We just picked up our 2013 Scamp
13 last weekend. Its in great shape but has not been used much ever. That said it needed some maintenance that had not been done in years. The heater would stay lit so I cleaned out the intake which was full of mud from wasps and fixed that. The water tank flame was not blue but a lazy orange so I cleaned that and now that works. Fridge propane
pilot would not stay lit so cleaned the burner. Looking at the diagram, the burner jet may be missing. I don't think it was not on the end of the gas pipe unless its firmly attached there. It did not appear to be in the burner. There were bug parts in there though and I cleaned all that out and reassembled everything.
I turned the control to high like the instructions say and tried to light
with the electric piezo but it would not light
but I was able to get the pilot to light
with a flame. Stopped pushing down on the control and it stayed lit. Success! Or maybe success. I heard the sound of gas hissing. Seconds later flames were coming out of the vents above the vent you open to access the fridge
controls. I quickly ran to turn of the tank and the flames went out.
Any idea what would cause this? We are heading out this evening to camp with our new Scamp
and I am wondering if its safe to use the stove and heater?
