allow the thread locking compound to cure for several hours before attempting to use the regulator. Keep in mind that this modification increases the likelihood of dirt getting into the needle valves and jets of your stove or grill, which can cause maintenance problems in the future.1_28_2013_4_49_27_pm.jpg
