Used our stove for the first time last week. Worked brilliantly at first.
A few days in and when i went to use the grill, the flames kept going upwards and out through the gap between the hob burners iyswim.

Is it a case that i just didn't notice it before, or has something gone wrong with it?

Hope you can help. Off again on Friday and need to sort it.

was it windy?
our grill is rubbish so we just have fried bread

oh, meant to say, could also be the gas pressure dropping if your cylinder was low - it takes a forceful squirt of gas to make sure the flames are horizontal not (as they would naturally be) vertical)

was breezy, but have got 2 windshields round it ie, on the stove and on the kitchen table thing as well iyswim.
Did wonder whether it was to do with the wind.

So is the answer to get a toaster then?

You could also have a hole in the pipe.

No funnily enough we had just changed the gas bottle. Could this be something to do with it?
