Pilot

Customer (PF13LQN120): 

I just setup the burner but the pilot constantly goes out.  What am I doing wrong? Or is maybe a defective pilot?

Please adjust the pilot flame length to about 1 inch.   It will not stay lit if you allow too much gas going through it.    

Customer

Thanks that worked

Do I have to light it all over again each time for manual PowerFlamer propane 160 stove?

Inquiry

Hello, I am interested in purchasing a Powerflamer 160. I wanted to ask about the manual vs. electronic ignition first. If I purchase the manual ignition, will the pilot light stay on if I turn off the heat (e.g., between dishes), or do I have to light it all over again each time? Thank you.

For manual stove, the pilot flame can stay lit for you to turn off the main burner between dishes.   You don’t have to re-light it every time.

don’t understand how to turn on the pilot

Customer (PF13L160EI): 

I have the wok and have been using it. I don’t understand how to turn on the pilot without having to use an external flame? Could you please help.

For your stove, the right knob is for electronic ignition.   After the tank is turned on and hearing two clicks or wait for about half minute, you can turn the right knob by about 90 degrees.  Along this 90 degree turn, you should hear hissing sound indicating gas coming out from the ignition small copper tube.  By 90 degrees turn of the knob you should hear a click sound from the piezoelectric within the electronic ignition head.  At the same time, you should see a spark at the tip of the ignition small copper tube.  By 3~4 tries you might be able to get one spark to ignite the gas to a flame to shoot to the top of the main burner.   Hope this helps.

pilot light remains lit?

Inquiry

Does the powerflamer 160 with the manual ignition still have a separate pilot light that remains lit? Trying to decide if I need electronic ignition since I’m perfectly happy to light initially with a lighter.

The PowerFlamer propane 160 manual one has a pilot that can remain lit when the main burner is off.

Is there any modification to the tip of the pilot light?

Customer (PF13L160): 

Is there any modification to the tip of the pilot light that would make it easier to light and keep lit? The control valve is too sensitive and the flame is small and blows out frequently.

Can you look at 2nd video at this link https://outdoorstirfry.com/?page_id=768 to see if it helps?   I agree that a small flame at windy condition outdoor will be difficult to remain lit.   In that case it is better to light the main burner before cooking for every dish.  We will try to improve on how it can be lit in next generation.  However I don’t think we can solve for the windy situation.  Let us know how it goes.
