One of the jets on the stove in our van has started to cover the rails over the jet with black soot, think its called "coking".

Only one of the three is doing this. Does anyone know what is causing it? Has anyone else had this problem and if so how did you resolve it.

Any info would be appreciated.

It looks like you have a faulty burner, some debris may have dropped in there causing a slight blockage,....heres why....
Perfect combustion yields carbon dioxide, water & heat. Incomplete combustion yields carbon monoxide, aldehydes (both deadly) & soot (carbon). Any time you see soot, something needs to be adjusted. We need air, fuel & ignition to have combustion, the other two burners are getting the correct quantities of all three requirements.

Get it checked out asap, which make of stove is it btw?

hi percy

my guess is not enough oxygen , if the burner isnt right lift it off and clean out the little holes , if theres anything like food crumbs and other debris in there vacum them out , if theres anything other than light surface cossosion replace the part .

Agree with the answer and cause as above. If any of you are old enough to remember primus stoves when camping, the old paraffin type I mean, a go with the 'pricker' always solved this problem :wink:

If you can lift the top of the burner off, some do some dont, lift off have a look and wash, if it wont come off dont mess as its a air / gas mixture problem as already posted and you shouldnt really play yourself. Widnes Caravan Centre or Harringtons should be able to sort for you
