Review of Villager B series stove

Very disapointing

Chris 8 years ago

This is review for villager B LPG stove. Very disappointed with this Stove and over the last 5 years have had no end of problems with it. It has the remote control option which was a expensive option to purchase. Very difficult to light if it lights at all. Have replaced the Gas control Valve, 3 X thermocouples, 2 X Control boxes and remote sensor over the last 5 years and now it has failed again. Now cannot get spares from Arada so only fit for scrap now.
