what is problem of flame ?
Help me please
Prick the jet - 0.23mm size jet pricker.
One of these.
Not available in my city !
High ‘E’ string from a guitar or any fine (0.23mm or less) stiff wire.
A steel high “E” string of a guitar can be used to prick the jet.
Or a thin brass wire from a cleaning brush.
Do not force into the jet a wire that is wider than the jet.
There is another problem lose pressure , kerosene come out around tank
Can i use this ?
Before you try to fix the kerosene leak, make sure that it is not leaking from the fuel cap. The rubber washer in the fuel cap must not be hard. Check this first.
If it is leaking from the solder on the tank you will have to re-solder it. Do not use “Auto Bond”.
What do you mean auto bond ? mr tony
Yes. Do not use auto bond.
It will have to be soldered.
@qweer2006 Auto-Bond is the stuff that you showed in your picture. If you have a blockage in the lipstick burner your leak may be an issue of over pumping to try to get the correct flame. If this was done with a "full" tank (above 80% capacity) it would easily bypass a hardened filler cap seal and run down the tube onto the tank.
You can test the stove for leaks by removing the burner, pouring out the fuel (save it), installing the travel cap on top of the tank, and giving it a few pumps. Spray some soapy water on the travel cap and around the filler tube base. Note your bubbles if any. If this doesn't work I have dunked mine in a five gallon bucket of water and looked at my leaks after removing the pump rod. This is how I recently fettled my 96 because I also had a leak in the same area.
On your picture with the flame shot. I noticed that your flame spreader is damaged and possibly upside down. I say that it is upside down because on mine it says "Primus" on one side. I may be completely wrong in assuming that all 96 flame spreaders are alike. I am just making an observation compared to my newer model 96.
Suggestions: You need to check all of the areas that fuel and/or air can leak from (nrv, fuel cap seal, and at base of lipstick burner) to ensure that you do not have a pressure leak. Ensure that your burner does not have an obstruction at the jet area. Clean the wire mesh inside the burner tube with vinegar and water (greatly helped my flame). Once repaired and you have no leaks I would address the flame spreader issue.
One million thank U
I can't understand why kerosene not straight?
Carefully prick the jet, and then give it a careful light rub with very fine steel wool, or very very fine emery paper.
Then prick again.
Tube .. not damage ?
Thank you, gentlemen, for your generosity
It looks like you have some thing stuck in the orifice.
Perhaps an old cleaning wire has been broken and left in the tiny hole (se blurry blow-up from your picture below).
Try to remove that part, and I'm sure you will get a more straight jet of kerosene. A pair of needle nose pliers might get a grip on the tiny wire.
The jet may very well have been enlarged by all this, but it's worth a try to get that piece of wire away and test again.
Its work very well
thank U all of U
