Default RE: Hung Start PST 600r with only 6 hours run time since 25 hour checkup

Had the exact same problem with my J800R, thought there was something drastically wrong with the turbine or pump or ECU or programming. Turned out to be a small matter of starting technique. I simply shut off the propane as it ramps through 10-15k rpm. It continues to ramp perfectly on kero. My head tells me the ECU and solenoid should be controlling the propane and I should be able to just sit there and watch. Experience tells me too much propane can be a problem, and the small task of shutting off the propane a little early solved the problem. Give it a try and let us know...
