    I have a propane two burner forge that I cannot get to light. When I turn the tank on then the valve on it should light right up. It will fire off for a second or two then sputter out. I turn the valve off then the tank and then flush the forge. I have taken my air compressor and blown all the fittings out but no joy. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    If you are using a small "grill" tank, check the valve port where the hose/regulator connect, a lot of times they will get junk in there and when you first turn it on a little gas makes it into the line than the debris blocks the regulator port, if you haven't already checked this area, that might be a place to start.

    Did you blow the burner tubes out? Spiders love to get in hidey holes and built a nest.
