I purchased a Nova. I am having difficulty getting it lit, the fuel bottle pressurises, but no fuel comes into the stove when I open the valve. I am using shellite.
Any suggestions?

Hi Emily,
Sounds like you have a clogged burner jet, fuel line, or control valve. 1. Make sure the magnetic cleaning needle is functioning properly, 2. Make sure the fuel is unimpeded by pouring a small amount into the line @ the valve attachment. Fuel should come out of the jet @ this point, 3. Inspect the valve assembly to make sure it is working properly. Turn the attached valve completely off & pressurize the fuel bottle/tank with twenty pumps. Open the valve & see if liquid fuel is spraying out. Repeat steps one & two if necessary. The below link has some additional information:
