    HI I have a Tasman model 4500 cooker,i bought the Doblo without a gas cyclinder ,i was told a Camping Gaz 907 would be needed,and this fits in the locker compartment,any larger cylinder would not fit.i had to use a new regulator to convert to Camping gaz,problem is the cooker will light on just 1 ring and once the control on the cooker is released out goes the flame.any ideas,any help much appreciated.Thanks

    You would be safer finding a gas engineer who can service it but the cost of any repairs needed might be more than a new one. :unsure:

    Most hobs need to heat a thermo couple up to keep the gas flowing. So light it and hold in for a few seconds till it warms up then release. You could try that?

    I've got a Tasman 2500 in my Doblo, the hobs stay lit almost immediately but the grill takes several seconds. Campingaz 907 bottle with a wall-mounted regulator in the gas locker.

    Roy - just replying here to the message you posted on my profile page, because it might be useful to others more knowledgable than myself.

    If one hobs doesn't keep lit after several minutes of holding the knob in, and one doesn't light at all then clearly something is not right. As already posted, it could be the thermocouple.

    (As for your query on tyre pressure - I've stuck with the Fiat handbook's recommendation for the heavily laden MPV version, which is what mine is based on. For the stock Pirellis that's 2.3 bar front, 2.7 rear when cold (33/39 psi). For other brands you should probably get the van weighed and then contact the tyre manufacturer.)

    Mine came with spring assistors already fitted by Fiat - at first I thought they were bump-stops but then I realised they were always just in contact with the leaf-springs and checked with the local Fiat dealer, who confirmed they were factory-fitted assistors.
