The gas stove in my 2007 Hanse 400e was never used and looks to be in good condition.
Recently I decided go put it to use but found that the gas does not flow to the stove.
I tested  pumping air (from the tank chamber)at high pressure and it was completely stuck.
Besides the valve next to stove, is there any other hidden valve or safety feature preventing the gas flow?

1. You have to change the hose anyway, as the old hose is to old, if never changed since 2007! Just for your safety!
2. Check the Pressure regulator, which is placed right above the gas bottle. Mine was blocked at the first time aswell and was changed by the yard.
3. Open the valve above the Gasbottle aswell!
3. Check the gas bottle, maybe it is empty......

BTW have you checked if the boat is equipped with a electrically operated safety valve at the bottle ?

Thanks all for the responses.

I got it to work. There was no other valve or chokage. Its just that I needed to press the knobs at the gas stove as I turn them and hold for a few seconds.Embarrassed.

Thank you very much.
