IF THE FLAME IS LIFTING OFF THE BURNER, THERE IS TOO MUCH AIR IN THE MIX. LOCATE THE END OF THE BURNER WHERE THE FUEL ENTERS THE BURNER. THERE SHOULD BE AN ADJUSTMENT HOOD THAT CAN BE MOVED TO PARTIALLY BLOCK THE AIR INTAKE. THIS WILL REDUCE THE AIR MIX AND SHOULD MINIMIZE THE FLAME LIFTING OFF THE BURNER.
ON SOME SEALED BURNER COOKTOPS, THE MANUFACTURER RECOMMENDS PLACING A PAN ON THE BURNER AFTER LIGHTING TO MINIMIZE FLAME LIFTING.

IF THE FLAME GOES OUT WHEN SET ON SIMMER,
THERE IS AN ADJUSTMENT SCREW IN THE SHAFT OF THE VALVE ON SOME MODELS. REMOVE THE KNOB TO GAIN ACCESS TO IT. YOU WILL HAVE TO OBTAIN A SMALL SHAFTED FLAT BLADE SCREWDRIVER TO MAKE THE ADJUSTMENT.

How do you dry out the stove ignitors? They have


You do this at your own risk, but try holding a lighter flame next to the igniter gap close to the burner and light the burner manually when the igniter clicks. The heat will dry them out.

Poorly functioning Shipmate stove


Hi

Normally pressing red buttons on stoves is for lighting the oven. You press the button, light the pilot light, leave it depressed for a minute and then that heats up the thermocouple, which opens a valve and allows gas to the main burner.

Shipmate Stoves are still in business, so you could contact them. The link also suggests places for Shipmate propane gas stove spares.

Oven burner flame is low


0000000.jpgOn top of that safety valve is a nut. Get a good fitting wrench. Turn on the oven and use that good fitting wrench on that nut. Turn it counterclockwise till the flame comes up about midways of the flame spreader. Don't get the flames too high. Midways of the spreader now. LOL
