Hi Guys,

I have a Spinflo two burner gas stove fitted to my Cub Brumby Camper. I have an intermittent fault that occurs on either burner in that after releasing the control valve after lightning it goes out. This has happened from new, but only intermittently, now it seems to be constant however it changes from either burner.

Any ideas?

Check under the burner plate where the jet screws in and clean it out. Mine did the same thing and I found water underneath blew it out with compressed air and it fixed the problem

Hi Lindsay,

Thanks for reply, but I am sure there isn't any water as the stove has not been used for some months and I just decided to check it out before our next trip next week. Ill keep on looking, will advise.

Sounds like it may be a fault in the Flame detection system. This checks that the flame is still burning and if it can't detect a flame it shuts off the gas.

Need to take it to a qualified gas fitter. Would it be under warranty still? If so ring the manufacturers Aust Agent first.

Mine was the same I rang Cub and they said ring the importer, I rang them and they were closed Cub then said take it to a licenced gas fitter as it was probably the thermal detector. It was over Christmas and the stove had not been used since July. It would not stay alight when used but it sometimes was intermittent. That is when I took the top of the burner off and found water in the housing that the jet screws into. Blew it out and no further trouble.
Try the simple things first.
Funny isn't it people will pull their brakes apart then go down the road at 100 KPH.without a worry, but get pedantic about a simple gas stove problem.

Hmmm there's probably a reason why it's illegal to play around with Gas, but not with your vehicle brakes, wonder why?

If its the same as my Spinflo, you need to keep the knob depressed for 5-10 seconds after lighting to prevent it going out.

Hi,

Yes I know the lighting procedure, but after the 10-15 seconds it still goes out, but only intermittently.

If there is no water in the jet you will probably have to have a look at the gas detection connection.

Mine had a wire going to each knob from a spike sitting next to the burner.

On two of the knobs, the wire, with a metal male spike attached, had not been fitted tightly into the socket. After a bit of re-shaping I got them to lock in.

The problem was getting access underneath the stove. I eventually had to pull the stove out and dismantle the top plate. Bugger of a job but it fixed it!

Agreeing with what was said above, you need to see a qualified gas fitter for sure.

Our old Spinflo did the same thing, but it wasn't too much of a hassle to fix.

Good thing newer vans don't seem to have this problem, was checking out a few at the Bendigo Leisurefest last time we were inMelbourne and saw one of these: http://roadstar.com.au/caravans/daintree

Was the kitchen remodel I've been wanting for my house for years!

Best of luck with your Cub Brumby.
