Re: Oven doesn't get to tempurature
BWAHHH! No swizzle stick! (rhymes with something that is syn for "turd")! LOL! ROFL LMAO! THAT is because the US Govt mandated so much crap that it is NOT POSSIBLE to conform to ALL the regulations -- I even forgot the topic! I just ignore the government. Let them find me.
Read the gov advisos, see if it makes sense, (and most times it does (like "do not exceed 28 PSI with 8mm LPG hose with a hand made fitting, or 32 PSI with the same hose and a machine fitting").
Oh, and the ABYC Standard for having a solenoid switch in the galley is merely for keeping tards safe from themselves.
To be safe, if the gas is not turned off at the bottle, and there is no solenoid but the stove has a leak--even a tiny one--the LP goes into the bilge and is just as flammable as if it were on the stovetop. So, I would opt to have a solenoid for that reason alone. Red switch on = stove/oven enabled! I can deal with that! I just do not think GOVERNMENT has the RIGHT to DICTATE that I DO THAT! I just think, as I laid out the pros and cons, what happens if you do and what could happen if you don't, that it should be up to the individual to decide what to do.
When I install my gas system, I will have a solenoid.
Meantime, I have a solenoidless Cassette-Feu gas burner! And a microwave!
