Step-by-Step Maintenance Of Trangia Gas Burner Stoves
Trangia's Isobutane gas burner maintenance involves inspecting wear on the O-rings, and removing any built up soot or other deposits from inside the element around the jet nipple and is quick and straightforward to do. If you notice a reduced fuel flow rate, a consistently low flame, or the burner continuing to produce a flame after the gas is shut off, these are all indicators that your unit needs cleaning.

- Rubbing Alcohol
- Dish soap/Water
How To Maintain Your Trangia Gas Stove
- Ensure the burner is disconnected from a fuel source
- Check the O-Ring at the gas canister end for deformation, cracking or splitting. If it shows any signs of the above, replace the O-Ring with part number 888006 O-ring (902349)
- Unscrew (counter clockwise) the burner, and put aside
- Unscrew the now exposed jet nipple with an 8mm wrench, and remove
- Blow through the hole in the nipple to remove soot and residue. Should this not completely clear the jet, a Q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol can be used to wipe the interior of the jet
- DO NOT use needles, or other metal implements to clear the hole - this can deform the hole and pose a safety risk
- Once clear, re-seat and tighten the jet nipple.
- Test the seal on the jet by putting a small amount of soapy water on it
- Re-attach to a gas canister and check for bubbles around the edges of the jet. If bubbles appear, tighten the jet, and re-test.
- Once the jet is fitted properly, re-attach the burner.
- Do a test burn to ensure correct function.
