This burner has 4 concentric cylinders standing in circular grooves and between these cylinders are 2 circular wicks.
Now these wicks are not necessary to the functioning of the burner and their purpose is to facilitate relighting the stove.
This last occasion I forgot to replace these wicks but the stove was able to be relit owing to the vapour in the area.
I realize that this was not a clever thing to do but I would like to ask an expert whether I should go to the trouble of dismantling the burner again seeing as the flame seems perfect.
Should I just hold onto the wicks for now and just remember to put them (or other newer wicks) back the next time I service the Aga?
I am fairly confident that the burner will work equally well (if not better) in the meantime.
Edit : perhaps there was one wick left in which helped the ignition since I seem to recall there may have been 3 wicks (makes sense with 4 cylinders) and I can only see 2 that I did not put back....
