PF13S160El hose change question

Customer (PF13S160EI/CarbonSteelWok/CastIronWok):

I have the PF13S160EI can I change the hose from the red rubber hose to this: KIBOW 0~30PSI High Pressure Adjustable Propane Regulator w/8FT SS Braided Hose-Type1 (QCC1) and 3/8 Female Flare Swivel Fitting – with Gauge for Forge/Foundry

I like the look of it better for my outdoor kitchen and also I need a longer hose.

Also is there a video that shows how to operate the electric ignition? Thanks!


The hose assembly on amazon has a 3/8″ swivel female fitting.   This can’t fit directly to the valve assembly on the PF13S160EI.   The fitting on the stove valve side is a 3/8″ barb connection.   You will need to make a conversion between a barb and a swivel types.   One way is to cut the hose and plug into the stove valve barb inlet directly.   When use, you will need to turn the regulator at its max pressure.   Also this hose tank connector will limit the gas flow and limit the stove power to 130kBTU/Hr according to its description.

We don’t recall making any video on how to use the electronic ignition.  The valve that does the electronic ignition is on the right hand side.   With everything connected and the propane tank valve open, you should hear hissing sound coming out of the ignition pipe when you slowly turn this right side valve counter clockwise.   You will need to turn it almost 90 degrees in order to hear a clicking sound and see a spark.   Once the ignition pipe ignites and gives a flame toward the main burner, you can turn on the left side valve to ignite the main burner.   As we mentioned in product description, this electronic ignition may not be reliable.  It might take a few tries to ignite.   It is recommended to have a long nose BBQ igniter handy nearby in case it fails to ignite.

Let us know any further question.
