Re: Shipmate Gimbaled Gas Range



I just picked up a Shipmate 882G. My oven knob refuses to turn as well. Is there some sort of lock on them?

The typical stove top knob controls on these old Shipmate stoves are RobertShaw .... PUSH IN the knob before you turn it - safety feature. ;-)

Re: Shipmate Gimbaled Gas Range

I too have an old [c. 1972] shipmate gimbelled stove [new to me] Owners before always used small 1 lb camping propane tanks. I want to install a fixed 5 lb tank in an air tight remote locker with overboard drain in the laz. Is there anything I should know? Type of hose, reguator, etc.

Re: Shipmate Gimbaled Gas Range

Propane hose comes in standard lenghts. They have a standard 1/2" (if I recall right) NPT fitting on each end that fits the stove and the regulator or solenoid. Use teflon tape. There should be no fittings or joints in the line between the tank and the stove. With your tank in an external locker, you will also need a solenoid valve at the tank that is controled by a switch at the stove, so from the stove, you can cut the gas off at the tank and let the propane left in the line burn out before shutting the burner of oven off. You'll also need a low-pressure (as I recall) regulator. Marine supply places usually carry all the parts you need.
If you have room for a bigger tank, a lot of people use 20-pounders.

Re: Shipmate Gimbaled Gas Range

To VallelyJ

Good evening. A follow-up request to an earlier message exchange if I may.

Last year I posted a message describing my search for documentation on my late '60s Shipmate Model 885G - 3-burner gimbaled stove. You were kind enough to respond that you had an original users or tech manual and thought you might be able to make a copy available to me.

I'm simply writing back to ask if your offer is still open.

Many Thanks

Mark

Re: Shipmate Gimbaled Gas Range

Mark, I am the John, who works at Sailorman, who also is Gearbusters on e-bay, who sells parts for Shipmate Stoves...

I can e-mail you some instructions I have made, as well as a set of the Original Instructions...

My e-mail address is UltimateAccuracy@aol.com

For those of you discussing the Oven Control Knob not turning, that is an indication the Oven Control needs replacing.

There is no push to turn on the Oven Control, on Shipmate Stoves, only on the Top Burner Valves...

I am working on getting my listings back up on e-bay...

John @ Gearbusters

Re: Shipmate Gimbaled Gas Range

My stove oven has a lever type knob that says push in to turn. This is separate from the oven temp control. It looks like a fuel shut off lever. It won't push in or turn. Can it be disassembled to clean or is it replace only? Will try to get a picture of it today to post.

Re: Shipmate Gimbaled Gas Range

E-MAIL me a picture, sounds like the oven/broiler select valve... and yes you can take it apart... it uses special gas valve grease, to lube and then reassemble. Try your local LP or NATURAL GAS, BULK Supplier or Home stove Repair Shop...

Re: Shipmate Gimbaled Gas Range

Thank you. I just got to the boat to do some work. That is the valve oven broiler.

Re: Shipmate Gimbaled Gas Range

I had a Shipmate on my previous boat and got rid of it. I have never seen one with a flame failure shut-off (thermocouple) and pilot lights are verboten per ABYC.
