Stovetop
« on: June 05, 2017, 10:22:57 AM »
Hello,
I have a new coachmen. Had it for a few months now. Suddenly my stove top won't light. I know my propane tank isn't empty as I use it for my water heater and I checked the tank itself. I tried to bleed the line with no results. Any ideas? Thank you!

If you hold a flame next to the burner you're trying to light, does the flame flicker?  Don't use the built in striker.

Some propane cook tops have their own propane regulator located in the the gas line to the cook top...(mine is in the bottom kitchen cabinet to the right of the cook top).

No results when holding a flame to the burner. I will look to see if I can find the regulator. What exactly am I looking for?

You said you've only had it for a few months. Is it stull covered by a warrantee?

Yes it still has warranty. Was just seeing if there was a simple fix that I wasn't aware of before I called them. Just seemed weird that the stove top quit working around the same time that the shower water started becoming hotter and lasting longer than usual. And propane tanks are full. I don't use the stove horribly often so I was curious.

The regulator for my Seaward Princess 2 burner cook top is on the back wall of the cabinet under the cook top.
If your cook top has a regulator there should be a picture, or a drawing, of it in the Owner's Manual for the cook top which will help you identify it.

I'll take a look. I looked in the manual and didn't see anything about it. Once I find it, what am I supposed to do?

Crack the fitting on the output side of the regulator to see if propane vapor is coming out of the regulator.
(Your objective is to find why propane is not getting from the propane tank to the stove burners).

I didn't see anything under or around the stove...
