    Whilst cooking yesterday one of the gas rings was not putting out full heat.low flame.I thought it must be a faulty switch.Then heating went off.Thought it was empty gas bottle.so changed over to new one.lit gas hob faulty burner would light.changed over to another ring no problems.Untill i came to turn it off.I turned nob off.but the burner stayed lit.turned gas off.Decided to bypass magiscope.put a normal propane regulator on via a piece of gas pipe i use for cadac.All working now.Will get a new regulator when we get home.magiscope reg 80 pounds.But seen a manual regulator by gaslow 35 pounds.If pipe size is same can I fit this instead.I never use automatic changeover as its easy to forget and empty both bottles.Any advice appreciated

    I'd go for manual for the same reason. The pipe should be the same size (y)

    Hi, Are you saying that you turned the gas hob burner knob OFF and the burner on the hob stayed lit?

    Didn't think a faulty regulator could have stopped the cooker valve from working. Hope someone can explain that.. I'm interested.
