I have never had that problem.
What wick material are you using.
Have you checked that the sump is still full when your wicks go out?

The fiberglass wicks that they come with. Happened today after refilling was unable to get them to relight until I remove them and put them back in Really strange. Also that is one smooth running engine you got there!

Sorry, have no idea as mine is the Aster version and still has the original asbestos wicks in it.
I understand that the ends of the fibreglass wicks can melt and fuse together which wouldn't help.
I would suggest trying to get some different wick material.
