This is not a knock on Partner - I did not follow their directions / did exactly what they said not to do and hindsight was just plain dumb.

Have since purchased 2 3-burner 26” stoves and follow Manufacture’s directions to a T
I've rehabbed a Partner four burner that was destroyed by melting the solder joint connecting the valve to the manifold. The solder destroyed the valve's threads. Partner will sell you the manifold assembly, which you can replace with the right wrenches (tight quarters, but do-able). I guess you could destroy the case by running over it with a tank, but at least the 4-burner stoves are completely rebuildable. I've never cooked a valve on my own stoves, but I've become the maintenance volunteer for the stoves our museum's paleontology field crew abuse.

Square Tube

I also found the stove HEATS up hot enough to melt rocks. I use 3/4 square steel tubes. I cut them to fit front to back across the stove. I tried using 1/4", but they also let my pans get too hot. Another fix would be figuring out how to get the knobs to turn down lower, but the 'lowest' setting is still ripping hot.
