Burner Valve Rebuild Information
And help on removing burner
valves for rebuilding
We do not sell valve cream for
There are several reasons why
we do not.
We feel that the general public
is not trained nor licensed to work with gas related items. There
are several safety factors that are involved. One of the most
important reasons is that the general public will not have the
testing equipment. After 50 plus years who knows what parts have
failed inside the valve. Do you the general public have replacements
of failed parts. We would guess not. Will the valve cream miraculously
repair the failed parts? We don't think so!
Sure you could just take the
valve apart and add some valve cream inside it and hope for the
best, but do you want to put yourself, your family and your home
You are dealing with gas!
Then you need to ask yourself
are you sure you reinstall the parts correctly? Are you sure you
sealed the valve correctly. Are you sure that you do not have
any leaks.... no matter how slight?
There is a lot more to rebuilding
valves than just adding some valve cream inside a valve. So don't
let some DO-IT-YOURSELF CLUB that doesn't do restorations
of antique stoves tell you that valve cream
is all you need to repair your valves.
The burner valves can also be rebuilt to turn and
function properly. Valves in need of a rebuild often are difficult
to turn and sometimes they even leak gas.

arrange a rebuild.
