    Is the jet seated properly?
    Is there a crack where the jet seats?

    I agree with @snwcmpr about the jet threads not maintaining a seal - or damage.

    A little graphite grease smeared on the threads of the jet before installing it can help the jet create a seal.

    Never replaced the jet in my two, but threads may be different from Swedish stove jets, as fuel caps are not interchangeable with Swedish stoves.
