It wouldn't hurt to buff it down, seal it with JB Weld Metal and hit it with some high heat silver spray paint.

Propane Flame Tempurature

"In complete combustion with a blue-colored flame, the temperature of a propane flame is 3,596° F"

Everything right around that flame will easily exceed 500 F..

Propane appliances are not the place to be cheap or experiment with..

All it takes is a slight leak of unlit propane to sink into the stove and build up until it reaches the lit burner and you and your camper may no longer be in one piece.

Don't get me wrong, I am all for DIYing things but there are somethings best not done on the cheap or hillbilly style.
And at least 90% of that heat is ABOVE the burner. I have stood under mega btu heat exchange boiler burners and it barely felt warm.

I don't know why you want to scare people into spending their money

Wow I didn't consider all these truths.

Propane is heavy and sinks right? I guess I'm lucky it decided to ignite before it accumulated beneath the stove. How hot does that crimped area where it is rusted reach?

Does the blower exhaust fan running provide any safety for a situation like this?

I left that piece of paper under the burner for over a minute and it didn't even get warm. Try it

It also seems to be coming (the flame) out of those small holes where the flash tube (another rusted component I can't find) connects.

I measured my house propane burner, touching an uncalibrated type K TC to the burner housing under the flame. It peaked at 246F.

Keep in mind this is my burner and the meter is uncalibrated, but this will give you a ballpark answer. Even a 10% error would be less than 300F.

300F falls way short of 3500F.

Lots of clear air above the burners in those pictures. Try putting a big pot on, blocking the heat.

I thought about that.

I'm going to use my camper stove to boil water while measuring temps when I have time. I'll also measure an ice bath and boiling water to validate my probe.

I finally found some time to get back to this.

My probe measured an ice bath to be 36f and boiling water was 214f. Close enough.

I placed the probe at the base of my camper Suburban stove front burner. I do not know its btu

Having a pot of boiling water over the probe, the burner reached 575f

[image]

The next one surprised me. After I removed the boiling pot, I reduced the flame to see what the burner base temp would drop to. Surprisingly, It increased to 690f. I can only guess it wasn't creating enough updraft under it and/or the actual flame is closer to the burner.

Again, this is my Suburban stove. Your temps may, and probably will differ.

I hope this helps someone
