    Hi and thanks for joining the forum!

    I have a Optimus nova from ca. 2005. It has been a bulletproof stove. However during the last trip the fuelhose "clamp(?)" broke of and it is leaking. Picture attached.

    Have tried to contact Optimus via email, but no answer.

    I have a newer backup nova stove, but it has a different hose connector.

    If anyone know where I can get a replacement fuelhose with the CEJN connector let me know! I live in Norway

    Kan du ikke sette på en ny klemme? Evt. bruke en liten slangeklemme, som disse: Slangeklemmer, 1-ørede, 5 stk.

    Evt. prøve hos TESS om de kan fikse en klemme. Jeg har ikke sett disse til salgs noe sted på lenge, tror ikke du får tak i den. Du kan prøve fogas.se, sende de en epost.

    English: I suggest to have it repaired (with reference to some Norwegian sources). I have not seen these for sale in a while. They are not listed at base-camp or at fogas.se.

    I can confirm these hoses are regretfully no longer available. As Tron suggests, it should be fixable by a hudraulic work shop. The clamping is pretty standard.

    TESS has a limited stock of small fittings - the Norwegian shops with most small fittings and fasteners on shelf seem to be TOOLS - I've been hunting connections and sealings several times around the Oslofjord area.
