The following is for gas fueled Stoves. If your Trangia runs using alcohol, view: Maintenance of Trangia Alcohol Burners.

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.

Required Materials

  • 8mm Wrench
  • Q-tips
  • Rubbing Alcohol
  • Dish soap/Water

How To Maintain Your Trangia Gas Stove

  1. Ensure the burner is disconnected from a fuel source
  2. 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)
  3. Unscrew (counter clockwise) the burner, and put aside
  4. Unscrew the now exposed jet nipple with an 8mm wrench, and remove
  5. 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
  6. DO NOT use needles, or other metal implements to clear the hole - this can deform the hole and pose a safety risk
  7. Once clear, re-seat and tighten the jet nipple.
  8. Test the seal on the jet by putting a small amount of soapy water on it
  9. 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.
  10. Once the jet is fitted properly, re-attach the burner.
  11. Do a test burn to ensure correct function.
