Turn regulator knob down until desire flame level is reached.

Place flame modifier in the burner tube to cool flame.

Stove fails to light or lights with a small yellow flame.

Fuel tank is near empty.

Shut off the tank valve and the regulator control knob for a few seconds. Remove the flame modifier from the burner tube. Turn the tank valve on slowly. Turn the regulator control knob on one turn and light stove.

Refill the tank.

Match is blown out as it approaches lighting hole.


Regulator control knob is turned up too high.

Turn the regulator control knob down and try again.

Flame fades slowly and turns yellow.


Tank is either low on fuel or too small for the desired application (tank chilling indicates tank is too small).

The standard Power Stove fitting does not work with my tank.


Propane tank manufacturers are now required to use Type 1 tank valves. The Power Stove comes standard with a Type 1 regulator inlet fitting to match.

Older propane tanks may not feature the industry standard TYPE 1 fitting. Because of the inherent safety features, Woodland recommends you only use tanks with TYPE 1 fittings.

Heavy black soot forms on stove and cookware.

Stove is turned too low to burn efficiently.

Flame modifier is not in use during low level cooking.

Flame is burning below the flame modifier while in use.

Use the flame modifier to cool the stove flame (instead of turning the stove down to a yellow flame). When using the flame modifier, light the stove at the top of the burner for a cleaner burn.
