Please help - Snow Peak Gigapower stove temperature control stopped working on 07/04/2011 16:48:08 MDT Print View

At least I can turn the gas on and off but that's it. This is a fairly new unit too. Anyone have this issue before and know how to repair it? I took out the control and spindle unit and put it back in but other than that I'm clueless.

Thanks

Not quite sure what you mean. If the gas on/off valve works, isn't that all the control you need in terms of the temperature? Normally, I open the valve wide if I want a hot flame and turn it down if I want less heat. Or does the gas just barely come on, and that's it?

Josh,

You really need to add some details to your post. Did it malfunction before or after you took it apart?

You should be able to adjust the flame all the way from a bare simmer to a full throttle roar. If you can't then there is something wrong with the stove valve and the manufacturer should make the problem good; especially with a fairly new stove. I would contact SnowPeak customer service, explain the problem and see what they have to say.

Sorry for the brief description and thanks to those of you that have replied. on 07/05/2011 23:13:52 MDT Print View

The stove is either at full blast or off. It stays at full blast no matter what position the valve handle is in. I only took it apart after it stopped working correctly.

Was just hoping this was a common fix that someone had experience with. I've got an email out to Snow Peak and we will see what they say... coincidently their US headquarters are just a few miles from my house ha.
