    Does anyone know of a source for spare parts for the Juwel 34 stove? A manual or schematic would help also.

    Greetings, @sirguy104 ,

    Welcome to CCS!! As for your parts needed, because the stove is older, and hasn't been in production for a long time, finding spare parts might be a long, hard row to hoe! You can try The Basecamp, but I'm not sure of anyone else that "might" have what you need. What parts, specifically, are you seeking? In the end, you may have to just buy another stove that seems to have the parts you need, then blend them together to make one, complete stove.

    The Basecamp: spares@base-camp.co.uk

    Since you only have one post, to date, I'm not sure if you will be able to see this, or not. Usually, the Reference material is reserved for subscribers here at CCS, and sometimes you have to have a certain number of posts, too. 10-15, posts, if memory serves. If I'm wrong, I'm sure another someone in the knew will pop in to correct me. I hope you can see this, and that it is helpful to you.

    After March 10th, you can check back to The Fettle Box, which is our in house place to buy rebuild kits, of some popular stoves. Until that date, TFB is closed. Good luck, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc

    Thanks for the reply. One thing I need is a graphite washer because mine crumbled in my hands. Then I would like to replace any other washer/O rings as well.

    Nice stove! I don’t have a Jewel, but I’m confident seals and gaskets won’t be a problem finding.

    It needs a graphite washer, which I'm having made by a machinist at work.

    All you needed was some graphite tape or sheets, cutting strip(s) to size them compress once or twice into place. Clean/shine up the shaft/spindle a little to insure a better seal.

    I think your right because it has a flame coming from the spindle exit.

    I often collect that broken, crumbling, graphite, and push it back it, having cleaned the spindle, and it works well.

    Not really sure what you're saying.

    I am saying that the graphite does not have to be a formed piece to work.
    Packing crumbled graphite back into the space, and tightening the nut is all I do. I have only used new graphite to add to graphite packing that was less size than I desired.

    0315211349.jpg Why does my stove burn through the adjustment valve?

    Hi, there is packing gland containing compressible graphite packing. This packing needs to be compressed sufficiently to stop fuel vapour leaking and igniting, while still allowing the control spindle to be turned.
    You need to tighten the hexagonal packing nut sufficient to stop the vapour leak, while still allowing the spindle to rotate.

    Best Regards,

    Thanks to everyone my stove is now working. Now I have another question. It seems to have two settings, off and wide open. Since the adjustment is a needle valve shouldn't there be more adjustment?

    There's not a lot of adjustability in these stoves, but there should be a little in the degree or so of rotation just before 'off'. Keep in mind that the original design (Juwel 33) was for soldiers, and the 34 was for mountaineers and hikers. All of those groups were likely more than happy with a stove that was easy to start, hot, and reliable. Ability to simmer was not a high priority.
