In recent days, I do not cook because my gas stove regolator damaged. I went to Pertamina, to buy a regulator. I came to pertamina so I can buy a good regulator. But it turns out at Pertamina does not provide the regulator. Then I went to the store and buy a regulator. I chose the regulators that are expensive and there is a logo of SNI. But after I use, the smell of gas continues to go out and do not go away. I am very disappointed because of this. Where can I buy a good regulator?

maybe you should first check the condition of the tube and your stove. Some time ago, I also have a problem with the smell of gas. Although I had already replaced the hose and regulator, the smell of gas still smelled. Apparently the cause is lighter my stove has worn

Stove, had I checked, and his condition is still good. Odor source is near the regulator. I've tried with other stoves, I have just bought. But it still smells as well. If allowed to know, what brand of your regulator?

we can't count on Pertamina about this. My sister also try to buy the new one in pertamina but just like, she ended in disappointed. maybe you can change it and give it back to Pertamina and ask for new one. i ever try to buy in hypermarket, but it does not match with the gas can

I've gone to Pertamina, but I was disappointed, because Pertamina does not provide the regulator.

you did not mention if you brought your old regulator to the store so the dealer can give you the same kind of regulator. it doesn't matter if it's different brand but at least it's the same measurement or size that fits exactly to the tank. i also had this experience. but i bought a different brand as the old one has no more supply available, then it did not fit well. the gas was leaking. so i ended up buying another from a "Do It Yourself" store for example. at least they can recommend a good brand with guaranteed return or exchange if it doesn't work. anyhow, i later planned to change the whole unit. from tank to stove. hehe. have a safe cooking.

I can not change my regulator, because I have to deal directly with the manufacturer. Because the warranty is not from the store. Very sad, but I can not do anything, and I had to buy a regulator, with a much more expensive price.

Maybe you should buy a gas safety device. This safety device pressure regulator and not move. In addition, this tool can save gas.

Thank you for your advice. Maybe I do have to buy gas safety devices.

You get it from your gas dealer. Before, you buy it and take it home, have them check for leaks etc. At home you can do that by having a sponge soaked with soap water and sqeeze it against the regulator to check for leaks. if there are leaks you will bubbles. You can take it back for refund or replacement.

Legulator I bought at the store, and I can not try. Previously I had to Pertamina and gas agent, but does not provide the regulator.

indahft as expensive as this may sound, maybe have an expert come to check on the actual stove itself. The gas immersing is a dangerous thing. Be careful as gas fumes within your home can be quite dangerous, whereas you can go to sleep and be so engulfed by the gas fumes no one will awake. Maybe go to your local appliance store and ask for their opinion, but do be careful with this appliance. Gas fumes are seemingly silent and your life could be at stake. God Bless.

My stove was fine. Odor source at the regulator. I now do not dare to cook, because the smell out of gas. I know, this is dangerous. Looks like I have to buy another regulator.

It's very annoying. Maybe you can buy a regulator quantum, many people say, was very nice, and there are no problems when installed.
