Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Stove won't stay lit

I guess I should have taken a closeup of the burner! There is something special about the hole lined up with the thermocouple (if it is actually a thermocouple? I was thinking it might be a mercury-filled tube). Both burners have this feature, and the rings are notched so they only fit in one orientation -- the orientation that has this feature lined up with the thermocouple. Flame does come out of it, but in a slightly different pattern than the other holes. The thermocouple is definitely in the flame.
There is a tiny bit of slop in both the base and the burner ring. I have noticed in the past that if the base is rotated to touch the thermocouple, it won't stay lit. I assume this is because the base acts as a heat sink and prevents it from reaching the necessary temperature. I have verified that is not the cause of my current problem.
Thank you for your help! I'll post a closeup of the burner tonight if this is still unsolved when I get home.
