How do I adjust the flame on a MGC5430 gas cooktop? Flames are too yellow and cause black soot on bottom of pans. Doesn't seem to have an air shutter adjustment

Is this unit set up for natural gas or propane? New stoves usually come with ORIFACES for both gasses. They would install between the on/off knob and the burner tube under the stove top. They may be tapped to the under burner area of your stove. If you lift your top stove cover you may find them. If you don't find them, you may need to purchase the correct applications for your stove. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

How is air supply regulated in wood burning stoves?

To regulate air flow, there are damper devices built into the stove, flue and stove pipes. Keeping the air flowing correctly through a wood-burning stove is essential for safe and efficient operation of the stove. Fresh air needs to enter the wood compartment to provide oxygen fuel for the fire; as the fire burns, the smoke must be allowed to rise through the stove pipes, and exit through the chimney.

Regulator on colman stove 425 doesn't shut off fuel

If you mean it keeps on shooting out gas when you turn the knob, that sounds like the valve has a problem, likely a tiny piece of dirt in it. I am not sure there is any fix other than to take it out and clean it, or replace it.

If for some reason you are sure it is a regulator problem, then just change it for a new one - available at many stores that sell Coleman.

Clogged regulator?

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

1994 Starcraft pop up. My gas line must be clogged. We trouble shot it and can only get a little flicker from the stove. Tested other tank and regulator. Would opening lines and blowing out with compressed...

My buddy just had the same problem, the only way he got more pressure was a new fuel supply which consisted of a small bottle near the stove. We never did find out what caused the fuel to stop. But he had no pressure at all. And it worked fine before. I would try blowing out the line, then try it without the regulator. The 20# bottle is not that powerful, just crack the valve to get it going, the regulator is set for about 3#, They make adj reg. Thye also have rubber lines with shut offs and reg on them. Hope this helps.

Gas won't flow through range

might be a clogged line, could be your diaphragm in the regulator that is bad, you will need to disconnect the regulator where you hook up your gas line to the range then from the burners blow compressed air through them, I would suggest replacing the regulator, should cure the problem.

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
