Poor Quality - Burner/Tube Does not line up
This is now our 2nd replacement warranty stove in less then a year. There is misalignment with the fuel tank & tube, and burner assemlby when attached to the stove. Because of the misalignment, the tube does not properly fit into the 'female' burner . It appears the main burner assembly is not attached in the exact spot it needs to be for the tube to fully inside, and causes the tank not to hang properly on the front.

25+ years going strong
My mom won this in a radio contest about 25-ish years ago and it has been used on many camping trips since. Years passed and it began to act up, and then got shoved to the side. Recently, I saved it from being sold off in a yard sale and was determined to get it going again. After a little bit of messing around I figured out the problem was that the pump seal had gone dry. A little bit of wd-40 fixed that problem, and it was running great again. I have used it several times since, using it to boil pots of water and such, and plan on taking it with me on next trip I make to a state park nearby. It puts out good heat, as good as or better than our electric induction stove inside. It lights about as well as I would expect from a gas stove, but I still recommend using nothing shorter than a kitchen match or a bbq lighter. The farther away your hands are the better. It holds up weight well, I tested this with a 6 qt. cast iron pot full of water and didn't give a sign of trouble. Overall I would say it has a good time-tested design, being simple, durable, reliable, and easy to use with a bit of practice.
