|hellosailor||Well...if you have the patience to do it, get your ear next to the solenoid and stay there while someone else starts the system and lets it cook. You should be able to hear the solenoid open, and then if you hear a second "click" and it closes when the system cuts off again--you've pinpointed a solenoid problem.|

|ronspiker||It sounds like a solenoid, but it could be the regulator if it isn't delivering enough pressure to keep the solenoid activated.|

Propane problem: solenoid or regulator?
The gas to my stove on my Beneteau 311 (2000) dies after about 20 minutes. Left alone for ten minutes or so and it can be lit again, just to die once more. Is this a solenoid problem or a regulator problem? Or maybe both? The equipment is, I suspect, original. If either/both needs replacing, does anyone know what I need and where to get it? Thanks in advance for your help.
