Forceio stove

The stove will light but will not stay lit when you use two options like: 2 burners, one burner and the stove...only one will stay lit, HOW do I get it to work properly?

Re: Forceio stove

thermocoupling fail. needs replacement. i chose to rid self of that stove and have a mexican stovetop made for my boat with replace-able parts i can deal with myself.
first my 3 burner force 10 did that, so i traded for a 2 burner force 10, then that did it, and i am having new stovetop made for me.
i fyou have access to a force 10 owners book, you can buy the items required via interwebzzz, as i recall. good luck.

Re: Forceio stove

We've been thinking about replacing our ancient stove/oven with a new Force 10, so I'm interested to see how this turns out. I don't understand how turning on another burner could cause a thermocouple to fail, so I was wondering if something is blocked, restricting gas flow, or if there might be a problem with the regulator so that not enough fuel is available.....

I hope you can solve the problem, and get back here about how you did it.

+1.

The FAQ at force10.com says:

Q: Why does the burner go out after I release the knob?

A: There are (3) possible issues:

- The Control knob may be hitting the control panel – Remove the knob and try lighting the burner.

- The Thermocouple is either dirty, has a poor ground connection or has failed.

- The solenoid inside the valve has failed.
