Gas Stove top burners unsteady, go out when open

Hi all,

I have an emo stove on my Lagoon 420 and the burners will ignite ok but when I turn the full gas on the burners go out. When I light all the burners they all flicker in tempo with one another suggesting I have some supply line problem I'm guessing. I have tested all the lines with soapy water for leaks and havent found any. Any ideas for next steps?

Thanks!

Rob

Sounds like the supply is irregular pressure or flow. Most likely the regulator needs replacing. If it's cold where you are and you are using butane then that will cause problems.

I assume the tank level is sufficient. What you describe is what happens to us when tank liquid level gets near 5%. The regulator starts surging.

If the tanks are full is there frost forming on the regulator anywhere?

Has anyone done anything recently to the stove or LP system like cleaning or refueling?
