    Is anyone else still having these wonderful:Doh: things just stop working? this one shows no signs of oily substance in the pipes or anywhere you can see it just did not work after a few weeks of not being used.It seems everyone blames everyone else and expects us to keep buying the *************** things:shout:

    On ours, we have Novacomet - probably a cheap brand, but never had a problem with it - been on a few years now!

    i've always used regular bottle top calor regulators on my vans and at home on cabinet heaters, both butane and propane, with never a problem.

    Regulator failure

    Here's a question for you. If the problem is oil clogging the regulator and you replace the regulator with one that doesn't block then where is the oil going?
