Propane stove repair CT/RI area

Propane stove/oven repair in the CT/RI area.

Who would you trust to repair and test a propane stove?

Easy enough to take off the boat and bring to them.

Thanks.

Rob: Have you checked with the local propane suppliers? I believe some suppliers do repairs.

Re: Propane stove repair CT/RI area

They are remarkably simple machines. What's wrong with it? ie.... door broken off or won't light? I suspect the later, but some here could probably help trouble shoot.

If it is a Force 10 and you need to remove the burners then be prepared to have to drill out all retainers and tap oversize. Alternatively buy all new burners and retaining screws.

Ask me how I know this.

Re: Propane stove repair CT/RI area

I removed my EnerRoyal King stove today. I had been worried about a very, very, very slow, hard to detect propane leak. So I have been very careful to close the tank valve when done cooking. If I left the tank valve open and shut off the stove, over a period of an hour or so the pressure in the lines would start to drop.

One and the SCAREY bit it that the fitting for the oven valve to burner had backed out.

Two is there is a problem with the oven valve, it appears frozen.

Three is that it is probably a very good thing that the oven valve was frozen closed, but maybe this is the source of my leak.

Everything else works great.

It needs a good scrubbing so I'll take it apart and see what happens.

Google search has not come up with a manufacturers website. PARTS??????? Help. PARTS?

Re: Propane stove repair CT/RI area

Bring it home , scrub it up, rig up a hose from the grill( be creative) slather some soapy water around and check for leaks .
Next call south shore yachts , they know everything c&c and might have a line on who has a stash of stove parts. The valves and burners are most likely sourced from a outside source from the stove manufacturer and might cross reference to a another stove .
If you need someone to sit on your deck and watch the stove for leaks while emptying your liquor cabinet ... I'm in, willing to do my part.

Re: Propane stove repair CT/RI area

Yikes, that's a lot.

Unrelated to the stove, do you have a powered solenoid at the tank? Closing the tank valve is good practice, but if the solonoid is working properly, no defect at the stove should cause a leak.

As for the stove, do you think those issues are worth fixing, as opposed to going new?

It's a thousand bucks for a new stove from Defender....YOU could do more damage than that from my bourbon collection. Thanks for the offer. Now go to bed, you have to work in the AM.

Sticker shock on the price of a new stove, they are just silly. Just the oven valve is jammed up. Hopefully I'll be able to find new parts.
