The clip needs to go on with the "clicker" to the left as you look at the valve head on..

This is an excellent reference with lots of pictures etc., it does not give the prices, however.

You can check Ebay for completed prices if you need an idea of value.

I have not found a book yet with accurate values on Coleman lanterns.

SOURCE: how to light coleman lantern

Kerosene lanterns require a little more than just lighting the mantles. Go to Coleman's website and find the directions (for free) for KEROSENE lanterns. The generator on the lantern needs to be preheated with alcohol before it will actually light. Make sure lantern is a Kerosene lantern and not a white gas (Coleman fuel) type, there is a difference even though they look similar.

What fuel does my 335 lantern run on pat no 1969 globe 4,mantle 999 generator 63 0n bottom fuel tank has a no 937416 and year 1969 any information would be great


happytimes17-

This lantern is designed to run on gasoline, but will work best with white gas, also generically known as "coleman fuel" in many areas. White gas is in fact a more pure form of gasoline, without many of the fine particulates and impure distillates found in automotive gasoline.

Most hardware stores and sporting goods stores carry Coleman or other brands of white gas.

Hope this helps.

I have a Coleman 228F model lantern. When I go to light it, it barely produces any gas. I have made sure it is pumped adequetly and full of new fuel. I can hear gas coming out very faintly and sometimes...


It's likely that it was left away with fuel in it. This causes gel to form which blocks the fuel getting through. The blockage could be anywhere between the tank and the mantles. The order I would check in are;
  1. The feed tube assembly
  2. The generator
  3. The Burner
It's possible to get these parts from coleman or coleman suppliers. To find which needs replacing you'd need access to another similar lantern and try replacing one at a time. Otherwise it's going to be trial and error or just replace all.

There's a manual which shows the assembly and the order number for parts at http://www.coleman.com/coleman/images/pdf/220f_228F.pdf
I hope this is of some help.

I have a coleman propane lantern model 5417 that will not light. Does seem to be getting the propane. Appreciate any help or ideas. Thanks, Joe


Clean the hole in the tip of the generator, or turn the wire handle 360 deg. 2 or three times, and try to light the lantern with the wire handle in the down position.
I hope I was some help? Cheers David dwfarrell@gruvy.com

Have three coleman hws same problem on last weekend. Fully charged batteries 6.45volts. New gas bottles. Turn unit on water starts to run gas ignites for one to two seconds and then goes out water will...


It will probably be one of two issues. Either the waterflow sensor is not working correctly or the propane valve connected to to control knob is stuck shut. The water flow sensor is located on the side of the copper element (grey box) check that it spins easily. The propane valve is attached to the control knob by a long metal wire and should turn freely as you turn the control knob to warm

Coleman lantern doesn't appear to be pressurisig when priming with the pump as a result it doesn't light. I have checked for blockages and there doesn't appear to be any. Any thoughts


After verifying enough fuel in the tank, if you have turned the pump plunger handle counter clockwise 1/2 turn or so and cover the hole in the pliunger with your thumb while pushing it in, lift thumb off the hole while pulling it out and the pump is not building pressure, you can apply a few drop of oil to the plunger oil hole. If it still won't build pressure, Loosen the tank fill cap slowly to release any pressure that may be built up and turn the pump retaining ring to the left and remove the pump unit. Inspect the plunger cup for deterioration or cracks. replace partsasnecessary. Should be available where lanterns are sold.

My old Coleman lantern pump failed. How to replace?


Pull the ends of the retainer clip (handle looking thing on the metal pump cover) out of the holes. The pump can be pulled out at that time. I just replaced a pump, and walmart sells replacement pumps. It was very easy.
