First of all I really love my new stir ry. I have had a lot of success with every experiment. A couple family members were concerned about a possible leak with the high pressure regulator. I know the hole is there. Is it possible there’s a link? How can I test? Thanks so much.
The hole is there for safety purpose, to vent the gas fuel out if the regulator fails. When you smell gas before starting up the stove, please do not light up the stove, check for leak first. Sometime the gas gushing out from the hole also makes noise, brings to your attention that there is a leak.
