/ MSR Windpro wont 'roar'
or just screw it on tighter? I have found the tolerance of the MSR stoves very fine, and you sometimes need to use more brute force to squash the rubber seal a bit.
I've had the same issue, normally when starting a new cylinder of gas, once you screw it down tight a couple of times it goes on easily.
Yep. I think I had a partial blockage in the flexible fuel line- never managed to get it fixed though.
The way i sorted it was to push the head of a needle through the tiny tiny hole after the flexible tubing (ie where the gas comes out).
Is it a Coleman gas cylinder? If so, the MSR stoves don't seem to be able to open the Lindall valve properly. Unless you really screw the thing down very tightly.
Cheers for all the responses guys. Tried all the options with no avail. Might have to strip it down and have a closer look at the jet. No responses from MSR's distributors which is unfortunate.
Either way dont strip it out yourself but send it back to me at the address below and I`ll sort it out for you

Awesome, many thanks. I didn't mean it as a dig, I was just very surprised to have not heard from you as everyone had said how good you were to deal with. I sent my message to "firstname.lastname@example.org" on the 11th. I could always try again might be a problem at my end. Do you think it will be a quick fix?
The stove should be fixed and on its way back to you the same day I receive it in the office (However Im only in the office Mon-Wed next week so get it in the post asap to get it back quickly)
All the best Lindsay
Yep Im afraid its a hotmail address. Ill try to get it in the post later today back to you guys.
