I picked up an a Exponent liquid fuel stove NIB a few months ago.  It lights up fine but I cannot get this stove to simmer.  It’s either full blast or off.  Any help??   TIA

First, I don't have that stove so can't be of much help, but did you try running with lower pressure to see if it behaves better for you?

Is your Exponent a 442, 445A or 550B, or other?

Some of these can be very finicky. Pull the generator off and make sure the cleaning wire is attached to the E Block. It works just like the cleaning rod in a lantern generator. It also controls the flame height on these little stoves. I have a 440 that works the same as the 442. It is very touchy to get it to simmer. I have other 442's that are not touchy and you can find the simmer without any problems.

I've seen this same issued with a 533 also.  Was unable to figure it out.  Changed out the genny and fuel tube/Schrader, but no luck.  Finally punted on this one.

My feather 442 is either a flamethrower or a fireball, not my favorite stove but great for coffee. If you want simmer look for something with a second control thingy like a 400A or a much older stove like a 500A or 502.

442 stoves in my opinion need really high pressure to avoid flooding, I wouldn't run mine without pumping it till my thumb hurt unless I had a fire extinguisher nearby.
