Magic Chef Maytag Stove/propane problem.

Well, we just did our first trip in the new 2008 win. 29R. We went to a local airshow in Arlington Wa. A great little event if you are interested in airplanes.

Most went well, a few little glitches that resulted in only 30 or so items that needed fixing or additions to make life easier. The biggest one is our Magic Chef Maytag three burner stove. This is our third RV so I know how to purge the propane lines and clean orifices etc (did that stuff already). What happened was it seemed an awefull long time to get the burner going and then the flame seemed so small. The rear burners hardly had a flame.

So today I did all my research, came down with a plan and not much changed. I think I know the next step but Iíd like to hear your advice. BTW, the sound is bad so basically Iím pointing out how the back burners are barely lit and that the front burner is pulsating.

Please take a look at the video and let me know what you think the next step is.

Thanks in advance

Posting from an iPad. Grrrrrr

Video is probably too large. Iím working on an iPad and might have to switch to my desktop to edit the video size. Too late tonight but will do it tomorrow.

Would that be the pressure regulator on the tank or at the stove?

I don't know if the stove has a regulator or not. If the water heater runs fine on propane then it is contained to the stove.

My thoughts too.

As soon as you mentioned the regulator I looked at it and sure enough there is one on the right side. Iím just in the process of checking out pricing. If itís cheap enough Iíll put one in and reply with the results.

Thanks

just letting you know ....

That I'm not leaving you hanging. I've tried a few things suggested to me that didn't work. Here is a cut and past as to where I am now.



Well i tried what you said a few times. I think the first time I was too fast. I also tried purging the lines over night then turning it on slowly but it hasn't changed. I did notice that each time i slowly turned the main valve there was a little spurting sound and something closing into place. I gather the internal workings of the main reg.

I also turned on the HWT just to confirm there was good pressure and there is.

So now I'm looking online for a new regulator and it isn't as easy as I thought.

First off, its listed as a Maytag Reg. RV20LTEF. The RV20 stand for the type and the letters refer to an internal vent, hi heat operating location and that it isn't adjustable. So it has to operate in a high heat location and it needs 3/8 NPT out and 3/8 NPT in (although mine has an adapter to 1/4 copper incoming pipe).

I have been in contact with a local supplier that will sell me a maytag replacement for $140 CDN. :(

I have also been in contact (telephone tag) with Maxitrol trying to see if there is a non-brand name equivalent regulator. Still trying to find out.

Anyone know of a better way to go about finding a new reg.?

Thanks

Do you see that little thing on the right side where the copper tubing attaches? That is your regulator. I suspect it is bad.

Propane Problems

Had similar symptoms, low flame pressure at stove, fridge would show "no flame" and hot water would not stay lit. Had a quick connect installed by dealer at propane tank, and they did it with copper line fixed to frame. Covered it with loom. Flex in frame in travel and road stress resulted in a minute crack in line. Being outside with wind blowing ,did not get the telltale smell. Winnebago in Forest City located problem ,did it right and no more problems. After regulator checks out, use the soapy water spray to look for leaks.

Regulators

Most regulators, although not sure on the really small appliance regulators have a place to measure outlet pressure from the valve. On propane that is usually 10 to 11 inches water column (a little under 1/2 psi) If the pressure is low there, and your other appliances are working fine, you can almost guarantee it is the regulator. This should be measured with some flow through the regulator. If that is in the normal range, I would for a kink in the line aluminum tubing feeding the manifold for the 3 burner valves. If you light one burner and then light a second, does the first burner get less flow? If so, you have a line kink or the regulator has "frozen" in a nearly closed position.
