Hi guys.  I bought a 426D about three years ago.  After a good cleaning, it has worked very well.  Last week after making breakfast, my wife could not turn the stove off.  The knob can be turned to the off position but the gas stays on.  I have limited experience with these other than the basics.  I would like to repair it but I am not really sure where to start.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks

Did the flame finally die out or keep going indefinitely?  Most of my suitcase stoves burn another minute after shutting down.  Had she used it before or was this a new behavior for the stove?

No, it didn't die, it runs like it would when you are cooking.  I know what you are saying and it always took a minute or so to finally quit but this is definitely not it.

Sounds like the valve needs disassembly and cleaning/inspection.   If you are lucky it is jsut a bit of crud at the valve seat.

Does the flame change size as you turn it down?

No, it stays the same no matter which way the knob is turned.  It just started doing it out of the blue.

Do I need to get packing for the valve or can it just be put back together after cleaning?

It depends,  but our sponsor should have the packing if needed.    This almost sounds line the valve stem tip is broken?   You won't know until its disassembled.

Hmm -  is the knob broken in the back and spinning?

No, I just took it apart and everything looks like it should, just dirty.

You say you took it apart - was the pricker still there on the end of the gen pricker rod?

Yes, it was.  I soaked everything overnight and reassembled it today.  It works really well but still won't turn off.  The flame goes down but it continues to burn until I finally get tired of waiting and loosen the cap to let the pressure out.  I don't want to do it that way, I would much rather turn it off the correct way.  Do I need another valve assembly?

I just went ahead and ordered a new valve and generator.

When you had it apart,  how did the needle part of the valve look?  did you look at the seat?  Is the seat, valve housing cracked?

Everything looked fine.  It is weird, it worked fine and then it didn't.  I ordered a new valve so that should take care of it.  I am going to really look at the old one though.  I want to know why it wasn't working correctly.
