I chased a problem similar to this on an older (2008) Kz Rock Climber TT....

The main gas line was Black Iron and coming off the Tee's to each appliance was a Copper line going up through the floor.

Believe it or not, the problem was the lines to the fridge and stove both had "just enough" water in them so that when I would turn fridge on Gas, the flow was just enough to push the water towards the fridge but not enough to block flow to it. Then and only then would the stove light. When I'd turn the fridge off, the water the flow had been pushing towards the fridge was held back due to the existing flow through the stove - but as soon as I'd turn a burner off, the flow would drop to the stove allowing the water to move just a bit mor towards the stove and thus, block future flow until I started the fridge on gas again.

I know, sounds impossible, but as soon as I drained the water from the fridge and stove lines, both worked flawlessly for the next 3 years.

The newer rubber hose units shouldn't collect as much water - but condensation happens when there's just air in it and not pressured with propane. Who knows how much collected in the system while it was new and sitting on the lot.

If it were mine, I'd disconnect both the fridge and stove and run those lines back through the floor and to the ground, then put just a bit of air pressure to the line (after disconnecting the regulator from it) to verify you have no water / good flow all the way back.

JRD,

I have the exact same problem. I have the Siesmic Wave 355W and had no issues with my stove until last weekend. I thought I was out of propane so I filled it up (1.5 gallons) and came back and still had the same issue. My outside bbq still works, as does every other gas working appliance. I'm going to go home right now and see if it works while I put the fridge on gas. I stopped by the dealer in Kent and they told me it could be a spider or something in the regulator. I'm going to blow that out. Then I'll check the water in the lines. It's weird that this just happened out of the blue.

Well when I got home last night, I tried the fridge on propane trick....and my stove lit right up. WTH. Once I switched it back to electric and left the burners going, it stayed lit. As soon as I turned them off and let it sit for a min, they wouldn’t light again without the fridge running on propane.

I told a buddy of mine and he said that doesn’t make sense to him either. Not sure what’s going on. His weekend when I have more time I’m going to disconnect the hose from the stove and tee and blow out the hose and see if that helps at all.

I’ll keep y’all informed.

Sorry old thread. But what was conclusion? My stove mysteriously stopped working this weekend. No flow gas sound at all. Everything else ran fine on propane.

To the top. I have exactly same issue. I was just wondering what the conclusion was? We leave for Oregon this week and right now I wonít have a stove. I have a Coleman for backup.

Artsville; something is blocking the flow towards your stove. The don't install valves in the line thus something else must be blocking the flow. Pinched copper pipe or debris in the operating valves. If you have a compressor you can blow air through the lines, valves from the stove.

thanks....i have no gas flow to any of the burners. I am going to disconnect the gas line coming into the stove to see if i am getting flow to the stove at least. It's too hot today though.

Is it possible to block the whole manifold into the 3 burners? I am also wondering if the stove regulator is bad? Do they typically fail?

There is a small regulator in the burner assembly with a screen which might have accumulated dirt during manufacturing of the RV. If you have gas at that connection then you know the small regulator is the problem.
