    Genesis JetBoil heat dial fix?

    What's up mags. Last year one of the plastic dials came off/snapped off the outer burner on my JetBoil genesis base camp thingy and now only runs at full gas. Other burner can barely run at all beyond a simmer.

    I haven't been able to get any pliers to turn the pin (circled) that would normally be turned by the plastic dial (intact one is higher in the pic). JB says I can only send it in for inspection.

    Is there any hacks to get this pin to rotate so I can modulate the flame, or some kind of Coleman replacement part I could put on there?

    Thanks

    Dumb question but, have you already tried to get Jetboil warranty help?


    **Edit** - that was a dumb question. My only thought would be gluing a paperclip to the knob to make it hand-turnable. Good luck man.

    Hmmm... interesting idea! Had not thought of that. Will give it a whirl!

    Can you grind a slot in the end or grind a couple sides flat for more purchase? Or will the whole assembly come out so you can close it from the inside and use the other burner?

    yeah so if i was doing it i would grind two slots offset from one another (to allow the paperclip to torque against the knob shaft) and then use a fuckton of glue.
