Mariner Princess Propane Stove

Greetings! Mariner Princess is no longer in business and our stove needs some adjusting or fixing. Top burners will not light. One burner started to fail before the other one but both have now bit the dust. I don't want to install a new one as I just need to understand these systems so I can trouble shoot it. I have the manual but it's no where near the detail that I need.

I'll start with a cleaning of the area beneath the stove top and check for anything loose.

Propane is getting to the burners per the smell. As time went on...the burners became more difficult to light and to keep lit. I'm unsure if I'm getting enough of or have spark.

Is there anyone else that is an expert on these propane stoves or can give me direction and a place to start?

Mahalo & Aloha!

Re: Mariner Princess Propane Stove

OK, can you light it with a match? Hold the burner knob in...
If that works, the gas is ok. If it doesn't usually the issue is rust in the burner. Take the black top of the burner and clean out any crap in there.
Generally a good clean of the temp sensor and burner, plus wiring connectors gets them going again....
Good luck, these are a great, good quality stove. Unfortunately the original maker has retired and sold the business, and I understand that all the spares went to the tip.... :-(

Thanks Neptune...Hopefully I'll return here with some good news.

BTW...you have a URL in your signature that is not working. What biz are you in?
