I get a old Optimus 11
Clean it up
I fire it
What’s wrong with my 11
Have you clean the jet?
What did you do as maintenance?
The flame ring is not fitted, for a start, and the vapour stream from the jet is pointing at an angle. You could clean up the face of the jet with a fine whetstone or needle file. That should straighten out the flame.
And make sure the jet is properly tightend
Thank for all answers.
I changed nipple the flame regularly, but always weak.
It seems possible that the burner needs to be de-coked.
There are posts that describe how this can be done.
