its warmed up its not hard to maintain the heat, but what could be the
problem is a weak or stuck fuel pressure regulator from the tank. If
theres a problem with the regulator you wont get any heat or enough
heat. Im not sure how they work on stoves but on furnaces a furnace
man sets the furnace valve gas control with a manometer so maybe its
possible it can be checked the same way. I believe what they are doing
is setting the low pressure to the burner from the gas valve. They
often do this after a fuel conversion gas to propane etc. Also the age
of your unit (1965) are you comparing to a new Coleman unit as many
changes have came about in gas appliances for efficiency and safety and
that could be part of the difference also. Hope it helps. I would call
a furnace guy or appliance shop that repairs stoves. Magic Chef may be
able to help you to possibly they have a burner upgrade.
