Quote from: MountainDon on January 29, 2011, 02:04:17 PMBack to the issue of the propane fueled water heater flaming out.I believe the problem is not one of the heater itself. The problem was likely the cold weather, it dropped to -5 degrees F at one point and was below zero for a large part of one 24 hour period. The cold weather coupled with a partially full small propane cylinder will result in less available propane for the burner. It may have "blown" itself out. That at least is my latest theory after doing some research.Check out this link for what I've learned... Propane Info

That said, the burner controls for the surface burners are not as linear as a more expensive range. That would be my only real complaint. You can adjust down to a tiny flame, but there is a range of knob movement that does not do much. I believe the 24 inch version of the same model is no different in that. I'm used to a wider range (30") so the top seems crowded at times, but the space saving in a small cabin is also important to us. So all in all I'm happy. The stove top pilot lights are easy enough to light as the top hinges up. For off grid use I prefer a pilot light to the electronic ignition. The pilots give off a fair amount of heat though and in the middle of summer that's unwanted. So I'm glad I installed a shut off for each gas appliance. I moved the one for the range up to behind and just above the rear of the range. That way it is easy to shut off the gas and have the pilots off, and easy to turn back on and relight with a butane lighter stick. The oven pilot is not lit unless we want to use the oven; that requires laying down on the floor.
