The first time I used my AMNS I had a problem with all of it flaming up. As discussed here:
However, thanks to you all, I was able to easily remedy that problem by placing it on a cookie sheet. But the last time I tried to used it, it wouldn't stay lit. Now I was just using a cigarette lighter. My butane torch bit the bullet and I haven't replaced it yet. My question is: does using the torch to ignite it make that much of a difference?
For example, this time I lit it on one end, and it looked like it was good to go, and it was near the vent, but when I check it later it was out. So I re-lit it and the other end. Same thing, they both went out. Finally, I lit both ends and the middle. Same thing. this is was it looked like when I was done cooking after about 10 or 12 hours...
I'm still not ready to give up on this little guy. Hopefully I can remedy this by getting the proper flame to it. Anyone had any similar problems? Thanks. FYI, the dust and unit are fairly new, so I doubt the dust is wet.
