As I post the photo
I have changed two nipple
How to do my flame
Thank for all.
Hi @Tantra you need to eliminate possibilities, one at a time.
If you get this pattern with two good jets, it might suggest that the jet is not the problem.
Next test is to remove the cleaning needle, and then run the stove without its cleaning needle. If the poor flame pattern continues it suggests that the cleaning needle is not to blame.
You should then check that the burner is not distorted and that the jet is centred directly under the centre of the vaporisation chamber of the roarer burner.
A partial blockage of the tubes or vaporisation chamber of the burner is also a possibility.
Tell us what you find.
I suspect a very small leak where the nipple seals. Not enough escaping to burn at that location but enough to disrupt the air flow caused by the vapor rising. I have had this happen. I dressed up the seat on the burner.
Look at it with a magnifier with the nipple removed and look for small pits in the brass seat. It can be dressed with a needle file but carefully.
I note you don’t have a flame ring fitted to your burner.
No flame ring doesn’t make the one sided yellow burn. Efficiency is greatly degraded without one but it should still burn even blue without.
I wasn’t implying that the flame ring would fix the lopsided flame; just noting its absence in case he did not have one.
The previous advice is worth following.
I have but I am not like use flame ring
I like flame regularly as flowers.
I agree I always want to everything perfect.
Hi @Tantra please will you confirm that this is a kerosene fuelled Op.111 and not a gasoline Op.111b.
111 vs. 111B
Kerosene I know yet
Four legs and two legs. They are not same burner.
I have many 111. Another 111 stove have perfect flame.
have removed the cleaning needle,nothing happened same as before
Now I have put the stove to the soup water,I hope I can obvious somewhere leak in the burner.
What condition is the screen/strainer/wire mesh in the fuel tube?
Yes I find what was wrong on the burner
Yes it have leak and repair long time ago
Thank you for all
