I set a disposable plastic bowl of Yummy Chicken noodle soup on a burner that was not cooled down enough. Big melted mess. I poped it apart and it cleaned right up but this trip it’s not burning. The burner looks clean ??
Can I field fix it or wait to soak it at home?
Assuming some of the small holes are clogged and that the burner unscrews, why not take it apart and heat it up with a torch, the other burner, some source of fire to melt the plastic and get it to flow out? MEK (available at Lowe's/HD) will melt a lot of plastics so that's an option. Don't get it on you or inhale it but it volatilizes quickly.
The whole burner grill assemble lifts right out but does not come apart.
I uses a welding torch tip cleaning tool (small wire) and cleaned out all the burner holes. It burns evenly thru all the holes now but has a yellow flame. The pics make it look more dramatic but its either getting too much or not enough air. I blew it out with the air compressor but no change.
It’s burning right now and I’m going to let it cook for a while to see if it will incinerate the blockage. You just can’t get into the burner so be careful with spills.
What used to be my favorite site I hardly visit anymore. I bought a new IPad and still can’t seem to fiqure out how to write a post, edit it and post pics in the right place. Its such a pita. I even droped my scrip to the rag because if I can’t enjoy the conversations on the topics then why get fustrated with them. I have no idea what this post will look like for example but had enough trouble writing it that you get the garbage out from the gabage in .sorry
Partner Steel sells a repair kit with both tools and spare parts - has a couple of spare burner "diffusers" (not sure what they're actually called, but the round metal pieces with all the holes in them) https://partnersteel.com/cook-partner-accessories
