Hello I purchased these 7 years ago and they have done fine, until the other night. It produced a strong odor (like burning oil?). We really don't have a LP gas company near, and its the same tank we have for the last 2 years. Any ideas?

Our Answer:

This concern could potentially be caused by unburned or inefficiently burned fuel. An increase in gas pressure could cause this, as could blocked burner ports. If the burner ports have become blocked or clogged, the available propane would be forced to exit the burner unevenly. This would in turn result in an uneven burn. A thorough cleaning and inspection (including a gas pressure reading) of the unit could likely lead to the cause of this problem.
