Hang on...Thought I should contact A&H (the other contact in this thread) by phone. Talked to Bob who was VERY helpful. He has very few parts, but basically talked me through a service, and offered to work on it if I couldn't do it. So...I have options. I'll post the outcome.

Couldn't get the burner to work properly, so I sent my burner manifold to Bob at A&H. He serviced both burners for around $140. Said it is a quality stove, and should last a long time. Haven't received them back yet, but if I don't post again, everything went fine!

Good luck.

FWIW, I wish I had just replaced mine and kept the old one for parts. I had to replace two valves, the oven thermocouple and various other parts for a grand total of $500. Of course it was one piece at a time with the most expensive and non returnable parts ordered first.

My stove is essentially brand new now so It should give great service for a very long time.

Unfortunately, my experience with A & H hasn't been good. They didn't send the burners when the said they would. When I received the burners, one control knob was broken into three pieces, of which I could only find two in the box (???), and the copper manifold was badly bent. Unlike the manifold, the box didn't show any damage to speak of. I bent the manifold back so that it could be reinstalled. The really bad news is that I was able to prime and get flame out of the left burner for about a minute, but now it doesn't work at all (as when I sent it)! Bob has been very nice, helpful and apologetic, but somethings definitely wrong here.

A & H came through! Bob walked me through using a piece of 20 Gage wire to clean out the needle orifice on the burner and it's working perfectly. Still a lot of unanswered questions, but the stove is working great! I have a schematic of the stove which Bob provided if anyone needs it (file type wouldn't download on Sailnet).

It's a pressurized alcohol Hillerange?? If so, I wouldn't mind having a copy of the schematics. I have the same one.

Yes, I have it but can't post it on SailNet because of the file type (it's in Adobe). PM me, and I'll email you a copy. If anyone knows how to convert the file and post it, that would be great.

Also were you successful I'n obtaining replacement parts?? I located the Graphite Packing for Hillerange Alcohol Stove. I got it custom made. So there should not be anymore leaks from the valve stem.
