I installed a 1/4Ē solenoid 0-312psi (approx) , post regulator
, on our propane
system today. Everything worked as far as the control side went, and the solenoid did click when actuated, but the flow at the stove
was minimal. We were only able to run one burner (of 3) at about half power.
The instructions said to install it before the regulator
, but that wasnít convenient for me (I know, I know..), and Iíve seen many installations online where the solenoid is post reg. Also, Iíve read in other Fireboy Xintext instructions that it can be installed after the reg.
I did try venting the whole system, re-priming it etc. but nothing worked. Taking the solenoid out of the system immediately fixed the problem.
What is more likely the problem: bad solenoid or wrong side of reg cutting too much flow.
I havenít seen gas flow specs for 1/4Ē sol vs 3/8Ē sol, so Iím not sure if I have a compatibility issue with our Force 10 stove
All help appreciated.
